Template:Function property


An even function is a function f defined on a subset of the reals satisfying the following two conditions:

  1. The domain of the function is symmetric about 0, i.e., for every x in the domain, -x is also in the domain.
  2. For every x in the domain, we have the equality:

\! f(-x) = f(x)
