Ø with U

Principle of duality

States that if any equation E is an identity then its dual E* is also an identity.

Finite Set

The number of elements in A is denoted by |A|.

Otherwise, a set is infinite.

Function

A rule which assigns to each element of set A exactly one element of B.

Image (of x under f)

If x∈A, then the other unique element of B which f assigns to x is denoted by f(x).

Domain and Range

The set A is the domain of a function and B is the range.

One-to-one

When different elements of A are always assigned different images by f.

Permutation

Any arrangement of objects where order matters.

Combination

Any arrangement of objects where order doesn't matter.

Argand Diagram

Notes:

1 The complex conjugate numbers w and conj.w are reflections of each other in the real axis

2 The numbers w and -w are reflections of each other on the origin

3 The modulus |w| is the distance from the origin to the to the point P(a,b) or length of the vector representing w

More notes on Argand Diagrams:

4 The standard form w=a+ib is often called the Cartesian or rectangular form of the complex number because a and b are the Cartesian coordinates of the point P

5 Because of the correspondance with the Cartesian coordinates x and y, we often write z=x+iy when discussing argand complex numbers
