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.

• Common difference

See Arithmetic sequence.

• Conic section (or conic)

A curve obtained by intersecting a double-napped right circular cone with a plane

• Conjugate axis of a hyperbola

The line segment of length 2b that is perpendicular to the focal axis and has the center of the hyperbola as its midpoint

• Decreasing on an interval

A function f is decreasing on an interval I if, for any two points in I, a positive change in x results in a negative change in ƒ(x)

• Deductive reasoning

The process of utilizing general information to prove a specific hypothesis

• Double inequality

A statement that describes a bounded interval, such as 3 ? x < 5

• Exponential form

An equation written with exponents instead of logarithms.

• Gaussian elimination

A method of solving a system of n linear equations in n unknowns.

• Hyperboloid of revolution

A surface generated by rotating a hyperbola about its transverse axis, p. 607.

• Interval notation

Notation used to specify intervals, pp. 4, 5.

• Major axis

The line segment through the foci of an ellipse with endpoints on the ellipse

• Product of complex numbers

(a + bi)(c + di) = (ac - bd) + (ad + bc)i

• Product of functions

(ƒg)(x) = ƒ(x)g(x)

• Quotient rule of logarithms

logb a R S b = logb R - logb S, R > 0, S > 0

• Rational zeros

Zeros of a function that are rational numbers.

• Reciprocal identity

An identity that equates a trigonometric function with the reciprocal of another trigonometricfunction.
