Geometrically, if f ( x ) ≥ 0 for a ≤ x ≤ b , the integral represents the area between the curve represented by y = f ( x ) and the xaxis. We next turn to integration of functions of two variables f : R 2 → R . First, for simplicity, suppose R = [ a,b ] × [ c,d ] – this is the rectangle whose corners are ( a,c ), ( a,d ), ( b,c ) and ( b,d ). Let P be a partition of R into a grid of rectangles and let k P k be the largest side length of any of the rectangles in P . Then Z Z R fdydx = Z b a Z d c f ( x,y ) dydx = lim k P k→ X I ∈ P f ( x I ,y I )  I  where ( x I ,y I ) is an arbitrary point in the rectangle I and  I  denotes the area of the rectangle I . The sum in the limit is referred to as a Riemann Sum and the integral is...
