Integration by Parts
Integration By Parts Start with the product rule: This is the Integration by Parts formula.
The Integration by Parts formula is a “product rule” for integration. u differentiates to zero (usually). v’ is easy to integrate. Choose u in this order: LIPET Logs, Inverse trig, Polynomial, Exponential, Trig
Example 1: polynomial factor LIPET
Example 2: logarithmic factor LIPET
This is still a product, so we need to use integration by parts again. Example 3: LIPET
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:
This is still a product, so we need to use integration by parts again. Example 3: LIPET This is easier and quicker to do with tabular integration!
