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.

  • Additive inverse of a complex number

    The opposite of a + bi, or -a - bi

  • Base

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

  • 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

  • Bounded

    A function is bounded if there are numbers b and B such that b ? ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of f.

  • Coefficient of determination

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

  • Complex number

    An expression a + bi, where a (the real part) and b (the imaginary part) are real numbers

  • Constant

    A letter or symbol that stands for a specific number,

  • Damping factor

    The factor Ae-a in an equation such as y = Ae-at cos bt

  • Degree of a polynomial (function)

    The largest exponent on the variable in any of the terms of the polynomial (function)

  • Eccentricity

    A nonnegative number that specifies how off-center the focus of a conic is

  • Equally likely outcomes

    Outcomes of an experiment that have the same probability of occurring.

  • Half-plane

    The graph of the linear inequality y ? ax + b, y > ax + b y ? ax + b, or y < ax + b.

  • Linear correlation

    A scatter plot with points clustered along a line. Correlation is positive if the slope is positive and negative if the slope is negative

  • Midpoint (on a number line)

    For the line segment with endpoints a and b, a + b2

  • Nautical mile

    Length of 1 minute of arc along the Earth’s equator.

  • Orthogonal vectors

    Two vectors u and v with u x v = 0.

  • Power rule of logarithms

    logb Rc = c logb R, R 7 0.

  • Reference triangle

    For an angle ? in standard position, a reference triangle is a triangle formed by the terminal side of angle ?, the x-axis, and a perpendicular dropped from a point on the terminal side to the x-axis. The angle in a reference triangle at the origin is the reference angle

  • Solve graphically

    Use a graphical method, including use of a hand sketch or use of a grapher. When appropriate, the approximate solution should be confirmed algebraically
