Let $f$ be a real function.

Then $f$ is strictly increasing if and only if:

$x < y \implies \map f x < \map f y$

Also known as

Some sources refer to this as an increasing real function, and use the term non-decreasing real function for what on $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ is called an increasing real function.

Some sources give it as a strictly monotonic increasing function
