Hi,
This is a little different from most questions in that it's not something I want to solve, but rather hoping I could get a little clearer explanation on
what mapping is and why/when we use it?
I'm soon to go over conformal maps, but I don't think i understand anything to do with mapping as of yet. If someone could break it down in english, backed with some mathematic intuition that would be so very helpful, because mathematical jargon just confuses me, and that's all textbooks seem to use.
I have added two images.
The one with the domain and range, I'm assuming is just saying that a specific value in the domain corresponds to a specific value in the range. Is this the essence of mapping?
as for the other image, What is being referred to by W when it says W $\subset C$
I know C is referring to the complex plane. I am not sure what this information is telling me. could someone give me an example of a function where W is a subset of the complex plane, and when W isn't? (After having defined what W is )
Thank you! you're always so much help mhb
