No, but it is non-linear.
It can by a polynomial of degree 2 or more, eg y = ax4 + bx3 + cx2 + dx + e Or inverse: y = a/x + b Or power: y = a*bx Or trigonometric: y = sin(ax + b) etc, etc
Linear elements :In an electric circuit, a linear element is an electrical element with a linear relationship between current andvoltage. Resistors are the most common example of a linear element; other examples include capacitors,inductors, and transformers.Nonlinear Elements :A nonlinear element is one which does not have a linear input/output relation. In a diode, for example, the current is a non-linear function of the voltage.Most semiconductor devices have non-linear characteristics.
(I-A)-1 is the Leontief inverse matrix of matrix A (nxn; non-singular).
The only trig functions i can think of with horizontal assymptotes are the inverse trig functions. and they go assymptotic for everytime the non-inverse function is equal to zero.
A function which doesn't form a line. It could form a parabola. These can be achieved from quadratic functions, cubic functions, etc.
A linear function is one in which the power of the function is only one. So, the graph of it would be a straight line. For example, x2 + x = y is not linear, because the highest power is 2. A main difference is, non linear functions have curves, where as a linear function is a straight line, with the exception of when the function has a power of 0, and it is technically a straight line.
A linear or non linear function is a function that either creates a straight line or a crooked line when graphed. These functions are usually represented on a table under the headings x and y.
Functions that do not result in a line when graphed.
It means if you plot the function it is not on a straight line For example y = 3x + 4 is linear function y = x squared is non linear
y = x2 where the domain is the set of real numbers does not have an inverse, because the square root function is a one-two-two mapping (except at 0). Any polynomial with more than one root, over the reals, has no inverse. y = 1/x has no inverse across 0. But it is possible to define the domain so that each of these functions has an inverse. For example y = x2 where x is non-negative has the square root function as its inverse.
It is a programming problem in which the objective function is to be optimised subject to a set of constraints. At least one of the constraints or the objective functions must be non-linear in at least one of the variables.
A non linear function is any function that can't be graphed as a straight line. Basically, it is every single function except one that can be represented by the function y = m*x + b.
Linear equations can be written as y = mx + b. Any other function would be non-linear. Some linear equations are: y = 3x y = 2 y = -2x + 4 y = 3/4x - 0.3 Some non-linear functions are: f(x) = x2 y = sqrt(x) f(x) = x3 + x2 - 2
I have no idea. However, in theory there is a difference.
