Definition: Function
If [math]A [/math] and [math]B [/math] are sets, then a function from [math]A [/math] to [math]B [/math] (written [math]f : A \href{/cs2800/wiki/index.php/%E2%86%92}{→} B [/math]) is an unambiguous rule giving, for every input [math]x \href{/cs2800/wiki/index.php/%E2%88%88}{∈} A [/math], an output [math]f(x) \href{/cs2800/wiki/index.php/%E2%88%88}{∈} B [/math]. [math]A [/math] is called the domain of [math]f [/math]; [math]B [/math] is called the codomain.
