CHAPTER I

CONCERNING THE INTEGRATION OF RATIONAL DIFFERENTIAL FORMULAS DEFINITION 40. The formula of a differential is rational, when the differential dx of the variable x of which the function is sought is multiplied by a rational function of x; or if X designates a rational function of x, this formula Xdx of the differential is said to be rational. COROLLARY 1 41. Hence in this chapter a function of x is sought of this kind, which if it should be put as y, in order that to X, so that

dy dx

dy dx

is equal to a rational function of x, or with such a function put equal

= X.

COROLLARY 2 42. Hence a function of x of this kind is sought, of which the differential is equal to Xdx; hence the integral of this, which now is accustomed to be indicated by Xdx , provides

∫

the function sought. COROLLARY 3 43. But if P should be a function of x of this kind, so that the differential of this is dP = Xdx, since the quantity P + C likewise is differential, the complete integral of the proposed formula Xdx is P + C [, for some arbitrary constant C.] SCHOLION 1 44. Questions of this kind are referred to in the first part of the first book, in which functions of the single variable x are sought from a given relation of the differentials of the first degree. It is evident that if the function sought is equal to y and

dy dx

= p, it is

required to prevail, in order that for some proposed equation between the three quantities x, y and p, from this the natural form of the function y is found, or an equation between x and y, with the letter p elicited. But the question thus proposed in general is considered to outdo the analytical powers so far, so that at no time can a solution be expected.

EULER'S INSTITUTIONUM CALCULI INTEGRALIS VOL. 1 Part I, Section I,Chapter I. page 24 Therefore our strengths are to be exercised in the simpler cases, among which the case Translated and annotated by Ian Bruce.

occurs, in which p is equal to some function of x, for example X, so that

dy dx

= X or

∫

dy = Xdx and thus the integral y = Xdx is required, as we arrange in the first section. Now this case extends widely to various natural forms of the function X and also it is involved in many more difficult cases, from which we put in place only questions to be resolved in this chapter, in which that function X is rational, and then to be progressing to these irrational functions. Hence this part is subdivided conveniently into two parts, in the first of which the integration of the simple formulas, in which p =

dy dx

is equal to a

function of x only, is to be treated, but in the other it is appropriate to give an account of the integration, when the equation proposed is some function of x, y and p. And since in these two sections and chiefly in the first, most is an elaboration of the geometers, that occupy the greater part of the whole work. SCHOLION 2 45. But first the principles of integration are to be desired from the differential calculus, and in the same way as the principles of division from multiplication, and the principles of the extraction of roots from an account of raising to powers, are accustomed to be taken. Since therefore, if a magnitude to be differentiated depends on several parts, such as P + Q – R, the differential of this is dP + dQ – dR, thus in turn, if the formula of the differential depends on several parts as Pdx +Qdx – Rdx, the integral is

∫ Pdx + ∫ Qdx – ∫ Rdx obviously from the integrals of the individual parts separately. Then, since the differential of the magnitude aP is adP, the integral of the differential formula aPdx is a Pdx ,

∫

clearly as the differential formula is multiplied by that constant magnitude, the integral must be multiplied by the same. Thus if the formula of the differentials is aPdx + bQdx + cRdx, whatever functions of x are designated by P, Q, R, the integral is

∫

∫

∫

a Pdx + b Qdx + c Rdx , thus in order that the integration is to be put in place of the forms Pdx, Qdx and Rdx, and thus the above must be increased by the addition of an arbitrary constant C, in order that the complete integral is obtained. PROBLEM 1 46. To find the function of x, in order that the differential of this is equal to ax n dx , or to integrate the differential formula ax n dx .

SOLUTION Since the differential of the power x is mx m −1dx , there is in turn m

∫ mx

dx = m x m −1dx = x m

∫

and thus

∫x

dx = 1 x m ; m

on making m – 1 = n or m = n +1; there becomes

∫ x dx = n1+1 x n

n +1

and a x n dx = na+1 x n +1 .

∫

From which the completed integral of the proposed differential formula is a x n +1 + C , n +1

the reason or from which thus is apparent, because the differential actually is equal to

ax n dx . And this integration always has a place, whatever number is attributed to the exponent n, either positive or negative, either an integer or a fraction, or even irrational. Hence a single case is excepted, in which the exponent n = –1 or it is proposed to integrate this formula adx . Now in the differential calculus I have shown, if lx denotes x

the hyperbolic logarithm of x, the differential of this is equal to dx , from which in turn x

we can conclude that

∫ dxx = lx

and

∫ adxx = alx .

Whereby with an arbitrary constant added the complete integral of the formula adx is x

equal to

alx + C= lxa+ C, that also on putting lc for C can thus be expressed: lcxa. COROLLARY 1 47. Hence the integral of the differential formulas ax n dx is always algebraic with the only excepted case, in which n = –1 and the integral is expressed by logarithms, which are to be referred to as transcendent functions. Obviously, it is given by

∫ adxx = alx + C = lcx

n

COROLLARY 2 48. If the exponent n denotes a positive number, then the following integrations are to be expressed properly, in as much as they are especially easy:

∫ adx = ax + C, ∫ axdx = a2 xx + C , ∫ ax dx = a3 x + C, 3 4 4 5 5 6 ∫ ax dx = a4 x + C, ∫ ax dx = a5 x + C, ∫ ax dx = a6 x + C. 2

from which these simpler cases can be noted :

SCHOLIUM1 53. Nevertheless I have decided in this chapter to treat only rational functions, yet these irrationals can still be presented at once, as likewise they can be treated as rationals. Hence the remaining more complicated formulas are able to be integrated also, if functions of a certain variable z are taken for x. Just as if we put x = f +gz, then dx = gdz; whereby if for a we write ag , there is had

∫ adz ( f + gz )

SCHOLIUM 2 54. Here another significant property deserves to be noted. Since here a function y is dy

sought, in order that dy = ax n dx , if we put dx = p , this relation is obtained p = ax n , from which the function y must be investigated. Therefore since

y = na+1 x n +1 + C , on account of ax n = p there is also px

y = n +1 + C and thus we have the case, where the relation of the differentials through a certain equation is proposed between x, y and p and now we know for each to be satisfied by the

equation y = na+1 x n +1 + C . Now this no further is the complete integral for the relation px

held in the equation y = n +1 + C , but only a particular one, because the new integral does not involve a constant, which is not in the relation of the differentials. Moreover the complete integral is y = naD x n +1 + C +1

involving a new constant D; hence there becomes dy = aDx n = p dx

and thus

px

y = n +1 + C.

If this is not relevant to the present situation, yet it is helpful to be noted.

PROBLEM 2 55. To find a function of x, of which the differential is equal to Xdx, with X denoting some rational integer function of x, or to definite the integral Xdx .

