Parallel to Post 3, we have Rule in Leibniz's notations

d∫=nothing, or you can delete them together

∫d=nothing, but you should add C at the end

Leibniz claimed his notations (d∫)and using them to form rules such as

d(uv)=udv+vdu could simplify the algebra. So they maybe an alternative for you.

**Arc Length**

The length of a curve y = f(x) from x = a to x = b is given by

If the curve is represented parametrically by x = f(t) and y = g(t), then the length of the curve from t = a to t = b is given by

In polar coordinates with r = f(θ), the length of the curve from θ = α to θ = β is given by

**Iterated Integrals**

If the double integral of f(x, y) over a region R bounded by f[sub]1[/sub](x) ≤ y ≤ f[sub]2[/sub](x), a ≤ x ≤ b exists, then we may write

This may be extended to triple integrals and beyond.

**Transformations of Multiple Integrals**

If (u, v) are the curvilinear coordinates of a point related to Cartesian coordinates by the transformation equations x = f(u, v), y = g(u, v) which map the region R to R' and G(u, v) = F(f(u, v), g(u, v)) then

This may be extended to triple integrals and beyond.

integral of cot(x)= -cosec^2(x)+c but integral of cot(x)=log(sin(x))+c why do we have two results for the integration of the same function? @ganesh

I agree with you but

gourish wrote:

so he was integrating not differentiating.
