2. ### Precalculus - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precalculus

Precalculus prepares students for calculus somewhat differently from the way that pre-algebra prepares students for algebra. While pre-algebra often has extensive coverage of basic algebraic concepts, precalculus courses might see only small amounts of calculus concepts, if at all, and often involves covering algebraic topics that might not ...

3. ### Calculus (medicine) - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calculus_(medicine)

A calculus (plural calculi), often called a stone, is a concretion of material, usually mineral salts, that forms in an organ or duct of the body. Formation of calculi is known as lithiasis ( / ˌ l ɪ ˈ θ aɪ ə s ɪ s / ).

4. ### History of calculus - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_calculus

Calculus, originally called infinitesimal calculus, is a mathematical discipline focused on limits, continuity, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series.Many elements of calculus appeared in ancient Greece, then in China and the Middle East, and still later again in medieval Europe and in India.

5. ### Leibniz–Newton calculus controversy - Wikipedia

The calculus controversy (German: Prioritätsstreit, "priority dispute") was an argument between the mathematicians Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz over who had first invented calculus. The question was a major intellectual controversy, which began simmering in 1699 and broke out in full force in 1711.

In mathematics, the characteristic equation (or auxiliary equation) is an algebraic equation of degree n upon which depends the solution of a given n th-order differential equation or difference equation.

7. ### Second derivative - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_derivative

In calculus, the second derivative, or the second order derivative, of a function f is the derivative of the derivative of f.Roughly speaking, the second derivative measures how the rate of change of a quantity is itself changing; for example, the second derivative of the position of an object with respect to time is the instantaneous acceleration of the object, or the rate at which the ...

E is a high-performance prover for full first-order logic, but built on a purely equational calculus, originally developed in the automated reasoning group of Technical University of Munich under the direction of Wolfgang Bibel, and now at Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University in Stuttgart.
