In classical mathematics, analytic geometry, also known as coordinate geometry or Cartesian geometry, is the study of geometry using a coordinate system. This contrasts with synthetic geometry
Analytic geometry is used in physics and engineering, and also in aviation, rocketry, space science, and spaceflight. It is the foundation of most modern fields of geometry, including algebraic, differential, discrete and computational geometry.
In mathematics, differential calculus is used, To find the rate of change of a quantity with respect to other. In case of finding a function is increasing or decreasing functions in a graph
In mathematics, calculus is a branch that deals with finding the different properties of integrals and derivatives of functions. It is based on the summation of the infinitesimal differences. Calculus is the study of continuous change of a function or a rate of change of a function
A function is defined as a relation from a set of inputs to the set of outputs in which each input is exactly associated with one output. The function is represented by ?f(x)?.
The fundamental tool of differential calculus is derivative. The derivative is used to show the rate of change. It helps to show the amount by which the function is changing for a given point. The derivative is called a slope. It measures the steepness of the graph of a function.
Graphically, we define a derivative as the slope of the tangent, that meets at a point on the curve or which gives derivative at the point where tangent meets the curve. Differentiation has many applications in various fields. Checking the rate of change in temperature of the atmosphere or deriving physics equations based on measurement and units, etc, are the common examples.
Typical applications include finding maximum and minimum values of functions in order to solve practical problems in optimization.
fundamental theorem of calculus, Basic principle of calculus. It relates the derivative to the integral and provides the principal method for evaluating definite integrals (see differential calculus; integral calculus)
a branch of mathematics concerned chiefly with the study of the rate of change of functions with respect to their variables especially through the use of derivatives and differentials
In mathematics, the limit of a function is a fundamental concept in calculus and analysis concerning the behavior of that function near a particular input. Formal definitions, first devised in the early 19th century, are given below. Informally, a function f assigns an output f(x) to every input x.
The notion of a limit has many applications in modern calculus. In particular, the many definitions of continuity employ the concept of limit: roughly, a function is continuous if all of its limits agree with the values of the function. The concept of limit also appears in the definition of the derivative: in the calculus of one variable, this is the limiting value of the slope of secant lines to the graph of a function.
The limit of a function f(x) as x approaches p is a number L with the following property: given any target distance from L, there is a distance from p within which the values of f(x) remain within the target distance.In fact, this explicit statement is quite close to the formal definition of the limit of a function
Limits in maths are defined as the values that a function approaches the output for the given input values.
ntegral calculus helps in finding the anti-derivatives of a function. These anti-derivatives are also called the integrals of the function.
Integrals are the values of the function found by the process of integration. The process of getting f(x) from f'(x) is called integration.
F(x) is called an antiderivative or Newton-Leibnitz integral or primitive of a function f(x) on an interval I. F'(x) = f(x), for every value of x in I.
Integration can be used to find areas, volumes, central points and many useful things. It is often used to find the area underneath the graph of a function and the x-axis.
We define integrals as the function of the area bounded by the curve y = f(x), a ? x ? b, the x-axis, and the ordinates x = a and x =b, where b>a.
