Let ” f” if function of x defined on [a, b] and \(\frac{d}{d x}\) [f(x)] = Φ(x) and a and b, are two values independent of variable x, then for all values of x in domain off then \(\int_{a}^{b}\) Φ(x)dx = \([\mathrm{f}(\mathrm{x})]_{\mathrm{a}}^{\mathrm{b}}\) = f(b) – f(a)

2. Properties of Definite Integral

(i) \(\int_{a}^{b}\)f(x)dx = \(\int_{a}^{b}\)f(t)dt

(ii) \(\int_{a}^{b}\) f(x)dx = – \(\int_{a}^{b}\) f(x)dx

(iii) \(\int_{a}^{b}\)f(x)dx = \(\int_{a}^{c}\)f(x)dx + \(\int_{c}^{b}\)f(x)dx where a < c < b.

(iv) \(\int_{0}^{a}\)f(x)dx = \(\int_{0}^{a}\)f(a – x)dx

(v) \(\int_{-a}^{a}\)f (x) dx = \(\left\{\begin{array}{l}0, \text { if } f(-x)=-f(x) \text { i.e. if } f(x) \text { is odd } \\2 \int_{0}^{a} f(x) d x, \text { if } f(-x)=f(x) \text { i.e.if } f(x) \text { is even }\end{array}\right.\)

(vi) \(\int_{0}^{2 \mathrm{a}} \mathrm{f}(\mathrm{x}) \mathrm{dx}=\left\{\begin{array}{ll}2 \int_{0}^{\mathrm{a}} \mathrm{f}(\mathrm{x}) \mathrm{dx}, & \text { if } \mathrm{f}(2 \mathrm{a}-\mathrm{x})=\mathrm{f}(\mathrm{x}) \\
0, & \text { if } \mathrm{f}(2 \mathrm{a}-\mathrm{x})=-\mathrm{f}(\mathrm{x}) \end{array}\right.\)

(vii) If f(x) = f(x + a), then \(\int_{0}^{na}\)f(x)dx = n\(\int_{0}^{a}\)f(x)dx

(viii) \(\int_{a}^{b}\)f(x)dx = \(\int_{a}^{b}\)f(a + b – x)dx

(ix) \(\frac{d}{d t}\left[\int_{\phi(t)}^{\psi(t)} f(x) d x\right]\) = f{ψ(t)} ψ'(t) – f{Φ(t) Φ'(t)

(x) \(\int_{a+n T}^{b+n T}\)f(x)dx = \(\int_{a}^{b}\)f(x), where f(x) is periodic with period “T”.

(xi) If f(a + n) = f(x) then \(\int_{0}^{na}\) f (x)dx dx = n \(\int_{0}^{a}\) f(x)dx

(xii) \(\int_{ma}^{na}\)f(x) dx = (n – m)\(\int_{0}^{a}\)f(x)dx, where f is periodic function with period “a” i.e. f(a + x) = f(x) ∀ x ∈ [a, b]

(xiii) If f(x) ≤ g(x) then \(\int_{0}^{b}\) f(x)dx ≤ \(\int_{0}^{b}\) g(x)dx

(xiv) \(\left|\int_{a}^{b} f(x) d x\right| \leq \int_{a}^{b}|f(x)| d x\)

(xv) If m is the least value and M is the greastest value of the function f(x) on the interval [a, b] then
m(b – a) ≤ \(\int_{a}^{b}\) f (x)dx ≤ M(b – a)

(xvi) If f(x), g(x) are integrable on the interval (a, b) then
\(\left.\left|\int_{a}^{b} f(x) g(x) d x\right| \leq \sqrt{\left(\int_{a}^{b} f^{2}(x) d x\right)\left(\int_{a}^{b} g^{2}(x) d x\right)}\right)\) above inequality is known as schwarz – Buny ak ovsky inequality.

(xvii) If “f” is continuous, on [a, b] then a Number “c” in [a, b] at which
f(c) = \(\frac{1}{(b-a)} \int_{a}^{b} f(x) d x\),
f(c) is Mean value of function “f in the [a, b]

(xviii) Let p ≤ t ≤ q and a ≤ x ≤ b, also function f(x, t) & f'(x, t) [differentiated with respect to ” t”] are continuous function then I'(t) = \(\int_{a}^{b}\)f'(x, t)dx, were I'(t) is differentiation of I(t) with respect to “t”.

(xix) Improper Integrals:

  • \(\int_{a}^{∞}\)f(x)dx = \(\lim _{t \rightarrow+\infty} \int_{a}^{t}\)f(x)dx
  • \(\int_{-\infty}^{+a}\) f(x)dx= \(\lim _{t \rightarrow-\infty} \int_{a}^{t}\)f(x)dx
  • \(\int_{-\infty}^{+∞}\)f(x)dx= \(\int_{-\infty}^{a}\) f(x)dx + \(\int_{a}^{+\infty}\)f(x)dx
    now use technique of (a) and (b)

3. Some important formulae

I. \(\int_{0}^{\pi / 2}\)logsin x dx = \(\int_{0}^{\pi / 2}\)logcos x dx = –\(\left(\frac{\pi}{2}\right)\)log 2.

II. Walli’s Formula [define of m and n]
(i) \(\int_{0}^{\pi / 2}\)sinnx dx = \(\int_{0}^{\pi / 2}\) cosnx dx = \(\frac{(n-1)}{n} \frac{(n-3)}{(n-2)} \ldots \frac{2}{3} \cdot 1\)(n is odd)
= \(\frac{(n-1)}{n} \frac{(n-3)}{(n-2)} \ldots . \frac{1}{2} \times \frac{\pi}{2}\)(n is even)

(ii) \(\int_{0}^{\pi / 2}\)sinmx cosnx dx
= \(\frac{(m-1)(m-3) \ldots(2 \text { or } 1)(n-1)(n-3) \ldots(2 \text { or } 1)}{(m+n)(m+n-2) \ldots(2 \text { or } 1)}\) × (1 or π/2)
It is important to note that we multiply by (n/2) when both m and n are even.

4. Summation of series by integration

For finding sum of an infinite series with the help of definite integration, following formula is used
\(\lim _{n \rightarrow \infty} \sum_{r=0}^{n-1} f\left(\frac{r}{n}\right) \cdot \frac{1}{n}=\int_{0}^{1} f(x) d x\)
Working rules

  • Express the given series in the form of lim \(\lim _{n \rightarrow \infty} \sum_{r=0}^{n-1} f\left(\frac{r}{n}\right) \cdot \frac{1}{n}\).
  • Replace \(\left(\frac{r}{n}\right)\) by x, \(\frac{1}{n}\) by dx, and Σ by ∫, we get the integral ∫ f (x) dx in place of above series.
  • The lower limit of this integral = lim \(\lim _{n \rightarrow \infty}\left(\frac{r}{n}\right)_{r=0}\) r is least value in this case r = 0.
  • Upper limit = \(\lim _{n \rightarrow \infty}\left(\frac{r}{n}\right)_{r=n-1}\) r is greatest values in this case r = n -1.
