How to Integrate It

Book description

While differentiating elementary functions is merely a skill, finding their integrals is an art. This practical introduction to the art of integration gives readers the tools and confidence to tackle common and uncommon integrals. After a review of the basic properties of the Riemann integral, each chapter is devoted to a particular technique of elementary integration. Thorough explanations and plentiful worked examples prepare the reader for the extensive exercises at the end of each chapter. These exercises increase in difficulty from warm-up problems, through drill examples, to challenging extensions which illustrate such advanced topics as the irrationality of π and e, the solution of the Basel problem, Leibniz's series and Wallis's product. The author's accessible and engaging manner will appeal to a wide audience, including students, teachers and self-learners. The book can serve as a complete introduction to finding elementary integrals, or as a supplementary text for any beginning course in calculus.

Reviews

'Each chapter of this book starts with a quote, then a little motivating introduction or example, followed by a definition, a rule or some properties, then a wealth of practical examples and exercises which range in difficulty. … The chapters concerned with the integration techniques are finely written: they are short with minimal theoretical explanation, good practical rules, and a great number of examples and exercises. Students and teachers can find a lot of interesting things to learn or use. … This book is a very good introduction to the techniques of integration. It is not a theoretical book on integration; indeed, most of it can be well understood by pre-university students who are learning integral calculus.'

'This is a book for those who love to integrate, especially indefinite integrals … Plenty of exercises, both routine and challenging, are included.'
