The function f ( g ( t )) is said to be a composition of f with g . The function f ( g ( t )) is defined by using the output of the function g as the input to f . The function f ( g ( t )) is only defined for values in the domain of g whose g ( t ) values are in the domain of f . The function f ( g ( t )) is said to be a composition of f with g .
