Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Compound fraction

A fractional expression in which the numerator or denominator may contain fractions

• De Moivre’s theorem

(r(cos ? + i sin ?))n = r n (cos n? + i sin n?)

• Differentiable at x = a

ƒ'(a) exists

• Eccentricity

A nonnegative number that specifies how off-center the focus of a conic is

• Hyperboloid of revolution

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

• Inferential statistics

Using the science of statistics to make inferences about the parameters in a population from a sample.

• Integrable over [a, b] Lba

ƒ1x2 dx exists.

• Inverse reflection principle

If the graph of a relation is reflected across the line y = x , the graph of the inverse relation results.

• Length of a vector

See Magnitude of a vector.

• Linear inequality in x

An inequality that can be written in the form ax + b < 0 ,ax + b … 0 , ax + b > 0, or ax + b Ú 0, where a and b are real numbers and a Z 0

• Linear regression equation

Equation of a linear regression line

• Natural logarithmic regression

A procedure for fitting a logarithmic curve to a set of data.

• Opens upward or downward

A parabola y = ax 2 + bx + c opens upward if a > 0 and opens downward if a < 0.

• Polynomial in x

An expression that can be written in the form an x n + an-1x n-1 + Á + a1x + a0, where n is a nonnegative integer, the coefficients are real numbers, and an ? 0. The degree of the polynomial is n, the leading coefficient is an, the leading term is anxn, and the constant term is a0. (The number 0 is the zero polynomial)

• Polynomial interpolation

The process of fitting a polynomial of degree n to (n + 1) points.

• Proportional

See Power function

• Quantitative variable

A variable (in statistics) that takes on numerical values for a characteristic being measured.

• Resistant measure

A statistical measure that does not change much in response to outliers.

• Row operations

See Elementary row operations.

• Second-degree equation in two variables

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