Unformatted text preview: Chapter 4 Continuous functions 4.1 Concepts of continuity 4.1.1 Definitions Definition 4.1.1. 1 A function from a set D to a set R is a subset f D R for which each element d D appears in only one element ( d, ) f . Write f : D R . If ( x,y ) f , then we usually write f ( x ) = y . D is the domain of the function; the subset of R of elements x for which the function is defined. R is the range ; a subset of R which contains all the points f ( x ). Generally, assume R = R . Definition 4.1.2. A function is a rule of assignment x 7 f ( x ), where for each x in the domain, f ( x ) is a unique and well-defined element of the range. f ( x ) = y means f maps x D to f ( x ) R . Definition 4.1.3. The image of f is the subset Im f := { y R . . . x D,f ( x ) = y } R. The function f is surjective or onto iff Im f = R , that is, y R, x D,f ( x ) = y....
