The Proof is Trivial! Watch

1. (Original post by newblood)
if youre referring to the original integral, i think he also changed the signs as well to change the limits, just for ease of manipulation id imagine
Changing order of limits is often not justified though.

i havent done uni maths so i'll step away here

I know this isnt a maths help thread and i dont wish to derail it but since people are currently online and no-one has posted solutions recently : can anyone provide some clarity on this thread;

http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2600276

i can not understand why its not applying to differentiation/calculus - is that in fact true?

Why are you justified in swapping the order of limits here?
DCT of course.

use where for instance

On the ground.

By the way, a really really neat proof that speed of falling is independent of mass is:
Drop two identical cannonballs next to each other. They will obviously fall at the same speed as each other.
Repeat the experiment but this time tie the cannonballs together with a loose piece of string.

It doesn't... O_o

8. In how many different ways can you find

Try doing it using only the cyclic nature of teh derivatives of the functions in the integrand.

There's a host of different IBP to do, although ultimately you end up doing the same things whichever parts you take.

Problem 458***

For show that

This is trivialish via complex analysis, just use de Moivre and a semicircular contour.
12. Problem 461 **/***

Evaluate

Problem 461 **/***
Presumably over . In any case, this has been posted already (and something very similar to 458 was posted as well). I think the thread needs a break from integration

I had a go at the indefinite integration but kept going around in circles. All of my substitutions kept spiraling me around to the same form

Also, I've got a quick question. For integrals with lower and upper bounds, say , are we integrating over the interval or ?

Love that problem, though I'm sure I've seen it on this thread before? At any rate I'll leave it for someone who's not done it before
16. Problem 462 ***

A is a symmetric matrix with eigenvectors u and v and with corresponding, distinct eigenvalues λ, μ. Show that the eigenvectors are orthogonal.

(Sorry if this question has been posted before, I don't want to look through 461 other questions :L, also I'm sorry if it's too easy/too hard/no one has any idea what I'm on about)

Ah, definitely no closed form for this one.

Also, I've got a quick question. For integrals with lower and upper bounds, say , are we integrating over the interval or ?
The Riemann integral is over (in the sense that it requires to be defined everywhere in the interval of integration). Improper integrals are then defined as limits.
19. (Original post by Khallil)
The indefinite integral?
No of course not But the definite integral from 0 to 1 only needs a substitution to evaluate

(Will admit that I misread the question and thought it said the definite integral from 0 to 1)

Notice that for nice enough integrands, they're the same, because individual points as discontinuities don't alter the value of the integral.
