Defin it ion .
Let ) (x | be the primitive or anti-derivative of a function f(x) defined on [a, b] i.e., ) ( )] ( [ x f x

definite integral of f(x) over [a, b] is denoted by

dx x f ) ( and is defined as )] ( ) ( [ a b | | i.e.,

a
a b dx x f ) ( ) ( ) ( | | .
This is also called Newton Leibnitz formula.
The numbers a and b are called the limits of integration, a is called t he lower limit and b the upper limit.
The interval [a, b] is called the interval of integration. The interval [a, b] is also known as range of integration.

In the above definition it does not matter which anti-derivative is used t o evaluate t he definite integral, because if

In other words, to evaluate the definite integral there is no need to keep the constant of integration.
Every definite int egral has a unique value.

Not e : Property (3) is useful when ) (x f is not continuous in [a, b] because we can break up the integral
into several integrals at the points of discontinuity so that the function is continuous in the sub-
intervals.
The expression for ) (x f changes at the end points of each of the sub-interval. You might at times
be puzzled about the end points as limits of integration. You may not be sure for x = 0 as the limit
of the first integral or the next one. In fact, it is immaterial, as the area of the line is always zero.
Therefore, even if you write , ) 2 1 (
0
1
dx x
}

whereas 0 is not included in its domain it is deemed to


be understood that you are approaching x = 0 from the left in the first integral and from right in
the second integral. Similarly for x = 1.