SOLUTION Since X is a function of x of the rational integers [e. g. a polynomial], by necessity it contained in this form :

X = α + β x + γ x 2 + δ x3 + ε x 4 + etc.,

where the exponents α , β ,ν etc. are able to signify both positive and negative numbers as well as fractions, provided it is noted, if there should be λ = −1 , then there becomes

∫ αxdx = α lx , which is the single case to be referred to the order of transcendent functions. PROBLEM 3 56. If X denotes some rational fractional function of x, to describe the method, with the help of which it is convenient to investigate the integral of the formula Xdx.

Therefore let

X=M N

SOLUTION , thus in order that M and N are to become integral functions of x,

and in the first place it is to be considered, whether the sum of the powers of x in the numerator M is either greater or less than in the denominator N, in which case from the , integral [i. e. whole] parts can be elicited by division; the integration of fraction M N which can be obtained without difficulty, and the whole calculation is reduced to a , in which the sum of the powers of x in the numerator M is less fraction of this kind M N than in the denominator N. Then all the factors of the denominator N itself are sought, both simple if they are real, as well as real squares, clearly in turn of the simple squares of [complex conjugate] imaginary factors arising ; likewise it is to be considered whether these factors are all unequal or not ; for indeed with the equality of the factors another method for the into simple fractions has to be put in place, since they arise resolution of the fraction M N from the factors of individual fractions, of which the sum of the fractions proposed is . Certainly from the simple factor a + bx the fraction arises : equal to M N A a + bx

;

if two are equal or the denominator N should have the factor (a + bx)2 , hence there arises the fractions : A B ; 2 + a +bx (a + bx )

EULER'S INSTITUTIONUM CALCULI INTEGRALIS VOL. 1 Part I, Section I,Chapter I. page 30

moreover from the factor (a + bx) of this kind these three fractions arise: A (a + bx )3

+

B (a +bx ) 2

+ a +Cbx :

and thus henceforth. But a double factor, the form of which is aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx , unless the two should be equal, gives a fraction of the form A+ Bx ; aa − 2 abxcos .ζ + bbxx but if the N involves two equal factors of this kind, from this the two partial fractions of this kind arise : A+ Bx C + Dx 2 + aa − 2abxcos .ζ +bbxx

( aa −2abxcos.ζ +bbxx )

but if the cube, thus ( aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx ) should be a factor of the denominator N, 3

from that there arises the three partial fractions : A+ Bx 3 2 cos.ζ +bbxx ) aa abx − (

must be shown, indeed for the case n = 1, then for the cases n = 2, n = 3, n = 4, etc. SCHOLIUM 1 60. Unless we want to avoid imaginary quantities, the whole calculation now can be completed from what has been treated; for with the denominator N resolved into all its simple factors, they are either real or imaginary, the proposed fraction always can be resolved into partial fractions of this form aAdx or of this Adx n ; since the integrals of + bx

( a +bx )

dx can be obtained. But then as which can be shown, the integral of the whole form M N

here there might be some inconvenience the pairs of imaginary parts [i. e. complex conjugates] thus are joined together, in order that a real expression results, which nevertheless completes the nature of the integration absolutely. SCHOLION 2 61. Certainly here it is to be conceded that we postulate the resolution of an integral function into factors, even if the algebra so far has by no means led to that [conclusion], in order that this resolution actually can be put in place. But this is accustomed to be postulated in analysis everywhere, in order that, as the longer we progress, those things which are left behind, even if they have not been explored well enough, we assume as known ; evidently it suffices here that all the factors are able to be assigned by the method of approximation, however close they can be assigned. In a like manner in the

EULER'S INSTITUTIONUM CALCULI INTEGRALIS VOL. 1 Part I, Section I,Chapter I. page 32 integral calculus the longer we proceed, the integrals of all the formulas of the form Xdx, whatever function of x may be signified by the letter X, we will consider as known and by us to be the most outstanding, if we can prevail to reduce more obscure integrals to these forms ; this also disturbs nothing in practical use, since the values of such formulas Xdx are allowed to be assigned almost to any extend you wish, as we shall show in Translated and annotated by Ian Bruce.

∫

what follows. Otherwise about these integrals, the resolution of the denominator N into its factors is absolutely necessary, therefore in order that the individual factors are present in the expression of the integral ; there are just a few cases and these are especially easy, in which we are able to do without that resolution ; just as if this formula is proposed x n −1dx 1+ x n

it is at once apparent on putting x n = ν that it goes into

(

)

dν , the integral of n(1+ν )

which is 1n l (1 + ν ) = 1n l 1 + x n , where there was no need for the resolution of the factors.

Now cases of this kind are so evident in themselves, so that no particular explanation of these may be needed. PROBLEM 4

62. To find the integral of this formula

∫

( A+ Bx )dx

y = aa − 2abxcos.ζ +bbxx

SOLUTION Since the numerator depends on the two parts Adx+Bxdx, this latter term Bxdx can be removed in the following manner. Since there arises l ( aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx ) =

−2 abdxcos .ζ + 2bbxdx

∫ aa −2abxcos.ζ +bbxx

this equation is to be multiplied by 2Bbb and taken away from the proposed equation ; for thus there is produced y − B l ( aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx ) = 2bb

SCHOLIUM 1 67. Here it comes about entirely worthy to be noted, that in the case ζ = 0 , in which the denominator aa − 2abx + bbxx becomes a square, the account of the angle disappears from the integral.

, because the arc of the infinitely small tangent itself is

equal to a −bx , and thus this part becomes algebraic. On account of which there becomes

( A+ Bx )dx B a −bx ( Ab + Ba ) x ∫ ( a−bx )2 = bb l a + ab( a −bx ) + Const., the truth of which is obvious from the preceding; for there is

( A+ Bx ) − B + Ab + Ba 2 = 2 ( a −bx ) b( a −bx ) b( a −bx ) Now there becomes B la = B l a −bx , = B l ( a − bx ) − bb ∫ b(−aBdx bb a −bx ) bb

if indeed each integration is thus determined, as in the case x = 0 the integrals vanish. SCHOLION 2 68. In a similar manner, which we have used here, if in the formula with the differential the sum of the powers of x in the numerator M shall be one degree less than fraction Mdx N

in the denominator N, also that boundary can be lifted. For let the equations be M = Ax n −1 + Bx n − 2 + Cx n −3 + etc.

and N = α x n + β x n −1 + γ x n − 2 + etc.

and there is put Mdx = dy . Now since there shall be N dN = nα x n −1dx + ( n − 1) dxβ x n − 2 + ( n − 2 ) dxγ x n −3 + etc.

