    Hi abhishek.93! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    So a point function from the real numbers (R) is a curve, a point function from R2 is a surface, and so on. :wink:

    I wanted to find out what a "ponit" function was!

    An important example of a "point function" is the function that assigns, to every non-negative real number t, the point on the unit circle on a Cartesian coordinate system at distance t around the circumference of the circle, counterclockwise or if t< 0, the clockwise.
