## Page numbers - from 6th edition!!!

Number sets: R is a set of real numbers (or reals); Q is a set of rational numbers, i.e. numbers that can be expressedas
7
and so on; R\Q = Qc is a set of irrationals, i.e. numbers like , e, 2;
fractions of integers such as 31 = 0.33... or 0 = 01 or 12
Z = {..., 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, ...} is a set of integers, N = {0, 1, 2, ...} is a set of natural numbers. Interesting facts: Z = N N,
R = Q Qc , R2 = R R is a 2 dimensional plane with elements in the form (x, y)
x R - for any real variable x; [1, 5] R - we imply that [1, 5] is a closed interval in a real number line.
f : R2 R - a function f is defined on the plane R2 (domain) with values in R (co-domain)
f C (R) - a function f is continuous on the real number line R.
f C 1 (R) is the same as f 0 C (R) - a function f is once continuously differentiable; simply put: a derivative of f is
continuous on R.
def . 4
Symbols used to define a variable, a function, etc...: , :=, = , =, = and many others. Eg: we define I to be an interval
[1, 5] or simply I [1, 5] or I := [1, 5], etc.
Dom (f ) is the domain of f . Range(f ) is the range of f . p.11.
= means implication (or inference). Eg. 2x = 0 = x = 0.
or iff - means equivalent or implication in both directions. Eg: 2x = 0 x = 0, i.e. the left equation implies the right
and visa verse.
p
Magnitude (or length) of a vector|(x, y, z)| = x2 + y 2 + z 2 (or just a distance from origin to point (x, y, z)).

A function f is a rule that assigns to each element x in a set D (domain) exactly one element, called f (x), in a set
E (co-domain). Note, D can be an interval, region, solid, etc in Rn and so can be E. So, we can rephrase: a function
f : D Rn E Rm . Also, the set of all f (x) elements makes up the range of f , which is the same as the image of D
under f . p.11
A graph of f is the set of ordered pairs {(x, f (x)) | x Dom (f )} or {(x, y, f (x, y)) | (x, y) Dom (f )}. Note: a graph of
f is what you draw and mistakenly(call a function! p.12, p.987

f is even (or odd), if f (x) = f (x) (or f (x) = f (x)). Try 1, x, x2 , x3 , cos (x) , sin (x) , sin2 (x). Note: f can be neither
even nor odd. p.19
f is increasing (or decreasing) on an interval I, if x < y = f (x) f (y) on I (or x < y = f (x) f (y)), p.20
Limit of f (x) as x approaches a is L, written as lim f (x) = L, if for any  > 0, there is > 0 s.t. 0 < |x a| <

f is one-to-one (or 1-1) if x 6= y = f (x) 6= f (y) (alternatively: if f (x) = f (y) = x = y), p.385
g is an inverse function of f , if g (f (x)) = x. We usually call g as f 1 . This does not mean that f is an inverse of g!

Yet, you will mostly encounter functions f and f 1 that are inverses of each other, meaning, f 1 (f (x)) = x = f f 1 (x) ,

weird void). p.989

Fubinis Thm: If f C (R), R [a, b] [c, d], then R f (x, y) dA = a c f (x, y) dydx = c a f (x, y) dxdy. Actually,
its enough to assume f is bounded
on R. p.997

## Area of a region D R2 is R 1dA. Note that a function f (x, y) = 1, which implies

uniform density over D. p.1007
Density is a unit of mass per unit area. Density is the function f we integrate in R f (x, y) dA. p.1016.

A scalar field is f : Rn R, i.e. its just any real-valued function. Eg. f (x, y) = 2x y is a scalar field, but
f (x, y) = (2x, y) is not. p.1064
A vector field on R2 is F : D R2 R2 , i.e. F (x, y) = (g (x, y) , h (x, y)). Its almost the same as the transformation
above, except we dont require F to be C 1 , etc. A vector field on R3 is F : D R3 R3 and so on... Eg. F (x, y) =
(2x, y) is a vector field, but F (x, y) = 2x y is not. p.1064.
Velocity field: length of a vector indicates the velocity at that point. Also see gravitational, force, electric fields. pp.10661067
A gradient vector field is f : Rn Rn , where f : Rn R is a scalar function (aka f is real-valued, but f is
vector-valued). p.1067
F is a conservative vector field if there is a scalar function f s.t. F = f . We call f a potential function for F.
