1 Review of Integration Techniques Math 192 - Spring 1997 Written by Don Allers; Revised by Sean Carver 1 Methods of Integration Substitution Idea: Rename an ugly piece of the integrand and see if it reduces to a simpler form that you can integrate. When? Try this method if your integral has ugly pieces like e tan v or cos(ln x ), or if it looks like substitution will turn the integral into an easy one, such as R x n dx , R e x dx , or any of the other known integrals in Table 7.1 on page 556. Eg: (a) Z e tan v sec 2 v dv, (b) Z dx x cos(ln x ) , (c) Z 2 w dw 2 w , (d) Z dx x ( x + 1) . Integration By Parts When? R f ( x ) g ( x ) dx where f ( x ) can be easily differentiated, and g ( x ) easily integrated. Good choices for f ( x ) are f ( x ) = a 0 + a 1 x + · · · a n x n (any polynomial), f ( x ) = ln( x ), or f ( x ) = tan - 1 ( x ) (or any other inverse trig function). Often g ( x ) is either sin( x ), cos( x ), or e x , but g ( x ) can be anything if f ( x ) is a log function or an inverse trig function.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
