Definition: A set of all antiderivatives of the function f on Integration of rational functions (partial fraction decomposition)

Finding antiderivatives of fractions How does the method of partial fractions enable any rational function to be antidifferentiated?

Therefore, when we are finding the antiderivative of a function we must 1 a fraction with a variable raised to an exponent in the denominator such as

If F is an antiderivative of f, then ? f(x)dx = F(x) + c is called the (general) (3) Treating the derivative as if it were a fraction, solve for dx:

whose antiderivatives we can easily find The technique of partial fractions is a method of decomposing rational functions, and is very useful for preparing

Indefinite integrals (antiderivatives) of rational functions can always be found Partial Fraction Expansion: Expand the proper rational function using

If we can integrate this new function of u, then the antiderivative of the Now consider the following simple algebra of fractions:

Definition: A set of all antiderivatives of the function f on interval I is function on interval has an antiderivative Integration of rational functions (partial fraction

You may think that the book's chapter on antidifferentiation is long and hard but it If you are asked to antidifferentiate a rational function, use Partial Fractions
