Calculus , originally called infinitesimal calculus or "the calculus of infinitesimals ", is the mathematical study of continuous change, in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of generalizations of arithmetic operations. It has two major branches, differential calculus and integral calculus ; the former concerns instantaneous rates of change, and the slopes of curves, while integral calculus concerns accumulation of quantities, and areas under or between curves. These two branches are related to each other by the fundamental theorem of calculus , and they make use of the fundamental notions of convergence of infinite sequences and infinite series to a well-defined limit.
To develop calculus for functions of one variable, we needed to make sense of the concept of a limit, which we needed to understand continuous functions and to define the derivative.

The concept of the limit is one of the most crucial things to understand in order to prepare for calculus. A limit is a number that a function approaches as the independent variable of the function approaches a given value. In the following sections, we will more carefully define a limit, as well as give examples of limits of functions to help clarify the concept. Continuity is another far-reaching concept in calculus. A function can either be continuous or discontinuous. One easy way to test for the continuity of a function is to see whether the graph of a function can be traced with a pen without lifting the pen from the paper.
Continuity and Limits
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. We say that the function has a limit L at an input p, if f x gets closer and closer to L as x moves closer and closer to p. More specifically, when f is applied to any input sufficiently close to p , the output value is forced arbitrarily close to L. On the other hand, if some inputs very close to p are taken to outputs that stay a fixed distance apart, then we say the limit does not exist.
In mathematics , a limit is the value that a function or sequence "approaches" as the input or index "approaches" some value. The concept of a limit of a sequence is further generalized to the concept of a limit of a topological net , and is closely related to limit and direct limit in category theory. Suppose f is a real-valued function and c is a real number.
Теперь предстояло принять решение. Бросить все и ехать в аэропорт. Вопрос национальной безопасности. Он тихо выругался. Тогда почему они послали не профессионального агента, а университетского преподавателя.
С шифровалкой все в полном порядке - как. Бринкерхофф хотел было уже взять следующий документ, но что-то задержало его внимание. В самом низу страницы отсутствовала последняя СЦР. В ней оказалось такое количество знаков, что ее пришлось перенести в следующую колонку.