Therefore in this manner all the differential formulas of the fractions can be reduced by that, so that the sum of the powers of x in the numerator shall be less by two or more degrees than in the denominator. PROBLEM 5

Now in the first formula the letters C and D thus are to be defined, in order that the numerator becomes divisible by X ; hence [see * below] it is necessary for the numerator to be equal to −2nDXdx , [i.e. the numerator becomes −2nDdx ( aa − 2abx cos .ζ + bbxx ) = −2nDXdx ] from which we arrive at A + 2nCab cos .ζ = −2nDaa

and

EXAMPLE 1 (A+ Bx )dx

74. With the proposed differential formula α + β x +γ xx , to define the integral of this. Since in the numerator of the variable x there is fewer dimensions than in the denominator, this fraction includes no integral parts. Hence the nature of the denominator must be assessed carefully, whether it should have two real simple factors or not, and in the first case, if the factors are equal ; from which we have three cases to be explained. 1. The denominator has both factors equal and let it be equal to (a + bx)2 and the fraction

(A+ Bx )dx (a +bx ) 2

is resolved into these two : Ab − Ba b (a + bx ) 2

+ b(aB+bx ) ,

from which there is produced

∫

(A+ Bx )dx = bbBa(a−+Ab + B l (a + bx) + Const. ; bx ) bb (a +bx )2

if the integral is thus to be determined, so that it vanishes on putting x = 0, then there is found :

∫

(A+ Bx )dx (a + bx ) 2

( Ab − Ba ) x

B l a + bx . = ab(a +bx ) + bb a

II. If the denominator has two unequal factors and let this be the proposed formula : A+ Bx dx ; and this fraction is resolved into these partial fractions : (a + bx )(f + gx ) Ab − Ba ⋅ dx bf -ag a +bx

Ag − Bf

Putting Ab − Ba b (bf -ag )

= m + n and

in order that the integral becomes ml

there becomes :

( a +bx )( f + gx ) af

f ( a + bx ) ; a ( f + gx )

hence there becomes :

III. Let the simple factors of the denominator both be imaginary, in which case there is had aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx ; now as we have treated this case above [§ 64], it becomes

In the final chapter of the Institutionum Calculi Differentialis we have found the m −1 is to be resolved, on taking π for the simple fractions, into which this fraction x dx n

where for k it is agreed to substitute all the numbers 1, 2, 3 etc., until 2k - 1 begins to surpass the number n . [See the notes at the end of this translation.] Hence this form is multiplied by dx and since it is to be compared with our general form

then a = 1, b = 1, ζ =

also chiefly it is agreed to be noted always, since dx is put equal to a rational function of x, the function of y, unless it is algebraic, does not involve other transcending functions in addition to logarithms and angles ; where indeed here it is to be observed always that hyperbolic logarithms are to be understood, since the differential of lx in not equal to 1x , unless the hyperbolic logarithm is taken ; but the reduction of these to common logarithms is very simple, thus so that hence the application of the calculus to the practice is not bothered by any impediment. Whereby we may progress to these other cases, in dy

which the formula dx is equal to an irrational function of x, where indeed at first it must be noted, whenever this function by a suitable substitution can be reduced to rationals, the case to be returned to this chapter. Just as if there should be 3 dy = 1+ x 3− xx dx,

it is clear on putting x = z , from which there arises dx = 6 z 5dz , to become

APPENDICES FROM INTRODUCTIO IN ANALYSIN INFINITORUM CH.2 & INSTITUTIONES CALCULI DIFFERENTIALIS CH.18,Part 2. In Ch. 9 § 145 of the Introductio..., Euler proceeds as follows : The quadratic p − qz + rzz in the variable z has imaginary roots if 4 pr > qq or

q 2 pr

< 1. Since

the sines and cosines of angles are less than 1, then the formula p − qz + rzz has simple imaginary factors, if

q should be the sine or cosine of some angle. Hence, let 2 pr q 2 pr

= cos .ϕ , or q = 2 pr ⋅ cos .ϕ

and the trinomial p − qz + zz contains the imaginary simple factors. But lest the irrationality should produce any trouble, I assume this form pp − 2 pqz cos .ϕ + qqzz , and the simple imaginary factors of this are these : qz − p cos .ϕ + −1 ⋅ sin .ϕ and qz − p cos .ϕ − −1 ⋅ sin .ϕ .

Where indeed it is apparent, if cos .ϕ = ±1 , then both the factors are equal and real since sin .ϕ = 0 . [In modern terms, we would say that qz − peiϕ

and qz − pe−iϕ are the

(

)

n factors, and powers of z can be expressed in the form z n = r n cos .ϕ ± −1 ⋅ sin .ϕ ]. In

§ 147, Euler assumes DeMoivre's Theorem :

z n = r n cos .nϕ ± −1 ⋅ sin .nϕ , where r = q

In § 150 Euler examines the function a n + z n , and the form of the trinomial factors of p

this factor pp − 2 pqz cos .ϕ + qqzz is to be determined. On putting r = q into the equation, there are produced these two equations : a n = r n cos .nϕ , and 0 = r n sin .nϕ . From the latter equation we must have, for some integer k, nϕ = 2kπ , or nϕ = ( 2k + 1) π ; but in the former equation, we must choose nϕ = ( 2k + 1) π , in order that we have a n − r n = 0 , and hence r = a = q . Hence in the above equation, p = a, q = 1, and ϕ = ( 2k + 1) πn . p

Hence the quadratic factor with conjugate roots of the function a n + z n can be shown to be aa − 2az cos . 2kn+1 π + zz , where k is less than n. Euler goes on to look at numerous cases involving this factorization. The partial fraction reduction quoted above in Examples 2 and 3 comes from the Institutionum...., Part 2, Ch.18, which we now address at length, we take up the story at the end of § 406 to Example 1 of §417 in translation : P , then the values of the factors of the If the rational fraction is expressed by Q denominator can be found from the resolution of the equation Q = 0 , and here we make use of a method involving the differential calculus in order that any simple factors of the denominator can thus be defined. P to have a factor f + gx , 407. Therefore we arrange the denominator Q of the fraction Q

thus so that Q = ( f + gx ) S , and indeed here, neither does S contain in addition the same factor f + gx . Let the simple fraction arising from this factor be equal to f +Agx and the P. complement has a form of this kind VS , thus so that f +Agx + VS = Q P− A = P − f +Agx = P − AS , and thus V = P − AS . Hence there arises : VS = Q f + gx ( f + gx ) S ( f + gx ) S ( f + gx ) Therefore, as V is an integral function of x, it is necessary that P − AS should be divisible

−f

by f + gx ; and therefore, if there is put f + gx = 0 or x = g , then the expression P − AS vanishes, [as f + gx is a factor of P − AS or x =

−f g

is a root of this polynomial].

