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

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

  • 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.

  • Branches

    The two separate curves that make up a hyperbola

  • Component form of a vector

    If a vector’s representative in standard position has a terminal point (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) , then (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) is the component form of the vector, and a and b are the horizontal and vertical components of the vector (or a, b, and c are the x-, y-, and z-components of the vector, respectively)

  • Constant

    A letter or symbol that stands for a specific number,

  • Continuous at x = a

    lim x:a x a ƒ(x) = ƒ(a)

  • Conversion factor

    A ratio equal to 1, used for unit conversion

  • Dependent event

    An event whose probability depends on another event already occurring

  • Factored form

    The left side of u(v + w) = uv + uw.

  • Finite series

    Sum of a finite number of terms.

  • Higher-degree polynomial function

    A polynomial function whose degree is ? 3

  • Intermediate Value Theorem

    If ƒ is a polynomial function and a < b , then ƒ assumes every value between ƒ(a) and ƒ(b).

  • Inverse reflection principle

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

  • Irreducible quadratic over the reals

    A quadratic polynomial with real coefficients that cannot be factored using real coefficients.

  • Perihelion

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

  • Pie chart

    See Circle graph.

  • Present value of an annuity T

    he net amount of your money put into an annuity.

  • Range of a function

    The set of all output values corresponding to elements in the domain.

  • Real part of a complex number

    See Complex number.

  • Union of two sets A and B

    The set of all elements that belong to A or B or both.
