Solidity Function Signature

1. What is function signature?

Function signature is the part of bytes code which EVM decides to run in compiled smart contracts.

2. How it is calculated:

In this example, I use Remix IDE to compile the contract, take a look at the Compilation Details:
notion image
list(bytes32, uint256) is the function get called, with the hashed signature 345c550f
The hash is the first 8 bytes after 0x. It’s calculated through keccak256
Here is the transaction hash after we executed the function:
notion image
