- What is the general format for specifying recurring vertical asymptotes in periodic functions in set notation?

- Relevant Equations:
- -2pi < x < 2pi

Hi all,

What is the general set notation for specifying a vertical asymptote and domain for a periodic function? For example, if I have a periodic function which has a period of pi/2, and within that period, a vertical asymptote occurs at pi/4. The domain is R, excluding that vertical asymptote. I am presuming that I can specify it something like:

{ x: x ∈ R, x ≠ n⋅(pi/2)+(pi/4) }, where n is an integer.

Does this look correct, or completely off?

Thanks!
