Required Math Calculus Differentiation: ( x n ) 0 = nx n - 1 , ( logx ) 0 = 1 / x , ( f - 1 ( y ) ) 0 = 1 f 0 ( f - 1 ( y )) . Integration: R b a f ( x ) dx = F ( x ) | b a = F ( b ) - F ( a ). Chain Rule: ( f ( g ( x ))) 0 = f 0 ( g ( x )) g 0 ( x ). Integration by Parts: R b a F ( x ) g ( x ) dx = F ( x ) G ( x ) | b a - R b a f ( x ) G ( x ) dx . Differential equation. ..
