Calculus is the study of functions based on the premise that all smooth curves can be considered to consist of infinitesimally small straight segments (microsegments). One con…sequence of this premise is that arbitrary values on the generic microsegment are nilsquare (equal to zero when squared). This applies most obviously to the values of the microsegment around zero in y = x^2. Another consequence is that the applicable logic omits the law of excluded middle; that is, it would be false to say that an infinitesimal is either identical to or distinct from zero. Thus for any smooth curve, f'(x) = [f(x+E) - f(x)] / E Where f'(x) indicates the rate of change of the function and where E (epsilon) is an infinitesimal microsegment. The process of working out rates of change is called Differentiation. The most useful form of the above equation is, f(x + E) = f(x) +Ef'(x) If the area beneath a curve between the origin and x is given by A(x) then, A(x + E) = A(x) + EA'(x) We also independently know that, A(x + E) - A(x) = Ef(x) + 1/2f'(x)E.E The second term on the RHS is the triangle beneath the microsegment and the first is the rectangle beneath that. Combining these equations, removing the null term, and cancelling E yields, A'(x) = f(x) This is the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. It shows that the reverse differentiation of a function yields its area function. This process is called Integration. The name of the approach to calculus outlined here is Smooth Infinitesimal Analysis. its a type of math that involves algebra and trigonometry. The branch of mathematics that deals with limits and the differentiation and integration of functions of one or more variables. Calculus is a math figure relating to targeting an object. Below is an example of calculus: You are about to shoot a missile at plane. The plane is moving forward a little bit, so you aim in front of the plane so that the missile and plane collide. NOTE: Calculus does not count as a mathematical figure if the "Missile" is Target-Locked. Calculus only counts if the "Missile" Is aiming ahead of the "Plane" to intercept. Target-Locking "Missiles" allways aim for the "Plane" and collide with it. (MORE)

The mathematical theory of stochastic integrals, i.e. integrals where the integrator function is over the path of a stochastic, or random, process. Brownian motion is the clas…sical example of a stochastic process. It is widely used to model the prices of financial assets and is at the basis of Black and Scholes' theory of option pricing.

it's tricky Well, that question is far too difficult to answer; you should take some Calc courses. Calculus is the study of the rate at which something changes, in rel…ation to something else... Think slope... except it gets complicated. (MORE)

Calculus is about applying the idea of limits to functions in various ways. For example, the limit of the slope of a curve as the length of the curve approaches zero, or the l…imit of the area of rectangle as its length goes to zero. Limits are also used in the study of infinite series as in the limit of a function of x as x approaches infinity. (MORE)

Calculus is a branch of mathematics which came from the thoughts of many different individuals. For example, the Greek scholar Archimedes (287-212 B.C.) calculated the areas a…nd volumes of complex shapes. Isaac Newton further developed the notion of calculus. There are two branches of calculus which are: differential calculus and integral calculus. The former seeks to describe the magnitude of the instantaneous rate of change of a graph, this is called the derivative. For example: the derivative of a position vs. time graph is a velocity vs. time graph, this is because the rate of change of position is velocity. The latter seeks to describe the area covered by a graph and is called the integral. For example: the integral of a velocity vs. time graph is the total displacement. Calculus is useful because the world is rarely static; it is a dynamic and complex place. Calculus is used to model real-world situations, or to extrapolate the change of variables. (MORE)

Typically, the pre-requisite for calculus is algebra and trigonometry. These are usually universally required because you need these skills to actually do the mathematics of t…he calculus. There are a lot of identities in trigonometry that you will wish you could remember when you are working with calculus of trigonometric functions. (MORE)

Basic calculus is about the study of functions. The two main divisions of calculus are differentiation and integration. Differentiation has to do with finding the tangent line… to a function at any given point on the function. Integration has to do with finding the area under (or above) a curve. Other topics covered in calculus include: Differential equations Approximations of functions (linear approximation, series, Taylor series) Function analysis (Intermediate Value Theorem, Mean Value Theorem) (MORE)
