|Absolute Maximum||The highest point on a graph, especially over a specified domain. It is the greatest value of f(x) over a defined interval of x, provided y=f(x).|
|Absolute Minimum||The lowest point on a graph, especially over a specified domain. It is the least value of f(x) over a defined interval of x, provided y=f(x).|
|Antiderivative||Given a function with a derivative, the antiderivative of that derivative function returns the original function.|
|Area Under a Curve||If we have limits of integration, it is most simply the definite integral of the function defined between those limits of integration.|
|Asymptote||A line (or curve) that a function approaches without actually reaching the line as the domain either grows unbounded or approaches a limit.|
