Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Additive identity for the complex numbers

    0 + 0i is the complex number zero

  • Bounded below

    A function is bounded below if there is a number b such that b ? ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of f.

  • Compound interest

    Interest that becomes part of the investment

  • Direction vector for a line

    A vector in the direction of a line in three-dimensional space

  • Heron’s formula

    The area of ¢ABC with semiperimeter s is given by 2s1s - a21s - b21s - c2.

  • Infinite discontinuity at x = a

    limx:a + x a ƒ(x) = q6 or limx:a - ƒ(x) = q.

  • Initial value of a function

    ƒ 0.

  • Lemniscate

    A graph of a polar equation of the form r2 = a2 sin 2u or r 2 = a2 cos 2u.

  • Mode of a data set

    The category or number that occurs most frequently in the set.

  • Multiplicative identity for matrices

    See Identity matrix

  • Multiplicative inverse of a matrix

    See Inverse of a matrix

  • n factorial

    For any positive integer n, n factorial is n! = n.(n - 1) . (n - 2) .... .3.2.1; zero factorial is 0! = 1

  • Obtuse triangle

    A triangle in which one angle is greater than 90°.

  • Partial sums

    See Sequence of partial sums.

  • 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.

  • 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)

  • Radian

    The measure of a central angle whose intercepted arc has a length equal to the circle’s radius.

  • Vertex of an angle

    See Angle.

  • Xmin

    The x-value of the left side of the viewing window,.

  • Zero vector

    The vector <0,0> or <0,0,0>.
