Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • 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

  • Characteristic polynomial of a square matrix A

    det(xIn - A), where A is an n x n matrix

  • Closed interval

    An interval that includes its endpoints

  • Coefficient of determination

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

  • Constant function (on an interval)

    ƒ(x 1) = ƒ(x 2) x for any x1 and x2 (in the interval)

  • Decreasing on an interval

    A function f is decreasing on an interval I if, for any two points in I, a positive change in x results in a negative change in ƒ(x)

  • Difference identity

    An identity involving a trigonometric function of u - v

  • Directed distance

    See Polar coordinates.

  • Linear regression

    A procedure for finding the straight line that is the best fit for the data

  • Linear system

    A system of linear equations

  • Obtuse triangle

    A triangle in which one angle is greater than 90°.

  • 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).

  • Positive linear correlation

    See Linear correlation.

  • Series

    A finite or infinite sum of terms.

  • Standard form of a complex number

    a + bi, where a and b are real numbers

  • Standard representation of a vector

    A representative arrow with its initial point at the origin

  • Stem

    The initial digit or digits of a number in a stemplot.

  • Upper bound for ƒ

    Any number B for which ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of ƒ.

  • Vertex of a parabola

    The point of intersection of a parabola and its line of symmetry.

  • y-coordinate

    The directed distance from the x-axis xz-plane to a point in a plane (space), or the second number in an ordered pair (triple), pp. 12, 629.
