# Integration by 3 parts Watch

1. How on earth can I integrate this:

?
2. first find then do IBP on with and

I got for first bit

Is this anywhere near right?

if memory serves, yes

Do you have to do it by parts? If not you can do it by log differentiation and it's much simpler:

Let

Log both sides. We know ln(abc) = lna + lnb + lnc. Use this to split the expression and then differentiate wrt x (remembering left hand side is implicit, so you get 1/y dy/dx)

Once you multiply up by the y and put in a nicer form you will get the required answer
gosh, that's so much simpler. Cheers!

it's also incorrect

Get your facts straight nub. I did it and checked it in Matlab and it's right

What on Earth are you on about? You've just differentiated it, whereas the OP is trying to integrate... Pheylan's advice is correct.

Yes but you've invented your own question.
11. While on integration

integral of

e^(-x) * sine sqared x
???

It's a tricky one. You need to use IBP 3 times and also be able to spot the trick for integrating things of the form . The answer isn't that messy.
13. for the complex conscious... or if you just hate using paper

taking the imaginary part gives: and we're done.

all you need to know is that and treat i as a constant when integrating

For the integral , try the identity and integrate by parts as normally
