# Project defined functions

Is it possible to define Project specific functions that all collaborators/students in the project can call as if it were globally defined?

I guess your question is referring to a CoCalc project. Then, it suffices to place the definition of the function in the file `.sage/init.sage`

in the home directory of the project.

You can do this, for instance, by clicking on `Files`

in the top menu bar, then click on the "eye" button on the top right (just at the left of the `Backups`

button). The subdirectory `.sage`

will then show up in the list; click on it and then click on `init.sage`

to open it. You can enter the code of the function there and save it.
As an example, if you type the following two lines in that file:

```
def f(x):
return x^2
```

the function `f`

will be available in any Sage session of the project.

why I get huge number in H-representation in sage?
