Now replace C, the domain of [square root of z], with the curve/surface [summation], and f (z) = [square root of z] with the coordinate w, viewed as a single-valued function on [summation].
It is a single-valued function of location, continuous at a boundary, what is favourable to numerical modelling.
The study is qualitative in that it reports on these teacher trainees' mental constructions of the concept of continuity of single-valued functions, obtained from analysis of their responses to structured activity sheets.
