I'm confused.

first column:
Fi(w | w ∈ W) =
Fi(n | n ∈ N) =

second column:
∪
∪
∪
∪
where Recurse is (Fi(n) \ ε) ∪ Fi(tail(w))
fold(map(hash(G, n), Fi), ∪, ∅)

third column:
{ ε
{ t
( Fi(n)
{ ε
( Recurse

The third column is clearly stretching to fit the last cell "( Recurse"
The relevant source is:
<td>(&nbsp;Recurse</td>
-- Which clearly indicates that the author doesn't want any wrapping.

fourth column:
|
|
|
|
|

The "where Recurse" bit from the second column is left aligned (like
everything else) and is undersized relative to the row above it:

∪ ( Recurse | Recurse ⊈ ∅, ε ∈ Fi(n), n ∈ N, n = head(w) )
In my browser, I have that split as:

∪ ( Recurse |                    Recurse ⊈ ∅,
              ε ∈ Fi(n), n ∈ N, n = head(w) )

where Recurse is (Fi(n) \ ε) ∪ Fi(tail(w))

I don't see a problem, the author asked for something mildly stupid by
overdesigning a table, and got what was requested.
