The process of taking a given function f and finding a function F whose derivative is f.

A statistical distribution having two separated peaks.

A type of function which, intuitively, can be drawn without lifting one's pencil.

A function f' which measures the rate of change of another function f.

The base of the natural logarithm.

A rule that uniquely associates members of one set with members of another set.

A set with a binary operation that is closed, associative, has an identity, and has the inverse property.

The base 16 system for representing numbers.

A mathematical object developed in calculus to find areas.

A type of discontinuity of a function at a point where the function has finite, but unequal, limits as the independent variable approaches the point from the left and from the righ

For a function f: A ---> B, the subset of A which gets mapped to zero.

A particular integral transform often used to solve ordinary differential equations.

An array of numbers. It is often used to denote a linear transformation.

A type of vector which is perpendicular to a given surface.

A branch of mathematics which studies the maximum and minimum values of functions.

The conic section whose graph is given by y = x^2.

Sometimes written at the end of a proof, it is an abbreviation of a Latin phrase which means 'that which was to be demonstrated.'

The dimension of the image of a linear transformation.

An infinite ordered set of terms combined together by addition, for example 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + ... = 2.

Intuitively a line which just 'kisses' the graph of a function, its slope is equal to the derivative of the function at the point of intersection.

Something that cannot be formally proved or disproved.

A mathematical structure formed by a collection of elements which may be added together and multiplied ('scaled') by numbers. It is a major topic in Linear Algebra.

A matrix determinant used in the study of differential equations to determine whether solutions are linearly independent.

A connective in logic which yields true if exactly one (but not both) of two conditions is true.

For a triangle with vertices ABC, it is the circle passing through vertex A and the reflections of vertices B and C with respect to the opposite sides.
