What does "ordinate" mean? When read about the zeta function, I encounter comments about "ordinates of zeros".
The ordinates of zeros refer to the y-values of points on a graph where the x-value is equal to zero. In other words, they are the points where the graph crosses or intersects with the y-axis.
The ordinates of zeros are important because they represent the solutions to equations and can help determine the roots or x-intercepts of a function. They also provide information about the behavior and symmetry of a graph.
To find the ordinates of zeros, you can set the equation equal to zero and solve for the y-value. Alternatively, you can plot the points on a graph and identify where the graph crosses the y-axis.
Yes, there can be multiple ordinates of zeros for a given equation or function. This means that there can be multiple points where the graph crosses or intersects with the y-axis.
The ordinates of zeros refer to the y-values of points on a graph where the x-value is equal to zero. On the other hand, the abscissas of zeros refer to the x-values of points on a graph where the y-value is equal to zero. In other words, they represent the solutions to equations for the y-axis and x-axis, respectively.
