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

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 \( D = ]-\infty; 1/2] \)

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.
