xorxes: <You didn't like my way of handling functions, because I use {makau}. In this case I would say {le du'u makau du li pa}. More interesting functions will use {ce'u} for the independent variable, so {le du'u makau sinso ce'u} (literally "what its sine is", would be the sine function. For example: fancu li pai li no le du'u makau sinso ce'u Pi is mapped to 0 by what its sine is.> A problem with {le du'u makau du li pa} is that 1, as a function, typically has no domain (well, its domain is the empty set) and its range is singleton 1 (of course). So, the {makau} never gets relieved strictly speaking. Or is always already relieved and so should not appear. How does a more normal polynomial go? By the way, the use of {sinso} reminds us why we need names for functions -- call it {uizbangi} so we can say {ko'a uizbangi ko'e ko'i}. |
