what is the precise definition of "parent functions" ?
I know that : f(x)=x ,f(x)=x^2 , f(x)=sqr(x) , f(x)=1/x , f(x)=x are parent functions but what about Rational functions? what is the parent function of the Rational functions ?

Do you perhaps mean functions that have not yet been integrated or derived?
Also, please don't type in all caps. It's giving me a headache.
