  Function (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, a function is a relation, such that each element of a set (the domain) is associated with a unique element of another (possibly the same) set (the codomain, not to be confused with the range).
A very common type of function occurs when the argument (input) and the value (output) are both numbers, the functional relationship is expressed by a formula, and the value (output) of the function is obtained by direct substitution of the argument into the formula.
The number of computable functions from integers to integers is countable, because the number of possible algorithms is. The number of all functions from integers to integers is higher: the same as the cardinality of the real numbers.

 Review of intervals and functions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
For example, the domain of a function may be a set of complex numbers and the function may associate a set with each member of its domain.
All the functions in this tutorial, however, have the two features, and the word "function" throughout means a rule that associates a number with every point in some subset of the set of n-vectors of numbers (where n may be 1).
B is used for a function given by the rule f and the domain A whose range is a subset of B.

The three reasons for difficulty in transfer function specification, which were outlined in the previous section, can be considered in the context of a conceptual gap between the spatial and transfer function domains.
The main role of the transfer function widget is to present a graphical representation of the transfer function domain, in which feedback from querying the volume (with the data probe or clipping plane) is displayed, and in which the transfer function itself can be set and altered.
The balls at the corners of the transfer function widget are used to resize it, as with a desktop window, and the bars on the edges are used to translate its position.

A function is something that associates each element of a set with an element of another set (which may or may not be the same as the first set).
Then the domain and codomain of this f are N, the image of, say 3, under this function is 9, and its range is the set of squares, i.e.

 Web-Hermes Chapter 4: Ingres domain function / mediator example.
The function output type, in this case a relational database table, is computed by the built-in data function, which takes the file and field name inputs and assigns the output from the matching mediator data declaration.
While relational databases are probably the most common domain class, the general domain function framework applies to many other types of software as well.
After domain X exists within Hermes, then additional X domain data files can be integrated simply by writing the appropriate mediator data declarations which describe the underlying data structures (and is used ultimately to define the domain data function output type) of the new X files.

 Inverse Functions Lesson - II
That is, the domain of the inverse is also "all real numbers", and the range of the inverse is also "all real numbers".
With the domain restricted like this, the function does have an inverse that is also a function.
Just about any time they give you a problem where they've taken the trouble to restrict the domain, you should take care with the algebra and draw a nice picture, because the inverse probably is a function, but it will probably take some extra effort to show this.

Now we can formulate a definition of a function more exactly: such a rule (law) of a correspondence between a set X and a set Y, that for each element of a set X one and only one element of a set Y can be found, is called a function.
A graph of an even function is symmetrical relatively y-axis (Fig.5), a graph of an odd function is symmetrical relatively the origin of coordinates (Fig.6).
Geometrically, a zero of a function is x-coordinate of a point of intersection of the function graph and x-axis.

 S _XFER S-Domain Transfer Function
The s-domain transfer function includes gain and input offset parameters to allow for tailoring of the required signal.
There are no limits on the internal signal values or on the output value of the s-domain transfer function, so you are cautioned to specify gain and coefficient values that will not cause the model to produce excessively large values.
In AC analysis, the value returned is equal to the real and imaginary components of the total s-domain transfer function at each frequency of interest.

 Articles - Continuous function   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Such a function can be represented by a graph in the Cartesian plane; the function is continuous if, roughly speaking, the graph is a single unbroken curve with no "holes" or "jumps": if it can be drawn by hand without lifting the pencil from the paper.
Again consider a function f that maps a set of real numbers to another set of real numbers, and suppose c is an element of the domain of f.
If a function has a domain which is not an interval, the notion of a continuous function as one whose graph you can draw without taking your pencil off the paper is not quite correct.

 Mathematical Properties
First, note that the Wigner function derived from a steady-state (4.56) or transient solution of (4.33) is purely real-valued, because both the Liouville equation (4.33) and the boundary conditions (4.36) are purely real.
The Wigner function is obtained by transforming to the coordinates q and r, followed by a Fourier transform with respect to r.
The domain of the Wigner function does not coincide with that of the system-system density operator, and the Wigner function domain extends into regions which describe system-reservoir correlations.

The domain of a function is the set of inputs to the function that produce valid outputs.
Some functions have different definitions for different intervals of their domains; this type of function is called a piecewise function.
Occasionally the Math IC will present you with a question in which the domain of a function is restricted to a given interval, and you are asked to find the range of the newly restricted function.

The result in the spatial domain is equivalent to that of a smoothing filter; as the blocked high frequencies correspond to sharp intensity changes, i.e.
We obtain the filter function of a bandpass by multiplying the filter functions of a lowpass and of a highpass in the frequency domain, where the cut-off frequency of the lowpass is higher than that of the highpass.
To perform the frequency filtering we transform both the image of the house and the mask into the Fourier domain where we multiply the two images with the effect that the frequencies occurring in the mask remain in the output while the others are set to zero.

 Function domain   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
In mathematics, given a function f: A → B, the set A is called the domain, or domain of definition of f.
A well-defined function must map every element of the domain to an element of its codomain.
It is thus not a function on the set R of real numbers; R can't be its domain.

The domain of a function is the set of inputs (x values) for which the function is defined.
A function is therefore undefined for all the values of x for which division by zero occurs.
The domain, which is all the valid values of x in the function, is the x-axis, while the range, all the values of f(x), is the y-axis.

Definition: Let f be a one-to-one function with domain D and range R. A function g with domain R and range D is the inverse function of f, provided the following condition is true for every x in D and every y in R: y=f(x) if and only if x=g(y).

In code generation domains, an important feature of the HOF stars is that they add no run-time overhead at all, since they self-destruct before code generation begins, and therefore do not appear in any form in the generated code.
In functional languages, there is no syntactic difference between a function argument that is a data value, one that is a stream (an infinite sequence of data values), and one that is a function.
Although in principle such higher-order functions can be designed in Ptolemy, their behavior would not be independent of their domain, so the HOF domain would be the wrong place for them.