−f Hence on making x = g , since P − AS = 0 , then A = PS , [for this value of x] as now we ( f + gx ) P , if there is Q have found above. But since S = f + gx , then there arises A = Q −f

put f + gx = 0 or x = g everywhere. Now since in this case both the numerator

( f + gx ) P as well as the denominator Q vanish here, by means of that, which we are about to set out in the investigation of fractions of this kind, then if indeed there is put −f

[One can see that Euler is thinking of the ratio becoming zero on zero when x = g , and so the ratio is to the differential of the numerator to the differential of the denominator. One can see also that the problem is essentially an application of L'Hôpital's Rule : as is well known, in the neighbourhood of a common simple zero x = a of well-behaved functions r and s of x, or a common root of polynomials, the values of the functions at a are represented by their differentials, and it is an easy matter to show that r ( a ) r' ( a ) = x → a s ( a ) s' ( a )

P has a simple factor 408. Therefore if the denominator Q of the proposed fraction Q Pgdx

f + gx , from that there arises the simple fraction f +Agx with A = being present, dQ −f

after everywhere here the value g is put in place of x arising from the equation f + gx = 0 must be substituted. Hence, if Q is not expressed in factors, this division can often be omitted without any bother, particularly if the denominator Q has indefinite exponents, since the value of A can be obtained from the formula

Pgdx dQ

. But if the

denominator now was expressed in factors, thus in order that hence the value of S should be at once apparent, then the other expression is to be preferred, in which we found −f A = PS on putting everywhere equally x = g . And thus for finding the value of A itself

in whatever case that formula can be used, which is seen to be the more convenient and expedient. But we illustrate the use of the new formula with some examples. EXAMPLE 1

Let this fraction be proposed

from the factor of the denominator 1 + x .

Since here Q = 1 + x17 , even if 1 + x is agreed to be a factor of this, yet, if as the first method demands, we wish to divide by that, there is produced S = 1 − x + xx − x3 + ... + x16

Therefore it is more convenient to use the new formula A =

P is equal to V ; then and the complement for the proposed fraction Q S P − ( A + ax ) S

V = ff − 2 fgx cos ϕ + ggxx , from which P − ( A + ax ) S and in addition also PS − A − ax is divisible by

x = g cos ϕ + sin ϕ g −1 or x = g cos ϕ − sin ϕ g −1 414.

Hence therefore a suitable ratio is obtained and here a simple fraction can be formed from whatever the factor of the second power, since the denominator of the proposed denominator is retained in the computation, since we avoid a division, in which the value of the letter S must be defined and which often is more than a little troublesome. P has such a factor Therefore if the denominator Q of the fraction Q

417. But these values are more easily expressed if we determine these factors themselves from the denominator. Therefore let the denominator of the proposed fraction be a + bx n ; of which if the trinomial factor is put in place ff − 2 fgx cos ϕ + ggxx , there will be, as we have shown in the Introductio, a+

bf n bf n sin nϕ = 0 n cosnϕ = 0 and g gn

therefore since sin nϕ = 0 , either nϕ = (2k - 1)π or nϕ = 2kπ ; in the first case then cos nϕ = −1 , in the latter cos nϕ = +1 . Hence if a and b are positive quantities, in the first case only the condition is had, in which there arises a = 1

bf n and hence gn

f = a n and g = b n . But we may retain in place of these irrational quantities the letters f and g or we may put rather a = f n and b = g n , thus in order that the factors of this function are to be found : f n + g n xn . (2 k -1)π , where k can be designated to some positive number, but n indeed numbers for k greater than 2kn-1 are not to be taken, than which return 2kn-1 less n n n

Therefore since ϕ =

ff − 2 fgxcos πn + ggxx

ff − 2 fgxcos 3nπ + ggxx ff − 2 fgxcos 5nπ + ggxx etc, where it is to be noted that if n is an odd number, then this one binomial factor is present, f + gx but if n is an even number then no binomial factor is present. EXAMPLE 1

Therefore if n were an even number, in this way all the simple fractions arise; but if n should be an odd number, on account of the binomial factor f +gx this must be added to the resulting fractions above ±1 − − n m 1 nf g m ( f + gx )

where the sign + prevails, if m is an even number, and conversely for the – sign. If m should be a number greater than n, then to these fractions the above integral parts of this kind must be added Ax m − n + Bx m − 2n + Cx m −3n + Dx m − 4n + etc.,

Formula differentialis rationalis est, quando variabilis x, cuius functio quaeritur, differentiale dx multiplicatur in functionem rationalem ipsius x, seu si X designet functionem rationalem ipsius x, haec formula differentialis Xdx dicitur rationalis.

Quodsi P fuerit eiusmodi functio ipsius x, ut eius differentiale dPsit = Xdx, quoniam. quantitatis P + C idem est differentiale, formulae propositae Xdx integrale completum est P + C. SCHOLION 1 44. Ad libri promi partem priorem huiusmodi referuntur quaestiones, quibus functiones solius variabilis x ex data differentialium primi gradus relatione quaeruntur. Scilicet si

inter ternas quantitates x, y et p inde indoles functionis y seu aequatio inter x et y, elisa littera p, inveniatur. Quaestio autem sic in genere proposita vires Analyseos adeo superare videtur, ut eius solutio nunquam expectari queat. In casibus igitur simplicioribus vires nostrae sunt exercendae, inter quos primum occurrit casus, quo p functioni cuipiam ipsius x, puta X, aequatur, ut sit

Cum igitur, si quantitas differentianda ex pluribus partibus constet ut P + Q – R, eius differentiale sit dP + dQ – dR, ita vicissim, si formula differentialis ex pluribus partibus constet ut Pdx +Qdx – Rdx, integrale erit

A METHOD FOR FINDING FUNCTIONS OF ONE VARIABLE FROM SOME GIVEN RELATION OF THE DIFFERENTIALS OF THE FIRST ORDER FIRST SECTION CONCERNING THE

INTEGRATION OF DIFFERENTIAL FORMULAS.

EULER'S INSTITUTIONUM CALCULI INTEGRALIS VOL. 1 Part I, Section I,Chapter I. page 23

CHAPTER I

CONCERNING THE INTEGRATION OF RATIONAL DIFFERENTIAL FORMULAS DEFINITION 40. The formula of a differential is rational, when the differential dx of the variable x of which the function is sought is multiplied by a rational function of x; or if X designates a rational function of x, this formula Xdx of the differential is said to be rational. COROLLARY 1 41. Hence in this chapter a function of x is sought of this kind, which if it should be put as y, in order that to X, so that

dy dx

dy dx

is equal to a rational function of x, or with such a function put equal

= X.

COROLLARY 2 42. Hence a function of x of this kind is sought, of which the differential is equal to Xdx; hence the integral of this, which now is accustomed to be indicated by Xdx , provides

∫

the function sought. COROLLARY 3 43. But if P should be a function of x of this kind, so that the differential of this is dP = Xdx, since the quantity P + C likewise is differential, the complete integral of the proposed formula Xdx is P + C [, for some arbitrary constant C.] SCHOLION 1 44. Questions of this kind are referred to in the first part of the first book, in which functions of the single variable x are sought from a given relation of the differentials of the first degree. It is evident that if the function sought is equal to y and

dy dx

= p, it is

required to prevail, in order that for some proposed equation between the three quantities x, y and p, from this the natural form of the function y is found, or an equation between x and y, with the letter p elicited. But the question thus proposed in general is considered to outdo the analytical powers so far, so that at no time can a solution be expected.

