Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Complex conjugates

    Complex numbers a + bi and a - bi

  • Conditional probability

    The probability of an event A given that an event B has already occurred

  • Determinant

    A number that is associated with a square matrix

  • Directed distance

    See Polar coordinates.

  • Equal complex numbers

    Complex numbers whose real parts are equal and whose imaginary parts are equal.

  • Exponential decay function

    Decay modeled by ƒ(x) = a ? bx, a > 0 with 0 < b < 1.

  • Exponential growth function

    Growth modeled by ƒ(x) = a ? b a > 0, b > 1 .

  • Independent variable

    Variable representing the domain value of a function (usually x).

  • Logarithm

    An expression of the form logb x (see Logarithmic function)

  • Minute

    Angle measure equal to 1/60 of a degree.

  • nth power of a

    The number with n factors of a , where n is the exponent and a is the base.

  • Polynomial in x

    An expression that can be written in the form an x n + an-1x n-1 + Á + a1x + a0, where n is a nonnegative integer, the coefficients are real numbers, and an ? 0. The degree of the polynomial is n, the leading coefficient is an, the leading term is anxn, and the constant term is a0. (The number 0 is the zero polynomial)

  • Re-expression of data

    A transformation of a data set.

  • Slope-intercept form (of a line)

    y = mx + b

  • Solve by substitution

    Method for solving systems of linear equations.

  • Standard form of a polynomial function

    ƒ(x) = an x n + an-1x n-1 + Á + a1x + a0

  • Terms of a sequence

    The range elements of a sequence.

  • Unit vector

    Vector of length 1.

  • Upper bound for real zeros

    A number d is an upper bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) ? 0 whenever x > d.

  • y-intercept

    A point that lies on both the graph and the y-axis.
