Definition #68805 - Preferred [edit]
selma'o VUhU
definition unary mekso operator: natural exponentiation operator exp, where exp(a) = eaa.
notes Approximately equivalent to "se te'a te'o" possibly with ma'o included somewhere. This is mostly useful for abbreviation and for being careful in distinguishing functions from numbers (since ex is a number and not a function; this word is e# using Wolfram notation). For example: Let D be the differentiation operator with respect to the first variable of its argument. Then D(ex) = 0 at best, strictly speaking, because x must be just a number and so the differentiand is a constant (in fact and at worst, it may not even be a function, in which case the derivative is not even defined); we accept this notation to mean something else (which will be shown momentarily) because few other notations are convenient. However, what we really mean, and what this word facilitates, is: D(exp) = exp; this is true because the differentiand is a differentiable (and special) function. This word is related to te'a in a fashion analgpus to the ordered relation between fa'i (resp. va'a) and fi'u (resp. vu'u). The domain and codomain sets are purposefully vague.