EULER'S INSTITUTIONUM CALCULI INTEGRALIS VOL. 1 Part I, Section I,Chapter I. page 24 Therefore our strengths are to be exercised in the simpler cases, among which the case Translated and annotated by Ian Bruce.

occurs, in which p is equal to some function of x, for example X, so that

dy dx

= X or

∫

dy = Xdx and thus the integral y = Xdx is required, as we arrange in the first section. Now this case extends widely to various natural forms of the function X and also it is involved in many more difficult cases, from which we put in place only questions to be resolved in this chapter, in which that function X is rational, and then to be progressing to these irrational functions. Hence this part is subdivided conveniently into two parts, in the first of which the integration of the simple formulas, in which p =

dy dx

is equal to a

function of x only, is to be treated, but in the other it is appropriate to give an account of the integration, when the equation proposed is some function of x, y and p. And since in these two sections and chiefly in the first, most is an elaboration of the geometers, that occupy the greater part of the whole work. SCHOLION 2 45. But first the principles of integration are to be desired from the differential calculus, and in the same way as the principles of division from multiplication, and the principles of the extraction of roots from an account of raising to powers, are accustomed to be taken. Since therefore, if a magnitude to be differentiated depends on several parts, such as P + Q – R, the differential of this is dP + dQ – dR, thus in turn, if the formula of the differential depends on several parts as Pdx +Qdx – Rdx, the integral is

∫ Pdx + ∫ Qdx – ∫ Rdx obviously from the integrals of the individual parts separately. Then, since the differential of the magnitude aP is adP, the integral of the differential formula aPdx is a Pdx ,

∫

clearly as the differential formula is multiplied by that constant magnitude, the integral must be multiplied by the same. Thus if the formula of the differentials is aPdx + bQdx + cRdx, whatever functions of x are designated by P, Q, R, the integral is

∫

∫

∫

a Pdx + b Qdx + c Rdx , thus in order that the integration is to be put in place of the forms Pdx, Qdx and Rdx, and thus the above must be increased by the addition of an arbitrary constant C, in order that the complete integral is obtained. PROBLEM 1 46. To find the function of x, in order that the differential of this is equal to ax n dx , or to integrate the differential formula ax n dx .

SOLUTION Since the differential of the power x is mx m −1dx , there is in turn m

dx = m x m −1dx = x m

and thus

dx = 1 x m ; m

∫ x dx = n1+1 x n

n +1

and a x n dx = na+1 x n +1 .

∫

From which the completed integral of the proposed differential formula is a x n +1 + C , n +1

the reason or from which thus is apparent, because the differential actually is equal to

ax n dx . And this integration always has a place, whatever number is attributed to the exponent n, either positive or negative, either an integer or a fraction, or even irrational. Hence a single case is excepted, in which the exponent n = –1 or it is proposed to integrate this formula adx . Now in the differential calculus I have shown, if lx denotes x

the hyperbolic logarithm of x, the differential of this is equal to dx , from which in turn x

we can conclude that

∫ dxx = lx

and

∫ adxx = alx .

Whereby with an arbitrary constant added the complete integral of the formula adx is x

equal to

alx + C= lxa+ C, that also on putting lc for C can thus be expressed: lcxa. COROLLARY 1 47. Hence the integral of the differential formulas ax n dx is always algebraic with the only excepted case, in which n = –1 and the integral is expressed by logarithms, which are to be referred to as transcendent functions. Obviously, it is given by

∫ adxx = alx + C = lcx

n

COROLLARY 2 48. If the exponent n denotes a positive number, then the following integrations are to be expressed properly, in as much as they are especially easy:

∫ adx = ax + C, ∫ axdx = a2 xx + C , ∫ ax dx = a3 x + C, 3 4 4 5 5 6 ∫ ax dx = a4 x + C, ∫ ax dx = a5 x + C, ∫ ax dx = a6 x + C. 2

SCHOLIUM1 53. Nevertheless I have decided in this chapter to treat only rational functions, yet these irrationals can still be presented at once, as likewise they can be treated as rationals. Hence the remaining more complicated formulas are able to be integrated also, if functions of a certain variable z are taken for x. Just as if we put x = f +gz, then dx = gdz; whereby if for a we write ag , there is had

SCHOLIUM 2 54. Here another significant property deserves to be noted. Since here a function y is dy

sought, in order that dy = ax n dx , if we put dx = p , this relation is obtained p = ax n , from which the function y must be investigated. Therefore since

y = na+1 x n +1 + C , on account of ax n = p there is also px

y = n +1 + C and thus we have the case, where the relation of the differentials through a certain equation is proposed between x, y and p and now we know for each to be satisfied by the

equation y = na+1 x n +1 + C . Now this no further is the complete integral for the relation px

held in the equation y = n +1 + C , but only a particular one, because the new integral does not involve a constant, which is not in the relation of the differentials. Moreover the complete integral is y = naD x n +1 + C +1

involving a new constant D; hence there becomes dy = aDx n = p dx

and thus

px

y = n +1 + C.

If this is not relevant to the present situation, yet it is helpful to be noted.

∫ αxdx = α lx , which is the single case to be referred to the order of transcendent functions. PROBLEM 3 56. If X denotes some rational fractional function of x, to describe the method, with the help of which it is convenient to investigate the integral of the formula Xdx.

Therefore let

X=M N

SOLUTION , thus in order that M and N are to become integral functions of x,

and in the first place it is to be considered, whether the sum of the powers of x in the numerator M is either greater or less than in the denominator N, in which case from the , integral [i. e. whole] parts can be elicited by division; the integration of fraction M N which can be obtained without difficulty, and the whole calculation is reduced to a , in which the sum of the powers of x in the numerator M is less fraction of this kind M N than in the denominator N. Then all the factors of the denominator N itself are sought, both simple if they are real, as well as real squares, clearly in turn of the simple squares of [complex conjugate] imaginary factors arising ; likewise it is to be considered whether these factors are all unequal or not ; for indeed with the equality of the factors another method for the into simple fractions has to be put in place, since they arise resolution of the fraction M N from the factors of individual fractions, of which the sum of the fractions proposed is . Certainly from the simple factor a + bx the fraction arises : equal to M N A a + bx

;

if two are equal or the denominator N should have the factor (a + bx)2 , hence there arises the fractions : A B ; 2 + a +bx (a + bx )

EULER'S INSTITUTIONUM CALCULI INTEGRALIS VOL. 1 Part I, Section I,Chapter I. page 30

