Antiderivative –
 Definition :A function ∅(x) is called the antiderivative (or an integral) of a function f(x) of ∅(x)’ = f(x).
 Example : x^{4}/4 is an antiderivative of x^{3} because (x^{4}/4)’ = x^{3}.
In general, if ∅(x) is antiderivative of a function f(x) and C is a constant.Then, {∅(x)+C}' = ∅(x) = f(x).
Indefinite Integrals –
 Definition :Let f(x) be a function. Then the family of all ist antiderivatives is called the indefinite integral of a function f(x) and it is denoted by ∫f(x)dx.
The symbol ∫f(x)dx is read as the indefinite integral of f(x) with respect to x.
Thus ∫f(x)dx= ∅(x) + C.
Thus, the process of finding the indefinite integral of a function is called integration of the function.

 Integration by Substitution :
 Definition –The method of evaluating the integral by reducing it to standard form by proper substitution is called integration by substitution.
If f(x) is a continuously differentiable function, then to evaluate the integral of the form∫g(f(x))f(x)dx
we substitute f(x)=t and f(x)’dx=dt.
This reduces the integral to the form∫g(t)dt
 Examples :
 Example 1.Evaluate the ∫e^{2x3}dx
 Solution
Let 2x3=t => dx=dt/2 ∫e^{2x3}dx = (∫e^{t}dx)/2 = (∫e^{t})/2 = ((e^{2x3})/2)+C
 Example 2.Evaluate the ∫sin(ax+b)cos(ax+b)dx
 Solution
Let ax+b=t => dx=dt/a; ∫sin(ax+b)cos(ax+b)dx = (∫sin(t)cos(t)dt)/a = (∫sin(2t)dt)/2a = (cos(2t))/4a = (cos(2ax+2b)/4a)+C

 Integration by Partial Fractions :
 Partial Fractions :
If f(x) and g(x) are two polynomial functions, then f(x)/g(x) defines a rational function of x.
If degree of f(x) < degree of g(x), then f(x)/g(x) is a proper rational function of x.
If degree of f(x) > degree of g(x), then f(x)/g(x) is an improper rational function of x.
If f(x)/g(x) is an improper rational function, we divide f(x) by g(x) so that the rational function can be represented as ∅(x) + (h(x)/g(x)).Now h(x)/g(x) is an proper rational function.
Any proper rational function can be expressed as the sum of rational functions, each having a simple factor of g(x).Each such fraction is called partial fraction .  Cases in Partial Fractions :
 Case 1.
When g(x) = (xa_{1})(xa_{2})(xa_{3})….(xa_{n}), then we assume thatf(x)/g(x) = (A_{1}/(xa_{1}))+(A_{2}/(xa_{2}))+(A_{3}/(xa_{3}))+....(A_{n}/(xa_{n}))

Case 2.
When g(x) = (xa)^{k}(xa_{1})(xa_{2})(xa_{3})
….(xa_{r}),
then we assume thatf(x)/g(x) = (A_{1}/(xa)^{1})+(A_{2}/(xa)^{2})+(A_{3}/(xa)^{3}) +....(A_{k}/(xa)^{k})+(B_{1}/(xa_{1}))+(B_{2}/(xa_{2}))+(B_{3}/(xa_{3})) +....(B_{r}/(xa_{r}))
 Case 1.
 Examples :
 Example 1.∫(x1)/((x+1)(x2))dx
 Solution
Let (x1)/((x+1)(x2))= (A/(x+1))+(B/(x2)) => x1 = A(x2)+B(x+1)
Putting x2 = 0, we get
B = 1/3
Putting x+1 = 0, we get
A = 2/3
Substituting the values of A and B, we get
(x1)/((x+1)(x2))= ((2/3)/(x+1))+((1/3)/(x2)) ∫((2/3)/(x+1))+((1/3)/(x2))dx = ((2/3)∫(1/(x+1))dx)+((1/3)∫(1/(x2))dx) = ((2/3)logx+1)+((1/3)logx2)+C
 Example 2.∫(cos(x))/((2+sin(x))(3+4sin(x)))dx
 Solution
Let I = ∫(cos(x))/((2+sin(x))(3+4sin(x)))dx
Putting sin(x) = t and cos(x)dx = dt, we get
I = ∫dt/((2+t)(3+4t)) Let 1/((2+t)(3+4t))= (A/(2+t))+(B/(3+4t)) => 1 = A(3+4t)+B(2+t)
Putting 3+4t = 0, we get
B = 4/5
Putting 2+t = 0, we get
A = 1/5
Substituting the values of A and B, we get
1/((2+t)(3+4t)) = ((1/5)/(2+t))+((4/5)/(3+4t)) I = (∫((1/5)/(2+t))dt)+(∫((4/5)/(3+4t))dt) = ((1/5)log2+t)+((1/5)log3+4t)+C = ((1/5)log2+sin(x))+((1/5)log3+4sin(x))+C
