Here's a quick look at the examples and solved problems which we will learn to solve in this tutorial - More of integrals involving decomposition into partial fractions, more complex substitutions and transformations
These are the functions which we will integrate (with respect to dx ). Partial Fractions is one of the topics which we pay special attention to, in this tutorial. Apart from using partial fractions, we also show how interesting substitutions can simplify our task. For example in case 2 we make the substitution x2 = y, in case 3 we make the substitution x2 + 1 = y and in case 4 we make the substitution x = tan θ.
These are the functions we will integrate :