Translated and annotated by Ian Bruce. 3

moreover from the factor (a + bx) of this kind these three fractions arise: A (a + bx )3

+

B (a +bx ) 2

+ a +Cbx :

and thus henceforth. But a double factor, the form of which is aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx , unless the two should be equal, gives a fraction of the form A+ Bx ; aa − 2 abxcos .ζ + bbxx but if the N involves two equal factors of this kind, from this the two partial fractions of this kind arise : A+ Bx C + Dx 2 + aa − 2abxcos .ζ +bbxx

( aa −2abxcos.ζ +bbxx )

but if the cube, thus ( aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx ) should be a factor of the denominator N, 3

from that there arises the three partial fractions : A+ Bx 3 2 cos.ζ +bbxx ) aa abx − (

Unless we want to avoid imaginary quantities, the whole calculation now can be completed from what has been treated; for with the denominator N resolved into all its simple factors, they are either real or imaginary, the proposed fraction always can be resolved into partial fractions of this form aAdx or of this Adx n ; since the integrals of + bx

dx can be obtained. But then as which can be shown, the integral of the whole form M N

here there might be some inconvenience the pairs of imaginary parts [i. e. complex conjugates] thus are joined together, in order that a real expression results, which nevertheless completes the nature of the integration absolutely. SCHOLION 2 61. Certainly here it is to be conceded that we postulate the resolution of an integral function into factors, even if the algebra so far has by no means led to that [conclusion], in order that this resolution actually can be put in place. But this is accustomed to be postulated in analysis everywhere, in order that, as the longer we progress, those things which are left behind, even if they have not been explored well enough, we assume as known ; evidently it suffices here that all the factors are able to be assigned by the method of approximation, however close they can be assigned. In a like manner in the

EULER'S INSTITUTIONUM CALCULI INTEGRALIS VOL. 1 Part I, Section I,Chapter I. page 32 integral calculus the longer we proceed, the integrals of all the formulas of the form Xdx, whatever function of x may be signified by the letter X, we will consider as known and by us to be the most outstanding, if we can prevail to reduce more obscure integrals to these forms ; this also disturbs nothing in practical use, since the values of such formulas Xdx are allowed to be assigned almost to any extend you wish, as we shall show in Translated and annotated by Ian Bruce.

∫

what follows. Otherwise about these integrals, the resolution of the denominator N into its factors is absolutely necessary, therefore in order that the individual factors are present in the expression of the integral ; there are just a few cases and these are especially easy, in which we are able to do without that resolution ; just as if this formula is proposed x n −1dx 1+ x n

it is at once apparent on putting x n = ν that it goes into

(

)

dν , the integral of n(1+ν )

which is 1n l (1 + ν ) = 1n l 1 + x n , where there was no need for the resolution of the factors.

Now cases of this kind are so evident in themselves, so that no particular explanation of these may be needed. PROBLEM 4

∫

y = aa − 2abxcos.ζ +bbxx

SOLUTION Since the numerator depends on the two parts Adx+Bxdx, this latter term Bxdx can be removed in the following manner. Since there arises l ( aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx ) =

−2 abdxcos .ζ + 2bbxdx

∫ aa −2abxcos.ζ +bbxx

this equation is to be multiplied by 2Bbb and taken away from the proposed equation ; for thus there is produced y − B l ( aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx ) = 2bb

∫ aa −2abxcos.ζ +bbxx

thus in order that only the formula to be integrated remains. For brevity the formula is put in place Bacos .ζ A+ b =C so that this becomes

There is put in place bx − acos.ζ = av sin.ζ and hence dx = adv bsin.ζ from which our formula becomes Cadv sin .ζ :b

agreeable to be the constant to be added, there is produced Arc.tang. a −bx cos .ζ and thus we have

SCHOLIUM 1 67. Here it comes about entirely worthy to be noted, that in the case ζ = 0 , in which the denominator aa − 2abx + bbxx becomes a square, the account of the angle disappears from the integral. Indeed on putting the angle ζ to be infinitely small then there becomes B l a −bx and the other part cos.ζ = 1 and sin .ζ = ζ , from which the logarithmic becomes bb a Ab + Ba Arc.tang. bxζ = ( Ab + Ba ) x abbζ a −bx ab( a −bx )

, because the arc of the infinitely small tangent itself is

bxζ

equal to a −bx , and thus this part becomes algebraic. On account of which there becomes

( A+ Bx )dx B a −bx ( Ab + Ba ) x ∫ ( a−bx )2 = bb l a + ab( a −bx ) + Const., the truth of which is obvious from the preceding; for there is

( A+ Bx ) − B + Ab + Ba 2 = 2 ( a −bx ) b( a −bx ) b( a −bx ) Now there becomes B la = B l a −bx , = B l ( a − bx ) − bb ∫ b(−aBdx bb a −bx ) bb

∫

( Ab + Ba )dx Ab + Ba Ab + Ba ( Ab + Ba ) x = − abb = , 2 bb( a −bx ) ab( a −bx ) b( a −bx )

if indeed each integration is thus determined, as in the case x = 0 the integrals vanish. SCHOLION 2 68. In a similar manner, which we have used here, if in the formula with the differential the sum of the powers of x in the numerator M shall be one degree less than fraction Mdx N

in the denominator N, also that boundary can be lifted. For let the equations be M = Ax n −1 + Bx n − 2 + Cx n −3 + etc.

and N = α x n + β x n −1 + γ x n − 2 + etc.

and there is put Mdx = dy . Now since there shall be N dN = nα x n −1dx + ( n − 1) dxβ x n − 2 + ( n − 2 ) dxγ x n −3 + etc.

then there will be

Therefore in this manner all the differential formulas of the fractions can be reduced by that, so that the sum of the powers of x in the numerator shall be less by two or more degrees than in the denominator. PROBLEM 5

69. The integral formula y=

( A+ Bx )dx

∫ ( aa −2abxcos.ζ +bbxx )

is to be reduced to another like formula, where the power of the denominator is less by one degree.

