Until now we have been finding integrals of continuous functions over closed intervals. Sometimes we can find integrals for functions where the function or the limits are infinite. These are called improper integrals .
Example 1: 1 0 1 1 x dx x + - Since x = 1 is an asymptote, the function has no maximum. Can we find the area under an infinitely high curve? We could define this integral as: 0 1 1 lim 1 b b x dx x - + - (left hand limit) We must approach the limit from inside the interval.
