# Difference between revisions of "Integration by parts"

One of the methods for calculating integrals. It consists in representing an integral of an expression of the form by an integral of . For a definite integral the formula of integration by parts is

 (1)

It is applicable under the assumptions that , and their derivatives , are continuous on .

The analogue of (1) for an indefinite integral is

 (2)

The analogue of (1) for a multiple integral is

 (3)

Here is a domain in with smooth (or at least piecewise-smooth) boundary ; ; and is the angle between the -axis and the outward normal to . Formula (3) holds if, e.g., , and their first-order partial derivatives are continuous on . If the integrals in (3) are understood as Lebesgue integrals, then the formula is true if and belong to a Sobolev space: , for any with .
