Re: What does f[x] mean when f is not a function?
The answer to your two questions is that they are "silly expressions". See Section 6.2 (page 67) of Specifying Systems.

In the TLA book on page 57, the definition for RdMiss(p) contains the formula:
buf[p].op = "Rd"
However, buf is function with domain Proc and range that includes
requests, values, and NoValue. So, buf[p] might not be a function with a
domain containing "op". It might not be a function at all.
I guess I have two questions:
What does f["op"] mean when "op" is not in the domain of the function, f?
What does f["op"] mean when f is not a function?
I'm looking specifically for what those things mean in TLA+ but a mathematical
context is more than welcome.
