Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Investigate a straightforward technique for finding antiderivatives, called integration by substitution. Based on the chain rule, it enables you to convert a difficult problem into one that's easier to solve by using the variable u to represent a more complicated expression.
