One possible direction is looking at the (computational) hardness of distributions. For example, a family of distributions $\{\mathcal{P}_n\}_{n\in\mathbb{N}}$ where $\mathcal{P}_n$ is a distribution over $\{0,1\}^n$ is called polynomialy-samplable (you can substitute here any other type of time/space restriction) if there exists a probabilistic polynomial ...

While a specific program could be self-delimiting, in this context what we usually mean is a self-delimiting encoding of programs. An encoding of programs is self-delimiting if it forms a prefix code, that is, no program is a prefix of another program. Intuitively, programs are self-delimiting, so there is no ambiguity in where a program ends. Why do we care?...
