No errors.

I think you should incorporate some definite integrals later, when you finish working on pages on indefinite integration.

The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't.

In the pipeline. Soon.

Hi MIF;

Thanks for the page.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

hi MathsIsFun,

Brain low on CHO at the moment.  I'll post a comment tomorrow when I've got both brain cells working.

Hi MathsIsFun,

Neat page. I haven't noticed any error. Thanks!

That would imply you have only two brain cells!

That's right, Stefy.  Usually they take it in turns to run things, but, for hard questions I use them both.

hi MathsIsFun,

I've used substitution for years, but never seen it defined that way.  Had to look up in my old maths text book and sure enough that's what it says too, except in Shakespearean English, of course.

Do you want some more examples?

Here's a couple.  You'll have to translate them from my layout to yours.

substitute x = sin (u)  => dx/du = cos (u)

substitute x = tan(u)  =>  dx/du = sec^2(x)

And thanks for the examples (nicely formatted too).
