Definition: A function has period a, if the function values are repeated in intervals of width a:
f has period a : <=> f: R -> R /\ a in R /\ forall x in R: f(x+a) = f(x).
A function is periodic if it has some period:
f is periodic : <=> exists a in R: f has period a.
Example: f in previous example has period 1.
