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.
Since every function is surjective when its codomain is restricted to its range, every injection induces a bijection onto its range.

 Surjection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, a function f is said to be surjective if and only if its values span its whole codomain; that is, for every y in the codomain, there is at least one x in the domain such that f(x) = y.
This decomposition is unique up to isomorphism, and f may be thought of as a function with the same values as h but with its codomain restricted to the range h(W) of h, which is only a subset of the codomain Z of h.
In the language of category theory, surjective functions are precisely the epimorphisms in the category of sets.

An injective function need not be surjective (not all elements of the codomain may be associated with arguments), and a surjective function need not be injective (some images may be associated with more than one argument).
More precisely, every surjection f : A → B can be factored as a projection followed by a bijection as follows.
Bijective composition: the first function need not be surjective and the second function need not be injective.

An injection maps distinct arguments to distinct images, a surjection maps to all possible images and a bijection is simply a function that is both an injection and a surjection.
A surjection, surjective function or onto function is a function which maps to all possible images.
The composition of two surjections is again a surjection, but if the composition of two functions is a surjection, then it can only be concluded that the second applied is surjective.

We restate the definitions of injection, surjection, and bijection using function notation: Definition: A function (A,f,B) is an injection iff (Axy E A.(f(x) = f(y) -> x = y)) An injection is also said to be ``one-to-one''.
Definition: A function (A,f,B) is a surjection iff (Ay E B.(Ex E A.(y = f(x)))) A surjection is also said to be ``onto''.
Definition: A function (A,f,B) is said to be a bijection iff it is both an injection and a surjection.

In mathematics, injections, surjections and bijections are classes of functions distinguished by the manner in which arguments (input expressions) and images (output expressions) are related.
Since trivially every function is surjective when its codomain is restricted to its range, every injection is actually a bijection to its range and thus there exists an inverse from its range to its domain.
A surjection, surjective function or onto function is a function which maps at least one argument to every possible image.

An important observation about surjective functions is that a surjection from A to B means that the cardinality of A must be no smaller than the cardinality of B
Since an injection means that A and a surjection means that A >= B, a bijection means that A Some functions are neither injective nor surjective.
This function is an injection because every element in A maps to a different element in B. It is not a surjection because some elements in B aren't mapped to by the function.

 Talk:Codomain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While f and g have the same effect on a given number, they are not, in the modern view, the same function since they have different codomains.
The codomain can affect whether or not the function is a surjection; in our example, g is a surjection while f is not.
No doubt this is very confusing for those who are meeting functions for the first time; also I know of no use for the surjection concept (although I still have to read that article).

 Set Theory :: 3DSoftware.com
In surjection (onto mapping) every element in the second set is mapped from at least one element of the first set.
In surjective mapping, the cardinality of the second set is always less than or equal to the cardinality of the first set.
On the other hand, with surjection (which is called “onto” mapping instead of “into” mapping), all of the elements are “forced onto” (imposed on) all the elements of the other set.

It is reasonable to expect that f should be in the image of OE* as long as OE is surjective in the dimensions that are relevant to f.
Even better, if OE is surjective in rational cohomology only in dimension G(f) then f is in the image of OE*, at least up to a certain indeterminacy which doesn't contain f.
Since g* induces a surjection in k-dimensional rational cohomology,Qthere is a phantom map f0 ~k+1 f such that f0 2 g*(Ph(Q Sk+1; Y)).

The empty set is in the powerset of any set (including itself) because the empty set is a subset of every set.
Yes - A (the empty set) is a member of P(X), but it is not in the image of f - hence f is not a surjection.

This assignment is a mapping from the set of natural numbers to the set C, and since no element of C is omitted, the mapping is a surjection.
No, all we need is a surjection and it is alright for elements in the codomain to be hit more than once in a surjection.
It is an injection because no binary representation corresponds to more than one subset of the naturals, and it is a surjection because every binary represenation corresponds to some set of the naturals.
