A pair of region and coordinate assignment is called a chart. The region in the chart of Cartesian coordinates in the plane is the whole plane. And the region in the chart for the system of polar coordinates is the plane punctured at the chosen origin of the system. The inverse of a coordinate function will certainly take us from the coordinates to the points on the manifold represented by those coordinates. Let us call them inverse coordinate functions. e the number of components needed to represent their points in the manner prescribed.
