Inverse Image

• Let f be an invertible function from set A to set B. Let S be a subset of B. We define the inverse image of S to be the subset of A containing all pre-images of all elements of S.

• f-1(S) = {aA | f(a) S}

Let f be an invertible function from A to B. Let S be a subset of B. Show that f-1(S) = f-1(S)

What do we know?

f must be 1-to-1 and onto

Let f be an invertible function from A to B. Let S be a subset of B. Show that f-1(S) = f-1(S)

Proof: We must show that f-1(S)  f-1(S) and that f-1(S)  f-1(S) .

Let x  f-1(S). Then xA and f(x)  S. Since f(x)  S, x  f-1(S). Therefore x  f-1(S).

Now let x  f-1(S). Then x  f-1(S) which implies that f(x)  S. Therefore f(x)  S and x  f-1(S)

Let f be an invertible function from A to B. Let S be a subset of B. Show that f-1(S) = f-1(S)

Proof:

f-1(S) = {xA | f(x)  S} Set builder notation

= {xA | f(x)  S} Def of Complement

Floor and Ceiling Functions subset of B. Show that f

• The floor function assigns to the real number x the largest integer that is less than or equal to x. x

• x = n iff n  x < n+1, nZ

• x = n iff x-1 < n  x, nZ

• The ceiling function assigns to the real number x the smallest integer that is greater than or equal to x. x

• x = n iff n-1 < x  n, nZ

• x = n iff x  n < x+1, nZ

Examples subset of B. Show that f

0.5 = 1

0.5 = 0

-0.3 = 0

-0.3 = -1

6 = 6

6 = 6

-3.4 = -3

3.9 = 3

Prove that subset of B. Show that fx+m = x + m when m is an integer.

Proof: Assume that x = n, nZ.

Therefore n  x < n+1.

Next we add m to each term in the inequality to get n+m  x+m < n+m+1.

Therefore x+m = n+m = x + m

x = n iff n  x < n+1, nZ

n subset of B. Show that f

n+1

Let xR. Show that 2x = x + x+1/2

Proof: Let nZ such that x = n. Therefore

n  x < n+1. We will look at the two cases:

x  n + 1/2 and x < n + 1/2.

Case 1: x  n + 1/2

Then 2n+1  2x < 2n+2, so 2x = 2n+1

Also n+1  x + 1/2 < n+2, so x + 1/2  = n+1

2x = 2n+1 = n + n+1 = x + x+1/2

Let x subset of B. Show that fR. Show that 2x = x + x+1/2

Case 2: x < n + 1/2

Then 2n  2x < 2n+1, so 2x = 2n

Also n  x + 1/2 < n+1, so x + 1/2  = n

2x = 2n = n + n = x + x+1/2

Characteristic Function subset of B. Show that f

Let S be a subset of a universal set U. The characteristic function fS of S is the function from U to {0,1}such that fS(x) = 1 if xS and fS(x) = 0 if xS.

Example: Let U = Z and S = {2,4,6,8}.

fS(4) = 1

fS(10) = 0

Let A and B be sets. Show that for all x, subset of B. Show that ffAB(x) = fA(x)fB(x)

Proof: fAB(x) must equal either 0 or 1.

Suppose that fAB(x) = 1. Then x must be in the intersection of A and B. Since x AB, then xA and xB. Since xA, fA(x)=1 and since xB fB(x) = 1. Therefore fAB = fA(x)fB(x) = 1.

If fAB(x) = 0. Then x  AB. Since x is not in the intersection of A and B, either xA or xB or x is not in either A or B. If xA, then fA(x)=0. If xB, then fB(x) = 0. In either case fAB = fA(x)fB(x) = 0.

Let A and B be sets. Show that for all x, f subset of B. Show that fAB(x) = fA(x) + fB(x) - fA(x)fB(x)

Proof: fAB(x) must equal either 0 or 1.

Suppose that fAB(x) = 1. Then xA or xB or x is in both A and B. If x is in one set but not the other, then fA(x) + fB(x) - fA(x)fB(x)= 1+0+(1)(0) = 1. If x is in both A and B, then fA(x) + fB(x) - fA(x)fB(x) = 1+1 – (1)(1) = 1.

If fAB(x) = 0. Then xA and xB. Then fA(x) + fB(x) - fA(x)fB(x)= 0 + 0 – (0)(0) = 0.

Let A and B be sets. Show that for all x, f subset of B. Show that fAB(x) = fA(x) + fB(x) - fA(x)fB(x)
