7.1 Functions Let A and B be two sets. A function from A to B is an assignment to each element a A to exactly one element f ( a ) B . If A = B , then f is called a function on A . If f is a function from A to B , we write f : A B . We call A the domain of f , and B the range . If a A is mapped to b B , we write a b , and b is called the image of a , and a is called a pre-image of b . Let S A . The image of S , denoted by f ( S ), is the set { f ( a ) : a S } .

Then the composition of f and g , written g ◦ f is the function g ◦ f : A → C such that g ◦ f ( a ) = g ( f ( a )) , ∀ a ∈ A. The inverse of a bijection f : A → B is the function f-1 : B → A such that f-1 ◦ f is the identity function on A . The graph of a function f : A → B is the set { ( a, f ( a )) : a ∈ A } .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
