[catalogued under 4. Formal Logic / F. Set Theory ST / 2. Mechanics of Set Theory / a. Symbols of ST]

Full Idea

We write F : A → B to indicate that A maps into B, that is, the domain of relating things is set A, and the things related to are all in B. If we add that F = B, then A maps 'onto' B.

Gist of Idea

We write F:A→B to indicate that A maps into B (the output of F on A is in B)
