1 This is equivalent with saying that there is a surjective function function $$f:\mathbb N\mapsto D.$$ Some books define countability by requiring a bijective function between $D$ and $\mathbb N,$ but the above definition has the advantage that it is also applicable for a finite set $D.$ Thus, all finite sets are countable.
