Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Base

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

• Constant function (on an interval)

ƒ(x 1) = ƒ(x 2) x for any x1 and x2 (in the interval)

• Constant of variation

See Power function.

• Coordinate plane

See Cartesian coordinate system.

• Definite integral

The definite integral of the function ƒ over [a,b] is Lbaƒ(x) dx = limn: q ani=1 ƒ(xi) ¢x provided the limit of the Riemann sums exists

• Domain of a function

The set of all input values for a function

• Dot product

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

• Extraneous solution

Any solution of the resulting equation that is not a solution of the original equation.

• Finite sequence

A function whose domain is the first n positive integers for some fixed integer n.

• Graph of a polar equation

The set of all points in the polar coordinate system corresponding to the ordered pairs (r,?) that are solutions of the polar equation.

• Graph of parametric equations

The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the ordered pairs determined by the parametric equations.

• Identity

An equation that is always true throughout its domain.

• LRAM

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

• Pascal’s triangle

A number pattern in which row n (beginning with n = 02) consists of the coefficients of the expanded form of (a+b)n.

• Polar axis

See Polar coordinate system.

• Polar coordinates

The numbers (r, ?) that determine a point’s location in a polar coordinate system. The number r is the directed distance and ? is the directed angle

• Probability function

A function P that assigns a real number to each outcome O in a sample space satisfying: 0 … P1O2 … 1, P12 = 0, and the sum of the probabilities of all outcomes is 1.

• Row echelon form

A matrix in which rows consisting of all 0’s occur only at the bottom of the matrix, the first nonzero entry in any row with nonzero entries is 1, and the leading 1’s move to the right as we move down the rows.

• Upper bound for real zeros

A number d is an upper bound for the set of real zeros of ƒ if ƒ(x) ? 0 whenever x > d.

• Work

The product of a force applied to an object over a given distance W = ƒFƒ ƒAB!ƒ.
