    I am struggling with the notation/language of math.

    1. What does f: Z----> Z or f: A--->A or f: N--->N mean? Are these the set of integers, natural numbers or any set in general (it is not the complex set)?

    2. If I have:
    Let A = {n:n>2} f: A--->A followed by some function does this mean A is a set of n integers?

    Please give a clear, simple, explanation with some simple examples if possible.
