Integration using partial fractions 1

Sometimes the integral of an algebraic fraction can be found by first expressing the algebraic fraction as the sum of its partial fractions. In this unit we will illustrate this idea. We will see that it is also necessary to draw upon a wide variety of other techniques such as completing the square, integration by substitution, using standard forms, and so on.

Integration using partial fractions 2

In this unit we are going to look at how we can integrate some more algebraic fractions. We shall concentrate on the case where the denominator of the fraction involves an irreducible quadratic factor. The case where all the factors of the denominator are linear has been covered in the first unit on integration using partial fractions.
