real-valued

EnglishEdit

AdjectiveEdit

real-valued (not comparable)

  1. (analysis, of a function) Having only real values: having as its codomain the set of real numbers or a subset thereof.

Usage notesEdit

  • Though logically it would seem that real-valued should contrast only with complex-valued, vector-valued, and so on, in practice it frequently also contrasts with integer-valued. (This may be seen as an example of Q-based narrowing.)
