In calculus, and more generally in mathematical analysis, integration by parts is a rule that transforms the integral of products of functions into other (ideally simpler) integrals. The rule arises from the product rule of differentiation.

If u = f(x), v = g(x), and the differentials du = f '(xdx and dv = g'(xdx, then integration by parts states that

Rule

Suppose f(x) and g(x) are two continuously differentiable functions. The product rule states

Integrating both sides gives

Rearranging terms

From the above one can derive the integration by parts rule, which states that, given an interval with endpoints a and b,
