Integration with Fractions
In This Chapter
- Completing the square
- Integration by partial fractions
- Working with nonrepeated linear factors
- Repeated linear factors
- Understanding irreducible quadratic factors
This is the last of the chapters on integration techniques. (Although Chapter 9 does deal with integration and issues with infinity.) In this chapter, we’ll study how to work with integrands that take particular fractional forms and transform them into manageable integrands. This would be a good time for you to look back at Chapter 1 and the process of dismantling fractional expressions.
We’ll finish the chapter with a number of ...
