A function

$\displaystyle f: D\rightarrow \mathbb{R}\,,\quad x \mapsto f(x)

associates each argument $ x$ in the domain $ D \subseteq \mathbb{R}$ to a value $ f(x)$ in the range $ W \subseteq\mathbb{R}$ .

The graph of $ f$ consists of all pairs $ (x,y)$ with $ y=f(x)$ .

As the illustration shows, domain (colored in light-grey) and range (colored in dark-grey) simply are the graph's projections onto the $ x$ - and $ y$ -axis respectively.
