Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute minimum

    A value ƒ(c) is an absolute minimum value of ƒ if ƒ(c) ? ƒ(x)for all x in the domain of ƒ.

  • Acute triangle

    A triangle in which all angles measure less than 90°

  • Angle between vectors

    The angle formed by two nonzero vectors sharing a common initial point

  • Blind experiment

    An experiment in which subjects do not know if they have been given an active treatment or a placebo

  • 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.

  • Inverse composition rule

    The composition of a one-toone function with its inverse results in the identity function.

  • Inverse properties

    a + 1-a2 = 0, a # 1a

  • Irrational numbers

    Real numbers that are not rational, p. 2.

  • Line of travel

  • Perihelion

    The closest point to the Sun in a planet’s orbit.

  • Periodic function

    A function ƒ for which there is a positive number c such that for every value t in the domain of ƒ. The smallest such number c is the period of the function.

  • Polar equation

    An equation in r and ?.

  • Reciprocal function

    The function ƒ(x) = 1x

  • Replication

    The principle of experimental design that minimizes the effects of chance variation by repeating the experiment multiple times.
