  Identity function - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An identity function f is a function which does not have any effect: it always returns the same value that was used as its argument.
is the identity element of the monoid of all functions from M to M.
The identity function on the positive integers is a completely multiplicative function (essentially multiplication by 1), considered in number theory.

 Bijection, injection and surjection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, injections, surjections and bijections are classes of functions distinguished by the manner in which arguments (input expressions from the domain) and images (output expressions from the codomain) are related or mapped to each other.
A function is surjective (onto) if every element of the codomain is mapped to by some element (argument) of the domain; some images may be mapped to by more than one argument.
A bijective function is a bijection (one-to-one correspondence).

This means that you choose which function to call, and how many arguments to give it, when you write the program.
It is common for Lisp functions to accept functions as arguments or find them in data structures (especially in hook variables and property lists) and call them using
Sometimes, when you call a functional, it is useful to supply a no-op function as the argument.

 @@IDENTITY crisis
Identity Seed is 1 by default, and so is the Identity Increment.
When a record is inserted into a table with a identity column, the function @@IDENTITY (or the global variable @@IDENTITY as in SQL Server 6.5) returns the last identity value that was inserted in the database.
I emphasize the word "last identity value" here because, this maybe different from the identity value of that particular table where the record was inserted.

 Function Composition   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Composition is the operation of taking the output from one function and using that as the input to a second function.
It, together with the algebraic operations on functions, is what allows us to take the basic building blocks of "pure" function types discussed in the Field Guide and build the large variety of functions which is the focus of calculus.

Identities are necessary in our database environment and we cannot distinguish one record from another unless there is uniqueness of each record, that we can identify and record.
As to be expected the functions features in SQL Server 2000 improve on those in the prior version — and it is worthwhile spending a moment or two reviewing what is now available for management of identities.
If you need artificial identities - and current practice is to build tables with artificial identities even if a natural identity is available - use the IDENTITY property, and manage and control the results with the wider range of functions.

A function f from set A to set B is a relationship between elements of A and elements of B where each element of A is related to a unique element of B.
These two properties must be held because the definition of function says that each element of A is sent to a unique element of B.
Suppose f is a function from A to B and an input a of A is given.

Although similar, the IDENTITY function is not the IDENTITY property that is used with CREATE TABLE and ALTER TABLE.
Valid data types for an identity column are any data types of the integer data type category (except for the bit data type), or decimal data type.
Because this function creates a column in a table, a name for the column must be specified in the select list in one of these ways:

It is called a constant function, because to every value of x there corresponds the same value of y: 3.
y = x is called the identity function, because the value of y is identical with that of x.
In the absolute value function, the negative values of y in the identity function are reflected into the positive side.

After inserting the rows in the database your DataTable does not automatically reflect the identity values of as assigned by the database.
You are correct that @@IDENTITY works, however Duncan pointed out that @@IDENTITY returns the last identity inserted, but that identity might not be what you expect.
People should think first of natural keys before going for identity columns for PK values, most of the time there is a unique attribute in the table which can function as a PK value perfectly.

One was to add a function Is_Null_Occurrence and the other was to define Exception_Identity to return Null_Id when applied to Null_Occurrence rather than raise Constraint_Error.

 The behavior of the IDENTITY function when used with SELECT INTO or INSERT .. SELECT queries that contain an ORDER BY ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
When you use a SELECT INTO query with the IDENTITY function and an ORDER BY clause, the identity values that are generated are not guaranteed to have the same order as the order that is provided by the ORDER BY clause.
The identity values that are generated depend on the position of the GetIdentity() function in the query tree (showplan), which may change due to optimizer changes, parallel query plans or the presence of TOP/SET ROWCOUNT.
However, the identity value generation occurs before the rows are sorted based on the ORDER BY clause.
