Integration by Parts

This is the Integration by Parts formula.

u differentiates to zero (usually).
v’ is easy to integrate. u differentiates to zero (usually). The Integration by Parts formula is a “product rule” for integration. Choose u in this order: LIPET Logs, Inverse trig, Polynomial, Exponential, Trig

Example 1: LIPET polynomial factor

Example 2: LIPET logarithmic factor

Example 3: LIPET This is still a product, so we need to use integration by parts again.

The Integration by Parts formula can be written as:

Example 4: LIPET This is the expression we started with!

Example 4 continued … LIPET

Example 4 continued … This is called “solving for the unknown integral.” It works when both factors integrate and differentiate forever.

A Shortcut: Tabular Integration
Tabular integration works for integrals of the form: where: Differentiates to zero in several steps. Integrates repeatedly.

Compare this with the same problem done the other way:

Example 3: LIPET This is still a product, so we need to use integration by parts again. This is easier and quicker to do with tabular integration!
