Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Absolute maximum

A value ƒ(c) is an absolute maximum value of ƒ if ƒ(c) ? ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of ƒ.

• Algebraic expression

A combination of variables and constants involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, powers, and roots

• Base

See Exponential function, Logarithmic function, nth power of a.

• Center

The central point in a circle, ellipse, hyperbola, or sphere

• Coefficient of determination

The number r2 or R2 that measures how well a regression curve fits the data

• Combination

An arrangement of elements of a set, in which order is not important

• Confounding variable

A third variable that affects either of two variables being studied, making inferences about causation unreliable

• Cosecant

The function y = csc x

• Finite sequence

A function whose domain is the first n positive integers for some fixed integer n.

• Limaçon

A graph of a polar equation r = a b sin u or r = a b cos u with a > 0 b > 0

• Midpoint (in a coordinate plane)

For the line segment with endpoints (a,b) and (c,d), (aa + c2 ,b + d2)

• Multiplicity

The multiplicity of a zero c of a polynomial ƒ(x) of degree n > 0 is the number of times the factor (x - c) (x - z 2) Á (x - z n)

• Partial sums

See Sequence of partial sums.

• Real number

Any number that can be written as a decimal.

• Standard unit vectors

In the plane i = <1, 0> and j = <0,1>; in space i = <1,0,0>, j = <0,1,0> k = <0,0,1>

• Sum of a finite geometric series

Sn = a111 - r n 2 1 - r

• Sum of two vectors

<u1, u2> + <v1, v2> = <u1 + v1, u2 + v2> <u1 + v1, u2 + v2, u3 + v3>

• Vector equation for a line in space

The line through P0(x 0, y0, z0) in the direction of the nonzero vector V = <a, b, c> has vector equation r = r0 + tv , where r = <x,y,z>.

• Vertex form for a quadratic function

ƒ(x) = a(x - h)2 + k

• Whole numbers

The numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, ... .
