Understanding Notation?

  • #1
I've been looking around a few places to try to understand some notation. I'm not sure exactly what to call it(set notation?) but basically things like g: [a, b] → R and stuff like that. I think it means something like g is defined on [a,b] in the real numbers, but is there a resource I can use to learn this type of notation?

Hi RM:

I think your interpretation of the example is correct. However, the → might mean into rather than onto.

Unfortunately, notations have changed since I learned them, and I can't suggest any references.

Good luck.

Regards,
Buzz

Thanks. I ended up finding the information in an intro to real analysis, which looks like it has everything I need.
