• Identity function

The function ƒ(x) = x.

• Inequality symbol or

<,>,<,>.

See Polynomial function in x

• Limit to growth

See Logistic growth function.

• Lower bound of f

Any number b for which b < ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of ƒ

• Midpoint (in Cartesian space)

• Order of magnitude (of n)

log n.

• Permutation

An arrangement of elements of a set, in which order is important.

• Reciprocal function

The function ƒ(x) = 1x

• Right angle

A 90° angle.

• RRAM

A Riemann sum approximation of the area under a curve ƒ(x) from x = a to x = b using x1 as the right-hand end point of each subinterval.

• Simple harmonic motion

Motion described by d = a sin wt or d = a cos wt

• Spiral of Archimedes
