Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • artesian coordinate system

    An association between the points in a plane and ordered pairs of real numbers; or an association between the points in three-dimensional space and ordered triples of real numbers

  • Binomial probability

    In an experiment with two possible outcomes, the probability of one outcome occurring k times in n independent trials is P1E2 = n!k!1n - k2!pk11 - p) n-k where p is the probability of the outcome occurring once

  • Compounded annually

    See Compounded k times per year.

  • Convergence of a series

    A series aqk=1 ak converges to a sum S if imn: q ank=1ak = S

  • Difference identity

    An identity involving a trigonometric function of u - v

  • Eccentricity

    A nonnegative number that specifies how off-center the focus of a conic is

  • Empty set

    A set with no elements

  • Equal matrices

    Matrices that have the same order and equal corresponding elements.

  • Limit at infinity

    limx: qƒ1x2 = L means that ƒ1x2 gets arbitrarily close to L as x gets arbitrarily large; lim x:- q ƒ1x2 means that gets arbitrarily close to L as gets arbitrarily large

  • Parallelogram representation of vector addition

    Geometric representation of vector addition using the parallelogram determined by the position vectors.

  • PH

    The measure of acidity

  • Product of functions

    (ƒg)(x) = ƒ(x)g(x)

  • Quadratic equation in x

    An equation that can be written in the form ax 2 + bx + c = 01a ? 02

  • Quadratic function

    A function that can be written in the form ƒ(x) = ax 2 + bx + c, where a, b, and c are real numbers, and a ? 0.

  • Real number line

    A horizontal line that represents the set of real numbers.

  • Reflection across the y-axis

    x, y and (-x,y) are reflections of each other across the y-axis.

  • Resistant measure

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

  • Vertex of a cone

    See Right circular cone.

  • Vertical asymptote

    The line x = a is a vertical asymptote of the graph of the function ƒ if limx:a+ ƒ1x2 = q or lim x:a- ƒ1x2 = q.

  • Xscl

    The scale of the tick marks on the x-axis in a viewing window.
