A "recipe book" with many valuable little-known integration techniques
Written with an accessible and easy-to-follow style by acclaimed popular science author and engineering professor Paul Nahin
Includes rarely-taught problem solving techniques including Feynman's favorite, differentiation under the integral
With worked-out and thoroughly explained practice problems
What’s the point of calculating definite integrals since you can’t possibly do them all?
What makes doing the specific integrals in this book of value aren’t the specific answers we’ll obtain, but rather the methods we’ll use in obtaining those answers; methods you can use for evaluating the integrals you will encounter in the future.
This book is written in a light-hearted manner for students who have completed the first year of college or high school AP calculus, and have just a bit of exposure to the concept of a differential equation. Every result is fully derived. If you are fascinated by definite integrals, then this is a book for you.
