Lecture 6 : Rational functions : Partial fractions ( Refers to Section 6.5 of your text ) After having practiced the problems associated to the concepts of this lecture the student should be able to : Solve integrals containing rational functions by “partial fractions” method. 6.1 Rational functions as partial fractions We have seem that an integrand which is a rational function where the degree of the numerator is less than or equal to the degree of the denominator is normally simplified by performing long division. This simplifies the expression. For other cases we apply a method of integration called Partial fractions . It is an algorithm for integrating a rational function where the degree of the denominator is larger than the degree of the numerator. The principles of “partial fractions” are given as we proceed through the following examples. 6.2
