• Standard deviation

A measure of how a data set is spread

• Term of a polynomial (function)

An expression of the form anxn in a polynomial (function).

• Transpose of a matrix

The matrix AT obtained by interchanging the rows and columns of A.

• Upper bound for ƒ

Any number B for which ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of ƒ.
