Haven't seen it written like that on the RHS, but yes I don't see why it would be different.

Agreed, hence my comment about not seeing it before, but would be my go-to 'assumption' without any context - hopefully it is not a notation that is used in his textbooks/course.

The fact that the LHS is explictly saying x is the argument to f_1 seems counter to interpreting it to equal the RHS.

I would basically hate to put money on any interpretation of this (including what the OP actually thinks either side means) without more context.
