Continuous Function: Definition & Examples

Definition of Continuous Function  Function describe as a relation of each value from the first set that is associated exactly one value from another set. Function has many types in mathematics. One of them is continuous function. Continuous function is one of topics in calculus. Continue means unbroken. Continuous function is a function that has

Calculus

Calculus is the mathematical study of continuous change. The 2 branches are related to each other by the fundamental theorem of calculus. Both branches make use of the fundamental notions of convergence of infinite series & infinite sequences to a well-defined limit.

Differentiable

Definition of Differentiable Differentiable means:  the function has derivative the derivative f’(x) must exist for every value in the function’s domain Examples The use of differentiable function When a function is differentiable, we can use all the power of calculus when working with it. When a function is differentiable, it is continuous. Differentiable ⇒ Continuous

Integration by Substitution (Reverse Chain Rule)

Definition Integration by Substitution (also called “The Reverse Chain Rule” or “u-Substitution” ) is a method to find an integral, but only when it can be set up in a special way. It is an important method in mathematics. Integration by substitution is the counterpart to the chain rule for differentiation. When it is possible to perform

Integration

Definition Integration is used to find areas, volumes, central points and often is used to find the area underneath the graph of a function. Common Functions of Integration   Function Integral Constant ∫ a dx ax + c Variable ∫ x dx Square ∫ x2 dx   Reciprocal ∫ (1/x) dx ln|x| + c Exponential ∫

Common Derivatives

Derivative of a function of a real variable measures the sensitivity to change of the function value (output) with respect to a change in its argument (input). Derivatives are a fundamental tool of calculus. The derivative of a function of a single variable at a chosen input value (when it exists) is the slope of the tangent

Homogeneous Differential Equations

A Differential Equation is an equation with a function and one or more of its derivatives: Example: an equation with the function y and its derivative Homogeneous Differential Equations A first order Differential Equation is Homogeneous when it can be in this form: We can solve it using Separation of Variables but first we create

Implicit Differentiation

Some equations in x and y in mathematics do not explicitly define y as a function x and cannot be easily manipulated to solve for y in terms of x, even though such a function may exist. If it happen, it is implied that there exists a function y = f( x) such that the given