SOLUTION For the sake of brevity let the formula be aa − 2abxcos.ζ + bbxx = X and there is put

∫X

Now in the first formula the letters C and D thus are to be defined, in order that the numerator becomes divisible by X ; hence [see * below] it is necessary for the numerator to be equal to −2nDXdx , [i.e. the numerator becomes −2nDdx ( aa − 2abx cos .ζ + bbxx ) = −2nDXdx ] from which we arrive at A + 2nCab cos .ζ = −2nDaa

and

B + 2nDab cos .ζ − 2nCbb = 4nDab cos .ζ

or B − 2nCbb = 2nDabcos.ζ and hence 2nCbb ; 2nDa = Bb−cos .ζ but from the former condition there is

2nDa =

− A− 2nCab cos .ζ a

from which equated there arises Ba + Abcos.ζ − 2nCabbsin 2 .ζ = 0

or C=

Ba + Abcos .ζ 2 nabbsin 2 .ζ

,

from which B − 2nCbb =

Ba sin .2 ζ − Ba − Ab cos .ζ a sin .2 ζ

thus so that there is found D=

=

− Ab − Ba cos .ζ . 2naab sin .2 ζ

Hence with the letters taken : C=

Ba + Ab cos .ζ 2nabb sin 2 .ζ

− Ab cos .ζ − Ba cos .2 ζ a sin .2 ζ

and D =

− Ab − Ba cos .ζ 2 naab sin 2 .ζ

then there becomes [*] dx y + C + Dx = −2nDdx + Ddx n n n = − ( 2 n − 1) D n X

And these are all the aids we require by which all the fractional formulas M dx are to be N integrated. Provided M and N are integral [i. e. polynomial] functions of x. On account of which in general the integration of all the formulas of this kind Vdx , where V is some

rational function of x, is in the rule; from which it is to be noted, unless the integration should be algebraic, it can always be shown in terms of either logarithms or angles.

EXAMPLE 1 (A+ Bx )dx

74. With the proposed differential formula α + β x +γ xx , to define the integral of this. Since in the numerator of the variable x there is fewer dimensions than in the denominator, this fraction includes no integral parts. Hence the nature of the denominator must be assessed carefully, whether it should have two real simple factors or not, and in the first case, if the factors are equal ; from which we have three cases to be explained. 1. The denominator has both factors equal and let it be equal to (a + bx)2 and the fraction

(A+ Bx )dx (a +bx ) 2

is resolved into these two : Ab − Ba b (a + bx ) 2

+ b(aB+bx ) ,

from which there is produced

∫

(A+ Bx )dx = bbBa(a−+Ab + B l (a + bx) + Const. ; bx ) bb (a +bx )2

if the integral is thus to be determined, so that it vanishes on putting x = 0, then there is found :

in order that the integral becomes ml

there becomes :

where for k it is agreed to substitute all the numbers 1, 2, 3 etc., until 2k - 1 begins to surpass the number n . [See the notes at the end of this translation.] Hence this form is multiplied by dx and since it is to be compared with our general form

SCHOLIUM 87. Therefore by this the chapter has been made clear, so that nothing further from this dy

kind can be desired. Hence as often as a function y of x of this kind is sought, so that dx is equal to some rational function of x, so the integration presents no difficulty, except perhaps in the elucidation of the particular factor of the denominator where the teaching of algebra has not been sufficient; then indeed the difficulty must be attributed to the defects of the algebra, not the method of integration which we have treated here. Then dy

also chiefly it is agreed to be noted always, since dx is put equal to a rational function of x, the function of y, unless it is algebraic, does not involve other transcending functions in addition to logarithms and angles ; where indeed here it is to be observed always that hyperbolic logarithms are to be understood, since the differential of lx in not equal to 1x , unless the hyperbolic logarithm is taken ; but the reduction of these to common logarithms is very simple, thus so that hence the application of the calculus to the practice is not bothered by any impediment. Whereby we may progress to these other cases, in dy

which the formula dx is equal to an irrational function of x, where indeed at first it must be noted, whenever this function by a suitable substitution can be reduced to rationals, the case to be returned to this chapter. Just as if there should be 3 dy = 1+ x 3− xx dx,

APPENDICES FROM INTRODUCTIO IN ANALYSIN INFINITORUM CH.2 & INSTITUTIONES CALCULI DIFFERENTIALIS CH.18,Part 2. In Ch. 9 § 145 of the Introductio..., Euler proceeds as follows : The quadratic p − qz + rzz in the variable z has imaginary roots if 4 pr > qq or

q 2 pr

< 1. Since

the sines and cosines of angles are less than 1, then the formula p − qz + rzz has simple imaginary factors, if

q should be the sine or cosine of some angle. Hence, let 2 pr q 2 pr

= cos .ϕ , or q = 2 pr ⋅ cos .ϕ

and the trinomial p − qz + zz contains the imaginary simple factors. But lest the irrationality should produce any trouble, I assume this form pp − 2 pqz cos .ϕ + qqzz , and the simple imaginary factors of this are these : qz − p cos .ϕ + −1 ⋅ sin .ϕ and qz − p cos .ϕ − −1 ⋅ sin .ϕ .

(

)

(

)

Where indeed it is apparent, if cos .ϕ = ±1 , then both the factors are equal and real since sin .ϕ = 0 . [In modern terms, we would say that qz − peiϕ

and qz − pe−iϕ are the

(

)

n factors, and powers of z can be expressed in the form z n = r n cos .ϕ ± −1 ⋅ sin .ϕ ]. In

§ 147, Euler assumes DeMoivre's Theorem :

p

z n = r n cos .nϕ ± −1 ⋅ sin .nϕ , where r = q

In § 150 Euler examines the function a n + z n , and the form of the trinomial factors of p

this factor pp − 2 pqz cos .ϕ + qqzz is to be determined. On putting r = q into the equation, there are produced these two equations : a n = r n cos .nϕ , and 0 = r n sin .nϕ . From the latter equation we must have, for some integer k, nϕ = 2kπ , or nϕ = ( 2k + 1) π ; but in the former equation, we must choose nϕ = ( 2k + 1) π , in order that we have a n − r n = 0 , and hence r = a = q . Hence in the above equation, p = a, q = 1, and ϕ = ( 2k + 1) πn . p

Hence the quadratic factor with conjugate roots of the function a n + z n can be shown to be aa − 2az cos . 2kn+1 π + zz , where k is less than n. Euler goes on to look at numerous cases involving this factorization. The partial fraction reduction quoted above in Examples 2 and 3 comes from the Institutionum...., Part 2, Ch.18, which we now address at length, we take up the story at the end of § 406 to Example 1 of §417 in translation : P , then the values of the factors of the If the rational fraction is expressed by Q denominator can be found from the resolution of the equation Q = 0 , and here we make use of a method involving the differential calculus in order that any simple factors of the denominator can thus be defined. P to have a factor f + gx , 407. Therefore we arrange the denominator Q of the fraction Q

thus so that Q = ( f + gx ) S , and indeed here, neither does S contain in addition the same factor f + gx . Let the simple fraction arising from this factor be equal to f +Agx and the P. complement has a form of this kind VS , thus so that f +Agx + VS = Q P− A = P − f +Agx = P − AS , and thus V = P − AS . Hence there arises : VS = Q f + gx ( f + gx ) S ( f + gx ) S ( f + gx ) Therefore, as V is an integral function of x, it is necessary that P − AS should be divisible

−f

by f + gx ; and therefore, if there is put f + gx = 0 or x = g , then the expression P − AS vanishes, [as f + gx is a factor of P − AS or x =

−f g

is a root of this polynomial].

