In this example, if you input a natural number (the x-value), you get back a real number (the y-value).- one-to-one means f ( x ) = f ( y ) if and only if x = y .- onto means that if y ∈ codomain then ∃ x ∈ domain such that f ( x ) = y . e.g. Consider g : R → R , defined by g ( x ) = e x . This function is not onto, because we can take a y-value from the codomain ( R ), say y =- 2 for example, and there is no x-value from the domain ( R ) that satisfies e x =- 2. In contrast, if we have h : R → R + , defined by h ( x ) = e x , this function is onto, because for any y-value from the codomain ( R + ), we can find a corresponding x-value from the domain ( R ) that satifies e x = y .- If a function is one-to-one and onto, it is invertible. • Hyperbolic and Inverse Hyperbolic Functions- cosh x = e x + e- x 2 and sinh x = e x- e- x 2- cosh is an even function, while sinh and tanh are odd functions.- tanh x = sinh x cosh x , coth x = cosh x sinh x , sech x = 1 cosh x , cosech x = 1 sinh x- Osborne’s Rule Replace trig functions with hyperbolic functions, and change the sign of a product of sines or implied product of sines (e.g. tan 2 x ). e.g. cos 2 x + sin 2 x = 1 becomes cosh 2 x- sinh 2 x = 1....
