Study Notes
Sets and Venn Diagrams
- Understanding of unions and intersections of sets using Venn diagrams.
- For set operations:
- A ∪ B ∪ C represents the union of sets A, B, and C.
- A ∩ B ∩ C represents the intersection of sets A, B, and C.
- A ∪ (B ∩ C) combines set A with the intersection of sets B and C.
Review Statements
- Evaluate statements as TRUE or FALSE based on set operations:
- Union and intersection require accurate representation of elements.
- Attention to the empty set's properties when multiplying sets.
Functions
- A function ( f: A \rightarrow B ) maps each element ( x \in A ) to exactly one element ( f(x) \in B ).
- Functions can have single or multiple elements from domain A mapping to elements in codomain B.
Sequences
- Finite Sequence: A sequence with a specific ending (e.g., 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 14).
- Infinite Sequence: A sequence that continues indefinitely, represented with ellipsis (e.g., 1, 1/2, 1/3, ...).
Examples of Sequences
- Geometric Progression: Each term after the first is generated by multiplying the previous term by a fixed number (common ratio). Example: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, with a common ratio ( r = 2 ).
- Arithmetic Progression: Each term after the first is generated by adding a fixed number (common difference). Example: 11, 7, 3, -1, -5, with a common difference of 4.
Graphical Representations
- Functions can be visually represented through various methods, including:
- Venn diagrams to show set relations.
- Graphs to depict relationships between variables.
- Plots to illustrate data points in a coordinate system.
Terminology in Functions
- A mathematical notation ( f(a) = b ) indicates that when element ( a ) from set A is input into function ( f ), it gives output ( b ) in set B.
Basic Concepts of a Set
- Set B includes all even natural numbers (B = {x | x ∈ W, x = 2n}).
Power Set
- The power set of A = {1, 2, 3} consists of all possible subsets.
- P(A) = {{1, 2, 3}, {1, 2}, {1, 3}, {2, 3}, {1}, {2}, {3}, ⊘}.
Set Cardinality
- Number of elements in a set is known as its cardinality.
Subset Practice
- Universal set U = {1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13}.
- Subsets of U identified include:
- C = {1, 9, 5, 13},
- D = {5, 11, 1},
- E = {13, 7, 9, 11, 5, 3, 1}.
Universal Set
- The set of integers (C) serves as a universal set for other sets like even/odd natural numbers.
Number of Subsets
- A set with 5 elements contains 32 subsets (2^5).
- A set with cardinality 9 contains 512 subsets (2^9).
Functions Terminology
- Domain of function f: dom(f) = A.
- Co-domain of function f: B.
- Image of element a in A: f(a) = b.
- Preimage of b: a.
- Range of f: rng(f) is all images of elements from A.
Function Visualization
- Functions are visualized through diagrams like Venn diagrams or graph plots.
Function Operations
- Functions f and g can be added: (f + g)(x) = f(x) + g(x).
- Functions can be multiplied: (f × g)(x) = f(x) × g(x).
Function Composition
- Composition of functions: (f ○ g)(a) = f(g(a)).
- Order matters; generally, f ○ g ≠ g ○ f.
Inverse of a Function
- For bijections f: A → B, the inverse f⁻¹ exists such that f⁻¹(f(a)) = a.
Important Functions
- Floor function (⌊x⌋) returns the largest integer less than or equal to x.
- Ceiling function (⌈x⌉) returns the smallest integer greater than or equal to x.
Visualization of Floor & Ceiling Functions
- Real numbers round down to their floor and up to their ceiling.
- If x is an integer, then ⌊x⌋ = ⌈x⌉ = x.
Example Values
- ⌊-3.2⌋ = -4.
- ⌊1.5⌋ = 1.
- ⌈1.5⌉ = 2.
- ⌈2⌉ = 2.
Sets and Power Sets
- Set B consists of all even natural numbers defined by the formula B = {x | x ∈ W, x = 2n}.
- The power set P(A) of A = {1, 2, 3} includes all possible subsets: {{1,2,3}, {1,2}, {1,3}, {2,3}, {1}, {2}, {3}, ∅}.
Set Cardinality and Subsets
- Subset identification of universal set U = {1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13} shows valid subsets as C = {1, 9, 5, 13}, D = {5, 11, 1}, and E = {13, 7, 9, 11, 5, 3, 1}.
- A universal set among given options is the set of integers (option c), which contains all other types of numbers.
Calculating Subsets
- The number of subsets for a set with 5 elements is 2^5 = 32.
- For a set with 9 elements, the number of subsets is 2^9 = 512.
Floor and Ceiling Functions
- The floor function ⌊x⌋ returns the greatest integer less than or equal to x, while the ceiling function ⌈x⌉ returns the smallest integer greater than or equal to x.
- Example of floor function: ⌊-3.2⌋ = -4, ⌊1.5⌋ = 1.
- Example of ceiling function: ⌈1.5⌉ = 2, ⌈2⌉ = 2.
Sequence Definitions
- Finite sequence: A sequence with a last number. Example: 2, 4, 6.
- Infinite sequence: A sequence with no last number. Example: 1, 1/2, 1/3, and so on.
Types of Sequences
- Geometric sequence: Each term is multiplied by a constant (common ratio). Example: 1, 2, 4, 8 (common ratio r = 2).
- Arithmetic sequence: Each term is derived by adding a constant (common difference). Example: 11, 7, 3 (common difference = -4).
Recurrence Relations
- Recurrence relations define the next terms in sequences based on previous terms, as seen in the Fibonacci sequence.
Exercises on Sequences
- Identifying next terms from given sequences:
- 1, 6, 11, 16, … → 21.
- 1, 8, 27, 64, … → 125.
- 1, 3, 6, 10, … → 15.
- 20, 17, 13, 8, … → 2.
- 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, … → 11.
Zero-One Matrices
- Operations on zero-one matrices involve using Boolean algebra; addition is replaced by OR (∨), and multiplication by AND (∧).
- The matrix operations yield different results compared to standard arithmetic.
Inverse of a 2x2 Matrix
- To find the inverse of a matrix A defined as: [ A = \begin{pmatrix} a & b \ c & d \end{pmatrix} ] exchange elements of the main diagonal and change the signs of the off-diagonal elements then divide by the determinant.
