[CAS] find domain for function?
Hello,
is there a function / command to find the domain, for whitch a function is defined? Examples: f(x) = x/(x1) should result in x<>1 f(x) = ln(x) should result in x > 0 regards Wolfgang

Just bring it on top again!
@parisse: Is there no such command? regards Wolfgang

There is not. He feels it is not a useful thing to have.

A graph would serve the same purpose as such a command, and would be more useful from a pedagogical point of view.

RE: [CAS] find domain for function?
BTW, The 50G has TABVAR, which returns the domain and poles for some functions (reducible to a rational expression), but I never found that particularly useful either. Easier to just graph the function!

Xcas has the singular function, it does not return exactly the domain (for example singular(ln(x)) returns [0]), but it gives some informations about.

RE: [CAS] find domain for function?
As for polynomials functions there is no problem, their domain is R.
For fractional functions 1/f(x) we can solve f(x)=0 and the roots are the ones to be excluded from R. For irrational functions sqrt(f(x)), solving f(x)>=0 is enough. In many cases in order to find the domain of a function we need to set a system: y=sqrt(log(x^28*x+8)), solve({x^28*x+8>0,log(x^28*x+8)>=0}) and that's all !!! Domain found !!!!! Algebraically, not graphically B) ^_^ Best, Aries ;)

RE: [CAS] find domain for function?
Perhaps with past release of firmware, it could not do so.
With the latest release (2018 10 16), I found domain command which can be used to find domain: For example, to find domain of f(x) = 1/(x1), simply use: domain(1/(x1),x) it will return x<>1 I'm just thinking howto find range of this function. Perhaps the following command can help: domain(solve(y=1/(x1),x),y) it will return y<>0

RE: [CAS] find domain for function?
Not all functions are invertible in their domain, y=x^2 is noninvertible in its domain.
What if f(x) is noninvertible ? A function f is invertible if and only if it's injective, that is whenever f(x)=f(y), x=y. In certain cases restricting domain of f(x) could make it invertible. Best, Aries

RE: [CAS] find domain for function?
@ Aries
You can use domain(solve(y=x^2,x),y). The calculator will give result y>=0 However, this may not work with implicit function e.g abs(x) + abs(y) = 4

RE: [CAS] find domain for function?
As for the image (range) of f it's supposed to work with implicit functions as well but I suggest drawing a sketch or looking for maximum and minimum of y or even analysing f.

hello,
Doesn't tabvar solve your problem? Cyrille Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.

RE: [CAS] find domain for function?
Well, of course it does

RE: [CAS] find domain for function?
tabvar is one of my favorite items on the HP 50g, and on the Prime!
