Domain of Definition of a Function

Calculation of a Function's Domain of Definition





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

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 exists and those for which it does not exist, ie the values of $ x $ such that $ f(x) $ is not defined.

'From the equation of the function'

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: Take $ 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] $

'From the curve of the function'

It is a question of looking at the values for which the curve has no point. Either because there is a vertical asymptote, or because there is simply no value.

What does domains R+ or R- or R* means?

$ \mathbb{R} $ is the domain of real numbers

$ \mathbb{R^+} $ (R plus) is the domain of positive real numbers (0 included)

$ \mathbb{R^-} $ (R moins) is the domain of negative real numbers (0 included)

$ \mathbb{R^*} $ (R étoile) is the reals domain excluding the value 0.

$ \mathbb{R_+^*} $ (R étoile plus) is the domain of positive real numbers (0 exclus)

$ \mathbb{R_-^*} $ (R étoile moins) is the domain of negative real numbers (0 exclus)

What is an antecedent?

If 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.

What is the existence domain of a function?

The domain of existence and the domain of definition of a function are identical, it is the same concept.
