Let $S$ be a set.

Let $\struct {T, \circ}$ be an algebraic structure.

Let $T^S$ be the set of all mappings from $S$ to $T$.

Let $f, g \in T^S$, that is, let $f: S \to T$ and $g: S \to T$ be mappings.

Then the operation $f \oplus g$ is defined on $T^S$ as follows:

$f \oplus g: S \to T: \forall x \in S: \map {\paren {f \oplus g} } x = \map f x \circ \map g x$

The operation $\oplus$ is called the pointwise operation on $T^S$ induced by $\circ$.

### Induced Structure

The algebraic structure $\struct {T^S, \oplus}$ is called the algebraic structure on $T^S$ induced by $\circ$.