−f Hence on making x = g , since P − AS = 0 , then A = PS , [for this value of x] as now we ( f + gx ) P , if there is Q have found above. But since S = f + gx , then there arises A = Q −f

put f + gx = 0 or x = g everywhere. Now since in this case both the numerator

( f + gx ) P as well as the denominator Q vanish here, by means of that, which we are about to set out in the investigation of fractions of this kind, then if indeed there is put −f

x= g , A=

[One can see that Euler is thinking of the ratio becoming zero on zero when x = g , and so the ratio is to the differential of the numerator to the differential of the denominator. One can see also that the problem is essentially an application of L'Hôpital's Rule : as is well known, in the neighbourhood of a common simple zero x = a of well-behaved functions r and s of x, or a common root of polynomials, the values of the functions at a are represented by their differentials, and it is an easy matter to show that r ( a ) r' ( a ) = x → a s ( a ) s' ( a )

P has a simple factor 408. Therefore if the denominator Q of the proposed fraction Q Pgdx

after everywhere here the value g is put in place of x arising from the equation f + gx = 0 must be substituted. Hence, if Q is not expressed in factors, this division can often be omitted without any bother, particularly if the denominator Q has indefinite exponents, since the value of A can be obtained from the formula

Pgdx dQ

. But if the

denominator now was expressed in factors, thus in order that hence the value of S should be at once apparent, then the other expression is to be preferred, in which we found −f A = PS on putting everywhere equally x = g . And thus for finding the value of A itself

in whatever case that formula can be used, which is seen to be the more convenient and expedient. But we illustrate the use of the new formula with some examples. EXAMPLE 1

Let this fraction be proposed

from the factor of the denominator 1 + x .

Since here Q = 1 + x17 , even if 1 + x is agreed to be a factor of this, yet, if as the first method demands, we wish to divide by that, there is produced S = 1 − x + xx − x3 + ... + x16

Therefore it is more convenient to use the new formula A =

S = 2 ggx − 2 fgcosϕ Now we may put, if

but if there is put in place everywhere f

Therefore since S = S ± s with the same value for x put in place, there is obtained : −1

Hence there becomes Q s = 2 fg− sin and S = 2 fg sin ϕ ϕ q

416. Hence therefore a suitable ratio is obtained and here a simple fraction can be formed from whatever the factor of the second power, since the denominator of the proposed denominator is retained in the computation, since we avoid a division, in which the value of the letter S must be defined and which often is more than a little troublesome. P has such a factor Therefore if the denominator Q of the fraction Q

ff − 2 fgx cos ϕ + ggxx = 0 , a simple fraction arising from this factor can be defined in the following manner, so that we may produce : +ax = ff − 2 fgxAcos . ϕ + ggxx fn

f

There is put x = g cos ϕ and for whatever the power of x n there is written n cos nϕ ; g dQ

with which done P is changed into P and the function dx into Q . Then likewise there fn

f

dQ

is put x = g sin ϕ and any power of this x n = n sin nϕ and P is changed into p and dx g into q . And in this manner with the values of the letters P , Q, p and q found, A and a can thus be found, in order that there becomes

417. But these values are more easily expressed if we determine these factors themselves from the denominator. Therefore let the denominator of the proposed fraction be a + bx n ; of which if the trinomial factor is put in place ff − 2 fgx cos ϕ + ggxx , there will be, as we have shown in the Introductio, a+

bf n bf n sin nϕ = 0 n cosnϕ = 0 and g gn

therefore since sin nϕ = 0 , either nϕ = (2k - 1)π or nϕ = 2kπ ; in the first case then cos nϕ = −1 , in the latter cos nϕ = +1 . Hence if a and b are positive quantities, in the first case only the condition is had, in which there arises a = 1

f = a n and g = b n . But we may retain in place of these irrational quantities the letters f and g or we may put rather a = f n and b = g n , thus in order that the factors of this function are to be found : f n + g n xn . (2 k -1)π , where k can be designated to some positive number, but n indeed numbers for k greater than 2kn-1 are not to be taken, than which return 2kn-1 less n n n

Therefore since ϕ =

ff − 2 fgxcos 3nπ + ggxx ff − 2 fgxcos 5nπ + ggxx etc, where it is to be noted that if n is an odd number, then this one binomial factor is present, f + gx but if n is an even number then no binomial factor is present. EXAMPLE 1

Therefore if n were an even number, in this way all the simple fractions arise; but if n should be an odd number, on account of the binomial factor f +gx this must be added to the resulting fractions above ±1 − − n m 1 nf g m ( f + gx )

where the sign + prevails, if m is an even number, and conversely for the – sign. If m should be a number greater than n, then to these fractions the above integral parts of this kind must be added Ax m − n + Bx m − 2n + Cx m −3n + Dx m − 4n + etc.,

PROBLEMA 3 56. Si X denotet functionem quamcunque rationalem fractam ipsius x, methodum describere, cuius ope formulae Xdx integrale investigari conveniat.

SOLUTIO Sit igitur X = M , ita ut M et N futurae sint functiones integrae ipsius x, ac primo N dispiciatur, num summa potestas ipsius x in numeratore M tanta sit vel etiam maior quam in denominatore N, quo casu ex fractione M partes integrae per divisionem eliciantur; N quarum integratio cum nihil habeat difficultatis, totum negotium reducitur ad eiusmodi fractionem M , in cuius numeratore M summa potestas ipsius x minor sit quam in N denominatore N. Tum quaerantur omnes factores ipsius denominatoris N, tam simplices, si fuerint reales, quam duplices reales, vicem scilicet binorum simplicium imaginariorum gerentes; simulque videndum est, utrum hi factores omnes sint inaequales necne; pro factorum enim aequalitate alio modo resolutio fractionis M in fractiones simplices est instituenda, N quandoquidem ex singulis factoribus fractiones partiales nascuntur, quarum aggregatum fractioni propositae M aequatur. Scilicet ex factore simplici a + bx nascitur fractio N A ; a + bx

si bini sint aequales seu denominator N factorem habeat (a + bx)2 , hinc nascuntur fractiones A B ; 2 + a +bx (a + bx )

Simili modo cum in calculo integrali longius processerimus, integralia omnium huiusmodi formularum Xdx, quaecunque functio ipsius x littera X significetur, tanquam cognita spectabimus plurimumque nobis praestinisse videbimur, si integralia magis abscondita ad eas formas reducere valuerimus; atque hoc etiam in usu practico nihil turbat, cum valores talium formularum Xdx quantumvis prope assignare

Caeterum ad has integrationes resolutio denominatoris N in suos factores absolute est necessaria, propterea quod singuli hi factores in expressionem integralis ingrediuntur; paucissimi sunt casus iique maxime obvii, quibus ista resolutione carere possumus; veluti si proponatur haec n −1 formula x dx statim patet posito x n = ν eam abire in n
