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, ... .
