K-metric and K-normed spaces were introduced in the mid-20th century (see [2, 16, 24, 26]) by using an ordered Banach space instead of the set of real numbers, as the codomain for a metric.
Observe that (0,1] is a semi-open set in the codomain that contains f(1) = 1.
The function f(x) is nondecreasing and piecewise linear, and its codomain is [[l.
For instance, on a manifold M the set P(M) of (smooth) Moore paths [gamma] : [a, b] [right arrow] M, has the structure of a RSG with M the vertex set and [gamma](a), [gamma](b) defined to be the domain and codomain of [gamma] respectively.
We thus conclude that the codomain of [member of] of Definition 4.
To avoid this awkward situation we extend the codomain of primitive validation function to the set {0, 1, [epsilon]} and define validation function for each element of the complement of S' [intersection] D in S'.
In Putnam's portrait of the Thomist who has taken the linguistic turn, we are to think of the elements of sentences, subjects and predicates, as the domain, the world as the codomain, and formal identity ("metaphysical" if one is Thomistic, and "logical" if Wittgensteinian) as the mapping function.
