Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • 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.

  • Categorical variable

    In statistics, a nonnumerical variable such as gender or hair color. Numerical variables like zip codes, in which the numbers have no quantitative significance, are also considered to be categorical.

  • Center

    The central point in a circle, ellipse, hyperbola, or sphere

  • Constant

    A letter or symbol that stands for a specific number,

  • Definite integral

    The definite integral of the function ƒ over [a,b] is Lbaƒ(x) dx = limn: q ani=1 ƒ(xi) ¢x provided the limit of the Riemann sums exists

  • Difference identity

    An identity involving a trigonometric function of u - v

  • Directed distance

    See Polar coordinates.

  • Ellipsoid of revolution

    A surface generated by rotating an ellipse about its major axis

  • Equation

    A statement of equality between two expressions.

  • Exponential form

    An equation written with exponents instead of logarithms.

  • Imaginary part of a complex number

    See Complex number.

  • Inverse of a matrix

    The inverse of a square matrix A, if it exists, is a matrix B, such that AB = BA = I , where I is an identity matrix.

  • Multiplicative identity for matrices

    See Identity matrix

  • nth root of unity

    A complex number v such that vn = 1

  • Parallelogram representation of vector addition

    Geometric representation of vector addition using the parallelogram determined by the position vectors.

  • Proportional

    See Power function

  • Real number line

    A horizontal line that represents the set of real numbers.

  • Second-degree equation in two variables

    Ax 2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0, where A, B, and C are not all zero.

  • Standard deviation

    A measure of how a data set is spread
