Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Base

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

• Combinatorics

A branch of mathematics related to determining the number of elements of a set or the number of ways objects can be arranged or combined

• Distance (in Cartesian space)

The distance d(P, Q) between and P(x, y, z) and Q(x, y, z) or d(P, Q) ((x ) - x 2)2 + (y1 - y2)2 + (z 1 - z 2)2

• Dot product

The number found when the corresponding components of two vectors are multiplied and then summed

• Elementary row operations

The following three row operations: Multiply all elements of a row by a nonzero constant; interchange two rows; and add a multiple of one row to another row

• Focal axis

The line through the focus and perpendicular to the directrix of a conic.

• Instantaneous velocity

The instantaneous rate of change of a position function with respect to time, p. 737.

• Limaçon

A graph of a polar equation r = a b sin u or r = a b cos u with a > 0 b > 0

• Line of symmetry

A line over which a graph is the mirror image of itself

• Mathematical model

A mathematical structure that approximates phenomena for the purpose of studying or predicting their behavior

• NINT (ƒ(x), x, a, b)

A calculator approximation to ?ab ƒ(x)dx

• nth power of a

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

• Second-degree equation in two variables

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

• Tangent

The function y = tan x

• Transitive property

If a = b and b = c , then a = c. Similar properties hold for the inequality symbols <, >, ?, ?.
