Week 1

1. The definition of a function. f:X-->Y is called a function if f(x) is uniquely determined. X is called the domain of the definition and Y is called the range.

2. Introduce some basic types of functions.

3. Define the inverse of a function. Let f: X--> range(f) be one-to-one. Then there exists a unique function, f^{-1}: range(f)-->X, such that f^{-1}(f(x))=x for all x in X and f(f^{-1}(y))=y for all y in range(f). f^{-1} is called the inverse of f.

4. If a function f:X-->Y is not one-to-one or onto, one may be able to modify (shrink) the domain X or the range Y such that on smaller X or Y, the function f is one-to-one and onto. With such modification, we find define the inverse of f. Read what we did for sinx and cosx.
