**1.1 Overview****1.1.1 Relation**

A relation R from a non-empty set A to a non empty set B is a subset of the Cartesian product A × B. The set of all first elements of the ordered pairs in a relation R from a set A to a set B is called the domain of the relation R. The set of all second elements in a relation R from a set A to a set B is called the range of the relation R. The whole set B is called the codomain of the relation R. Note that range is always a subset of codomain.

**1.1.2 Types of Relations**

A relation R in a set A is subset of A × A. Thus empty set φ and A × A are two extreme relations.

(i) A relation R in a set A is called empty relation, if no element of A is related to any element of A, i.e., R = φ ⊂ A × A.

(ii) A relation R in a set A is called universal relation, if each element of A is related to every element of A, i.e., R = A × A.

(iii) A relation R in A is said to be reflexive if aRa for all a∈A, R is symmetric if aRb ⇒ bRa, ∀ a, b ∈ A and it is said to be transitive if aRb and bRc ⇒ aRc ∀ a, b, c ∈ A. Any relation which is reflexive, symmetric and transitive is called an equivalence relation.

**Note:** An important property of an equivalence relation is that it divides the set into pairwise disjoint subsets called equivalent classes whose collection is called a partition of the set. Note that the union of all equivalence classes gives the whole set.

**1.1.3 Types of Functions**

(i) A function f : X → Y is defined to be one-one (or injective), if the images of distinct elements of X under f are distinct i.e.,

(ii) A function f : X → Y is said to be onto (or surjective), if every element of Y is the image of some element of X under f, i.e., for every y ∈ Y there exists an element x ∈ X such that f (x) = y.

(iii) A function f : X → Y is said to be one-one and onto (or bijective), if f is both one- one and onto.

**1.1.4 Composition of Functions**

(i) Let f : A → B and g : B → C be two functions. Then, the composition of f and g, denoted by g o f, is defined as the function g o f : A → C given by g o f (x) = g (f (x)), ∀ x ∈ A.

(ii) If f : A → B and g : B → C are one-one, then g o f : A → C is also one-one

(iii) If f : A → B and g : B → C are onto, then g o f : A → C is also onto. However, converse of above stated results (ii) and (iii) need not be true. Moreover, we have the following results in this direction.

(iv) Let f : A → B and g : B → C be the given functions such that g o f is one-one. Then f is one-one.

(v) Let f : A → B and g : B → C be the given functions such that g o f is onto. Then g is onto

**1.1.5 Invertible Function**

**1.1.6 Binary Operations**

(i) A binary operation * on a set A is a function * : A × A → A. We denote * (a, b) by a * b.

(ii) A binary operation * on the set X is called commutative, if a * b = b * a for every a, b ∈ X.

(iii) A binary operation * : A × A → A is said to be associative if (a * b) * c = a * (b * c), for every a, b, c ∈ A.

(iv) Given a binary operation * : A × A → A, an element e ∈ A, if it exists, is called identity for the operation *, if a * e = a = e * a, ∀ a ∈ A.

(v) Given a binary operation * : A × A → A, with the identity element e in A, an element a ∈ A, is said to be invertible with respect to the operation *, if there exists an element b in A such that a * b = e = b * a and b is called the inverse of a and is denoted by a^{-1} .
