 Function (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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.
As a mathematical term, "function" was coined by Gottfried Leibniz in 1694, to describe a quantity related to a curve, such as a curve's slope at a specific point of a curve.
For this type of function, one can talk about limits and derivatives; both are measurements of the output or the change in the output as it depends on the input or the change in the input.

 FUNCTION - LoveToKnow Article on FUNCTION
The function may be given by specifying the domain of the argument and the rule of calculation, or else the function may have to be determined in accordance with certain conditions; for example, it may have to satisfy in a prescribed domain an assigned differential equation.
Functions of Several Variables.A function of several variables differs from a function of one variable in that the argument of the function consists of a set of variables, or is a variable point in.
A function which has a finite differential coefficient at all points of an interval is continuous throughout the interval, but if the differential coefficient becomes infinite at a point of the interval the function may or may not be continuous throughout the interval; on the other hand a function may be continuous without being differentiable.

 Inverse Function Encyclopedia Article @ LandCompany.com
is also used for the (set valued) function associating to an element or a subset of the codomain, the inverse image of this subset (or element, seen as a singleton).
If f is a real-valued function, then for f to have a valid inverse, it must pass the horizontal line test, that is a horizontal line y = k placed on the graph of f must pass through f exactly once for all real k.
In mathematics, an inverse function is in simple terms a function which "does the reverse" of a given function.

 Function - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In fact, it is possible to realize the same function using different physical processes, and one process can be a carrier of multiple functions.
In language studies, the grammatical function of a word or phrase in a sentence.
For example, the main function of a clock, the presentation of time, can be realized by different physical processes, including atomic, electronic, and mechanical processes.

 Continuous Function Encyclopedia Article @ Encyclopedia.LocalColorArt.com
In mathematics, a continuous function is a function in which changes in the output can be kept arbitrarily small (or even zero) by limiting changes in the input.
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 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.

 Limit of A Function Encyclopedia Article @ LaunchBase.org
In this case, the function happens to be continuous and the value is defined at the point, so the limit is equal to the direct evaluation of the function.
In mathematics, the limit of a function is a fundamental concept in mathematical analysis.
Rather informally, to say that a function f has limit L at a point p, is to say that we can make the value of f as close to L as we want, by taking points close enough to p.

 Utility Function Encyclopedia Article @ aNewLow.com
If the value of the utility function were to be, for example, doubled, squared, or subjected to any other strictly monotonically increasing function, it would still describe the same preferences.
While preferences are the conventional foundation of microeconomics, it is convenient to represent preferences with a utility function and reason indirectly about preferences with utility functions.
The expected utility theorem says that a von Neumann-Morgenstern utility function exists if and only if the agent's preference relation on the space of simple lotteries satisfies four axioms: completeness, transitivity, convexity/continuity (also called the Archimedean property), and independence.

 Computable Function Encyclopedia Article @ ArtisticNudity.com
The notion of computability of a function can be relativized to an arbitrary set of natural numbers A, or equivalently to an arbitrary function f from the naturals to the naturals, by using Turing machines extended by an oracle for A or f.
According to the Church–Turing thesis, the class of computable functions is equivalent to the class of functions defined by recursive functions, lambda calculus, or Markov algorithms.
In computational complexity theory, the problem of determining the complexity of a computable function is known as a function problem.

 Function Definitions
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).
Definition (composite function): Let g be a function from a set A to a set B, and let f be a function from B to a set C.
For example, the rightmost function in the above figure is a bijection and its inverse is obtained by reversing the direction of each arrow.

It is an error to use function on a function name that does not denote a function in the lexical environment in which the function form appears.

If name is a function name, the functional definition of that name is that established by the innermost lexically enclosing flet, labels, or macrolet form, if there is one.

 A Proposal to add a Polymorphic Function Object Wrapper to the Standard Library
Function pointers in C and C++ are used in both user and library code to customize the behavior of components by substituting a user-supplied function for part of a computation.
Several function object wrappers (often referred to as "callbacks") have appeared with similar interfaces [1, 2, 10, 11], suggesting that this class template is appropriate for standardization.
Polymorphic function object wrappers may also be used in lieu of arbitrary function objects whose type is a template parameter, allowing a trivial switch from function templates to functions (with a corresponding size/speed tradeoff).

 Client-Side JavaScript Reference
All parameters are passed to functions by value; the value is passed to the function, but if the function changes the value of the parameter, this change is not reflected globally or in the calling function.
Thus, a called function can call its caller without knowing the name of the particular caller, provided it knows that all of its callers have the same form and fit, and that they will not call the called function again unconditionally (which would result in infinite recursion).
If a function is assigned to a variable, you can assign the variable to an event handler.

The inverse of a function, a mapping from the function's outputs to its inputs, may be a relation rather than another function.
Since a function must return the same value for each input and the input cannot change (since it has no arguments), it must always return the same value.

 Chapter 4. Boost.Function
It shares features with function pointers in that both define a call interface (e.g., a function taking two integer arguments and returning a floating-point value) through which some implementation can be called, and the implementation that is invoked may change throughout the course of the program.
Generally, any place in which a function pointer would be used to defer a call or make a callback, Boost.Function can be used instead to allow the user greater flexibility in the implementation of the target.
Targets can be any 'compatible' function object (or function pointer), meaning that the arguments to the interface designated by Boost.Function can be converted to the arguments of the target function object.
