It is not clear, at least to me, whether you use Mathematica. Since this 
newsgroup is dedicated to Mathematica, software made and published  by 
Wolfram Research, Inc., I shall assume that you are using it and show 
you an example written in Mathematica.

Here, I believe you are talking about a *surjective* function from a 
subset of Z to another subset of Z.

Assuming I have correctly understood all your requirements, the 
following function should fit your needs.

In[22]:= f[x_Integer] = Mod[x, 2, 1];
f /@ Range[2, 8, 2] // Union

Out[23]= {2}
