DomainSets.jl is a package designed to represent simple infinite sets, that can be used to encode domains of functions. For example, the domain of the function log(x::Float64) is the infinite open interval, which is represented by the type HalfLine{Float64}().



DomainSets.jl uses IntervalSets.jl for closed and open intervals.


Rectangles can be constructed as a product of intervals, where the elements of the domain are SVector{2}:

julia> using DomainSets, StaticArrays; using DomainSets: ×

julia> SVector(1,2) in (-1..1) × (0..3)

Circles and Spheres

A EuclideanUnitSphere{N,T} contains x::SVector{N,T} if norm(x) == one(T). UnitCircle and UnitSphere are two important cases:

julia> SVector(1,0) in UnitCircle()

julia> SVector(1,0,0) in UnitSphere()

Disks and Balls

A EuclideanUnitBall{N,T} contains x::SVector{N,T} if norm(x) ≤ one(T). UnitDisk and UnitBall are two important cases:

julia> SVector(0.1,0.2) in UnitDisk()

julia> SVector(0.1,0.2,0.3) in UnitBall()

Domains with variable length Vector elements

Domains with Vector elements may have an arbitrary dimension. Several of the examples above have analogues for Vector elements:

julia> [0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.2, 0.1] in VectorUnitBall(5)
julia> [1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0] in VectorUnitSphere(10)

Product domains with elements of type Vector, rather than SVector{N}, may be created by invoking ProductDomain with a vector of domains:

julia> 1:5 in ProductDomain([0..i for i in 1:5])

Union, intersection, and setdiff of domains

Domains can be unioned and intersected together:

julia> d = UnitCircle()  2UnitCircle();

julia> in.([SVector(1,0),SVector(0,2), SVector(1.5,1.5)], Ref(d))
3-element BitArray{1}:

julia> d = UnitCircle()  (2UnitCircle() .+ SVector(1.0,0.0))
the intersection of 2 domains:
	1.	: the unit circle
	2.	: A mapped domain based on the unit circle

julia> SVector(1,0) in d

julia> SVector(-1,0) in d

The domain interface

A domain is any type that implements the functions eltype and in. If d is an instance of a type that implements the domain interface, then the domain consists of all x that is an eltype(d) such that x in d returns true.

Domains often represent continuous mathematical domains, for example, a domain d representing the interval [0,1] would have eltype(d) == Int but still have 0.2 in d return true.

The Domain type

DomainSets.jl contains an abstract type Domain{T}. All subtypes of Domain{T} must implement the domain interface, and in addition support convert(Domain{T}, d).
