Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Additive inverse of a complex number

    The opposite of a + bi, or -a - bi

  • Boundary

    The set of points on the “edge” of a region

  • Common logarithm

    A logarithm with base 10.

  • Dependent event

    An event whose probability depends on another event already occurring

  • Factoring (a polynomial)

    Writing a polynomial as a product of two or more polynomial factors.

  • Fundamental

    Theorem of Algebra A polynomial function of degree has n complex zeros (counting multiplicity).

  • Infinite limit

    A special case of a limit that does not exist.

  • Infinite sequence

    A function whose domain is the set of all natural numbers.

  • Inverse composition rule

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

  • Jump discontinuity at x a

    limx:a - ƒ1x2 and limx:a + ƒ1x2 exist but are not equal
