Let R be a plane region in the xy-plane. Subdivide R into subrectangles R i ( i = 1 ,...,n ) . Let Δ A i be the area of R i and ( x i ,y i ) be a point in R i . Let f ( x,y ) be a function of two variables. Then the double integral of f over R is ZZ R f ( x,y ) dA = lim n →∞ n X i =1 f ( x i ,y i )Δ A i . 2 MA1505 Chapter 8. Multiple Integrals 8.1.2 Geometrical meaning Geometrically, if f ( x,y ) ≥ 0 for all ( x,y ) ∈ R, the definite integral RR R f ( x,y ) dA is equal to the vol- ume under the surface z = f ( x,y ) and above the xy-plane over the region R as shown in the following diagram. y z z=f(x,y) a b x c d R Summing over all the rectangles, n X i =1 f ( x i ,y i ) A i gives the approximate volume of the solid under the 2 3 MA1505 Chapter 8. Multiple Integrals surface and above R . By letting n go to ∞ , (i.e. making the subdivision more refined), the above sum will approach the exact volume of the solid. 8.1.3 Properties of Double Integrals (1) ZZ R ( f ( x,y ) + g ( x,y )) dA = ZZ R f ( x,y ) dA + ZZ R g ( x,y ) dA. (2) ZZ R cf ( x,y ) dA = c ZZ R f ( x,y ) dA, where c is a constant. (3) If f ( x,y ) ≥ g ( x,y ) for all ( x,y ) ∈ R , then ZZ R f ( x,y ) dA ≥ ZZ R g ( x,y ) dA. (4) ZZ R dA = ZZ R 1 dA ¶ = A ( R ), the area of R . 3 4 MA1505 Chapter 8. Multiple Integrals (5) ZZ R f ( x,y ) dA = ZZ R 1 f ( x,y ) dA + ZZ R 2 f ( x,y ) dA , where R = R 1 ∪ R 2 and R 1 , R 2 do not overlap except perhaps on their boundary. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ............................................................ ............................................ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The key is to describe the given region in terms of the coordinates. 4 5 MA1505 Chapter 8. Multiple Integrals 8.2.1 Rectangular regions A rectangular region R in the xy-plane can be de- scribed in terms of inequalities: a ≤ x ≤ b, c ≤ y ≤ d. Then ZZ R f ( x,y ) dA = Z d c " Z b a f ( x,y ) dx # dy. The RHS is called an iterated integral . i.e. re- peating the integration for each variable, one at a time. We can also change the order of the variables of in- tegration (without changing the value): ZZ R f ( x,y ) dA = Z b a " Z d c f ( x,y ) dy # dx....
