Tool to calculate the domain of definition of a function f(x): the set of values x which exists through f.

## Answers to Questions

### How to calculate the domain of definition of a function?

To calculate the definition set of a function in $$\mathbb{R} = ]-\infty ; +\infty [$$ look at the values for which the function is not defined. I.e, the values of $$x$$ such as ($$f(x)$$ do not exists. There are generally 3 main cases of undefined values (for real functions):

- division by $$0$$ (null denominator), since $$0$$ has no inverse

- negative square root: $$\sqrt{x}$$ is defined only for $$x \ge 0$$

- negative logarithm: $$\log(x)$$ is defined only for $$x > 0$$

dCode will compute and check the values without inverse by the function $$f$$ and return the corresponding interval for the domain of the function.

Example: Consider $$f(x) = \sqrt{1-2x}$$, since a root can not be negative, calculate the values such that $$1-2x \ge 0 \iff x \le 1/2$$. Thus $$f(x)$$ exists if and only if $$x \le 1/2$$. The domain of definition can be written $$D = ]-\infty; 1/2]$$

### What is an antecedent?

Consider a function y = f (x) then the number y is called the image of x, and x is called an antecedent of y with the function f in the definition domain D.
