asymptote definition

• noun:
• A line whose distance to a given curve tends to zero. An asymptote may or may well not intersect its connected bend.
• A straight line which a curve draws near arbitrarily closely, because they check-out infinity. The restriction of curve, its tangent "at infinity".
• something which comes close to but never ever meets something else.
• A line which gets near nearer for some curve than assignable distance, but, though infinitely extended, would never fulfill it. Asymptotes are straight lines or curves. A rectilinear asymptote can be conceived as a tangent towards curve at an infinite length.
• A straight range whoever distance from a curve is lower than any assignable quantity, but which cannot meet up with the bend at any finite length through the beginning.
• In zoology, either of two right outlines attracted from apex toward aperture of the conical area of the phragmocone in the belemnites or fossil dibranchiate cephalopods.
• a straight range this is the limiting worth of a curve; can be viewed as tangent at infinity
• A line whose length to confirmed curve sometimes zero. An asymptote may or may not intersect its associated bend.
• A straight range which a curve gets near arbitrarily closely, because they head to infinity. The restriction of curve, its tangent "at infinity".
• Anything which comes close to but never ever meets another thing.
• A line which approaches nearer to some bend than assignable length, but, though infinitely extended, would not fulfill it. Asymptotes can be straight lines or curves. A rectilinear asymptote are conceived as a tangent to your curve at an infinite length.
• A straight line whoever length from a curve is significantly less than any assignable volume, but which cannot meet up with the curve at any finite distance from the origin.
• In zoology, either of two right lines attracted from apex into the aperture of conical an element of the phragmocone into the belemnites or fossil dibranchiate cephalopods.
• a straight range that's the limiting value of a curve; can be viewed as as tangent at infinity
• verb:
• To approach, but never ever rather touch, a straight range, as anything visits infinity.
• To approach, but never rather touch, a straight line, as one thing visits infinity.
• others:
• In math, approaching indefinitely near, as a line to a curve, but never ever conference. See II.
• In math, nearing indefinitely near, as a line to a curve, but never meeting. See II.
