We define covering and separation numbers for functions. We investigate their properties, and show that for some classes of functions there is exact equality between separation and covering numbers. We provide analogues for various geometric inequalities on covering numbers, such as volume bounds, bounds connected with Hadwiger’s conjecture, and inequalities about M-positions for geometric log-concave functions. In particular we get strong versions of M-positions for geometric log-concave functions.
