Integration By Substitution
1) This is the chain rule in reverse. 
2)Inspect the integrand for the appearance of f(x) and f'(x), then state: 
u=f(x) 
<u=f'(x) <x, then substitute. 
Example:
u=1+x^{2} <u=2x <x or<u=x <x Substitute: Now substitute the original expression: 
Linear Substitutions




Integration By Parts/Tabular Integration
This method is useful for some products, logarithms and inverse trigonometric functions.
The fomula may be expressed in two ways:


Notice that one part is chosen to integrate and the other part is chosen to differentiate.
Example:
#x
sin(x) <x
u=x <v= sin(x) <x <u=(1) <x v=cos(x) x cos(x)#cos(x) <x x cos(x)+sin(x)

l'Hospital's Rule
Some limits are hard to evaluate directly. When you try, you may end up with an Indeterminate Form like one of these seven types: 0/0, \/\, 0*\, 0^{0}, \^{0}, 1^{\}, \\.
In the above, \ may be replaced by \. Ex. 0*(\) is indeterminate but \+\ isn't.
l'Hospital's Rule lets us find limits of indeterminate forms of the first two types. The rest are handled by converting them to one of the first two (creating a quotient) and then applying l'Hospital's Rule.
BE CERTAIN you are dealing with an indeterminate form before applying the Rule or it won't work. l'Hospital's Rule allows us to calculate lim [f'(x)/g'(x)] instead of lim [f(x)/g(x)] under certain conditions.
1)
Case 0/0 where
If , where L is finite, \, or \, then . 
2)
Case \/\ where
The conclusion is the same as for above (Case 0/0). 
Sometimes, you need to apply the Rule more than once in a problem. The rule also works for lefthand and righthand limits and for limits as x approaches \ or \.
Take This has the form 0*(\). 
We can't apply l'Hospital's Rule directly, so we rewrite it as: 
Now the form is . 
Now apply l'Hospital's Rule: 
In dealing with the three indeterminate forms with exponents, (0^{0}, \^{0}, 1^{\}), We need to use logarithms.
has the form 1^{\}. 
So what does lny approach as x approaches \? 
has the form \*0, so rewrite it to 0/0 form: 
Apply l'Hospital's Rule: 
Remember: you're NOT applying the quotient rule! 
So 
e^{3} is the answer.

Improper Integrals
For a continuous function x>or=a, the improper integral is defined:

For x>=0, think of the area under the curve to the right of x=a.

1) If the limit exists and is finite, the integral converges.
2) If the limit is not finite or doesnt exist, the integral diverges.

So the area under the curve is infinite.
Notice that for this function, the volume of the solid of rotation is finite!

Now suppose that f is continuous for x<or=b. The improper integral is:


The integral is the area under the curve.
We Define:

Only if both integrals on the right converge. If either integral on the right diverges, the integral on the left diverges.

A vertical asymptote occurs at x=b in this example:


If the asymptote is at x=a, you get:


Although it is not being evaluated at infinity for x, the following is another example of an improper integral:


Solving using integration by parts gives a value of approx. .6137.
