Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Convergence of a series

A series aqk=1 ak converges to a sum S if imn: q ank=1ak = S

• Deductive reasoning

The process of utilizing general information to prove a specific hypothesis

• Difference identity

An identity involving a trigonometric function of u - v

• Difference of complex numbers

(a + bi) - (c + di) = (a - c) + (b - d)i

• Discriminant

For the equation ax 2 + bx + c, the expression b2 - 4ac; for the equation Ax2 + Bxy + Cy2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0, the expression B2 - 4AC

• Empty set

A set with no elements

• Expanded form

The right side of u(v + w) = uv + uw.

• Focal width of a parabola

The length of the chord through the focus and perpendicular to the axis.

• Half-life

The amount of time required for half of a radioactive substance to decay.

• Limit at infinity

limx: qƒ1x2 = L means that ƒ1x2 gets arbitrarily close to L as x gets arbitrarily large; lim x:- q ƒ1x2 means that gets arbitrarily close to L as gets arbitrarily large

• Logarithm

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

• Magnitude of a vector

The magnitude of <a, b> is 2a2 + b2. The magnitude of <a, b, c> is 2a2 + b2 + c2

• Paraboloid of revolution

A surface generated by rotating a parabola about its line of symmetry.

• Parametric equations

Equations of the form x = ƒ(t) and y = g(t) for all t in an interval I. The variable t is the parameter and I is the parameter interval.

• Probability function

A function P that assigns a real number to each outcome O in a sample space satisfying: 0 … P1O2 … 1, P12 = 0, and the sum of the probabilities of all outcomes is 1.

• Sum of a finite arithmetic series

Sn = na a1 + a2 2 b = n 2 32a1 + 1n - 12d4,

• Summation notation

The series a nk=1ak, where n is a natural number ( or ?) is in summation notation and is read "the sum of ak from k = 1 to n(or infinity).” k is the index of summation, and ak is the kth term of the series

A graph in which (x, -y) is on the graph whenever (x, y) is; or a graph in which (r, -?) or (-r, ?, -?) is on the graph whenever (r, ?) is

• Venn diagram

A visualization of the relationships among events within a sample space.

• Zero of a function

A value in the domain of a function that makes the function value zero.
