                        Exposition Style

As a pedagogical device for describing functions such as the one below

           |
           |                  +-----------------
           |                 /:
| / : | / : | / : | / :
           |            /     :
      -----+------------------------------------
           |                  a
           |

where two formulae, f1 and f2, are necessary for adjoining domains but the function is continous at the boundary point, I usually write the description in the form

f(x) = f1(x) for x =< a f(x) = f2(x) for x >= a

The astute reader will note that the domains overlap, but that f1(a) = f2(a), so no semantic ambiguity obtains.
