Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Conic section (or conic)

A curve obtained by intersecting a double-napped right circular cone with a plane

• Direction vector for a line

A vector in the direction of a line in three-dimensional space

• Elementary row operations

The following three row operations: Multiply all elements of a row by a nonzero constant; interchange two rows; and add a multiple of one row to another row

• Function

A relation that associates each value in the domain with exactly one value in the range.

• Graph of a relation

The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the ordered pairs of the relation.

• Horizontal line

y = b.

• Inverse cotangent function

The function y = cot-1 x

• Jump discontinuity at x a

limx:a - ƒ1x2 and limx:a + ƒ1x2 exist but are not equal

See Polynomial function in x.

• Limit

limx:aƒ1x2 = L means that ƒ(x) gets arbitrarily close to L as x gets arbitrarily close (but not equal) to a

• Mapping

A function viewed as a mapping of the elements of the domain onto the elements of the range

• Parabola

The graph of a quadratic function, or the set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed point (the focus) and a fixed line (the directrix).

• Periodic function

A function ƒ for which there is a positive number c such that for every value t in the domain of ƒ. The smallest such number c is the period of the function.

• Rational function

Function of the form ƒ(x)/g(x) where ƒ(x) and g(x) are polynomials and g(x) is not the zero polynomial.

• Resistant measure

A statistical measure that does not change much in response to outliers.

• Speed

The magnitude of the velocity vector, given by distance/time.

• Supply curve

p = ƒ(x), where x represents production and p represents price

• Time plot

A line graph in which time is measured on the horizontal axis.

• Trigonometric form of a complex number

r(cos ? + i sin ?)

• Variance

The square of the standard deviation.
