A mapping M: D &rarr R specifies a correspondence between elements of a domain D and a range R.

If each element of D maps to a single element of R, the mapping is one-to-one or injective .

If every element of R is mapped to by some element of D, the mapping is onto or surjective .

A mapping that is both one-to-one and onto is bijective.
