Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aphelion

    The farthest point from the Sun in a planet’s orbit

  • Characteristic polynomial of a square matrix A

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

  • Common difference

    See Arithmetic sequence.

  • Conversion factor

    A ratio equal to 1, used for unit conversion

  • Cotangent

    The function y = cot x

  • Course

    See Bearing.

  • Deductive reasoning

    The process of utilizing general information to prove a specific hypothesis

  • Direction vector for a line

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

  • Identity

    An equation that is always true throughout its domain.

  • Length of a vector

    See Magnitude of a vector.

  • Logistic growth function

    A model of population growth: ƒ1x2 = c 1 + a # bx or ƒ1x2 = c1 + ae-kx, where a, b, c, and k are positive with b < 1. c is the limit to growth

  • Mathematical induction

    A process for proving that a statement is true for all natural numbers n by showing that it is true for n = 1 (the anchor) and that, if it is true for n = k, then it must be true for n = k + 1 (the inductive step)

  • Partial fraction decomposition

    See Partial fractions.

  • Placebo

    In an experimental study, an inactive treatment that is equivalent to the active treatment in every respect except for the factor about which an inference is to be made. Subjects in a blind experiment do not know if they have been given the active treatment or the placebo.

  • Pole

    See Polar coordinate system.

  • Quantitative variable

    A variable (in statistics) that takes on numerical values for a characteristic being measured.

  • Random numbers

    Numbers that can be used by researchers to simulate randomness in scientific studies (they are usually obtained from lengthy tables of decimal digits that have been generated by verifiably random natural phenomena).

  • RRAM

    A Riemann sum approximation of the area under a curve ƒ(x) from x = a to x = b using x1 as the right-hand end point of each subinterval.

  • Solve a triangle

    To find one or more unknown sides or angles of a triangle

  • Sum of an infinite series

    See Convergence of a series
