At first, its not clear how integration by parts helps. Write tan 1 x dx = tan 1 x (1 dx ) = uv dx with u = tan 1 x and v = 1 . Therefore, 1 v = x and u = 1 + x 2 Plug all of these into the formula for integration by parts to get: 1 tan 1 x dx = uv dx = (tan 1 x ) x 1 + x 2 ( x ) dx = x tan 1 x 1 2 ln  1 + x 2  + c Alternative Approach to Integration by Parts As above, the product rule: ( uv ) = u v + uv can be rewritten as uv = ( uv ) u v This time, lets take the definite integral: b b b uv dx = ( uv ) dx u v dx a a a 1 Lecture 30 18.01 Fall 2006 By the fundamental theorem of calculus, we can say b b b uv dx = uv u v dx a a a Another notation in the indefinite case is u dv = uv v du This is the same because dv = v dx = uv dx = u dv and du = u dx = u v dx = vu dx = v du Example 2. (ln x ) dx 1 u = ln x ; du = dx and dv = dx ; v = x x 1 (ln x ) dx = x ln x...
