Definition df-map 7719
Description: Define the mapping operation or set exponentiation. The set of all functions that map from 𝐵 to 𝐴 is written (𝐴𝑚 𝐵) (see mapval 7729). Many authors write 𝐴 followed by 𝐵 as a superscript for this operation and rely on context to avoid confusion other exponentiation operations (e.g., Definition 10.42 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 95). Other authors show 𝐵 as a prefixed superscript, which is read "𝐴 pre 𝐵 " (e.g., definition of [Enderton] p. 52). Definition 8.21 of [Eisenberg] p. 125 uses the notation Map(𝐵, 𝐴) for our (𝐴𝑚 𝐵). The up-arrow is used by Donald Knuth for iterated exponentiation (Science 194, 1235-1242, 1976). We adopt the first case of his notation (simple exponentiation) and subscript it with m to distinguish it from other kinds of exponentiation. (Contributed by NM, 8-Dec-2003.)
