Let $f: S \to T$ be a mapping.

Then a **fixed point** (or **fixed element**) **of $S$ under $f$** is an $x \in S$ such that $\map f x = x$.

The concept of a **fixed point** is usually encountered in the context of self-maps, that is, where $S = T$.

You can help $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ by adding this information.
