# Methods of Integration

By M Bourne

Image source: Akash_k.

This chapter explores some of the techniques for finding more complicated integrals. (If you need to go back to basics, see the Introduction to Integration.)

By studying the techniques in this chapter, you will be able to solve a greater variety of applied calculus problems.

Some of the techniques may look a bit scary at first sight, but they are just the opposite of the basic differentiation formulas and transcendental differentiation formulas.

Also, the methods in this chapter are based on the General Power Formula for Integration which we met before.

Good luck!

We begin with a fundamental technique, the General Power Formula »
