If A is a set, we denote by

The authors define the term

If

**Tensor Analysis on Manifolds**, by Bishop and Goldberg on page 6.The authors define the term

*power set*as follows_________________________________________

If A is a set, we denote by

*P*A the collection of all subsets of A,*P*A = {C| C is a subset of A}.*P*A is called the*power set*of A._________________________________________

The authors define the term

*power map*as follows_________________________________________

If

*f*: A -> B, the we define the*power map*of*f*,*f*:*P*A ->*P*B by*f*C = {*f**c|*

_________________________________________

What is confusing to me is that nowhere in the definition does the set B occur. What role does B have in the power map?

Thank you
