When we find the area under a curve by adding rectangles, the answer is called a Rieman sum . 2 1 1 8 V t = + subinterval partition The width of a rectangle is called a subinterval . The entire interval is called the partition . Subintervals do not all have to be the same size.
2 1 1 8 V t = + subinterval partition If the partition is denoted by P , then the length of the longest subinterval is called the norm of P and is denoted by . P As gets smaller, the approximation for the area gets better. P ( 29 0 1 Area lim n k k P k f c x = = if P is a partition of the interval [ ] , a b

( 29 0 1 lim n k k P k f c x = is called the definite integral of over . f [ ] , a b If we use subintervals of equal length, then the length of a subinterval is: b a x n - ∆ = The definite integral is then given by: ( 29 1 lim n k n k f c x →∞ =
( 29 1 lim n k n k f c x →∞ = Leibnitz introduced a simpler notation for the definite integral: ( 29 ( 29 1 lim n b k a n k f c x f x dx →∞ = ∆ = Note that the very small change in x becomes dx .
