# FUTURE VALUE OF AN INCOME FLOW

Consider a stream of income transferred
continuously in an account in which it earns
interest over a specified amount of time. The
future value of the income stream is the total
amount (money transferred + interest) that is
accumulated during the specific time period.

Suppose that money is transferred
continuously into an account over a time
period 0 ≤t ≤T at a rate f(t) and the account
earns interest at the annual rate r
compounded continuously. Then the FV of the
income stream over the term T is :

If the prevailing annual interest rate reeemains fixed at 5% compounded continuously over the next 5 years.

The second costs \$4000 and is estimated to generate income at the constant rate of f 2 ( t )=4000 dollars per year .

Lecture7 Integration by Parts This is a technique based on the product rule of differentiation. We know that if u and v are differentiable functions of x. then d dv du ( uv )=u + v dx dx dx Integrating both sides with respect to x we get d dv du ∫ dx ( uv ) dx=∫ u dx dx+∫ v dx dx And uv=∫ u dv +∫ vdu So ∫ u dv=uv −∫ vdu Which is the formula for integration by parts. .

So let u=x∧dv =e 4x du=1.Steps to follow:  Choose functions u and dv so that u is easy to differentiate and dv is easy to integrate. 4x dx 4x Both x∧e are easy to differentiate but x becomes simpler after differentiation.  Substitute in the formula and integrate.  Add C at the end of computation.

Here lnx has a simpler derivative so we choose u = lnx and dv = x^2 dx Let u = lnx. Both x and √ x+5 are easy to integrate but the function x has an easier derivative.Find ∫ x √ x +5 dx 2.1 . Then dv=x dx 2 1 x3 du= dx∧v= x 3 .
