    I Is it possible to solve such a differential equation?

    Hello, I would like to is it possible to solve such a differential equation (I would like to know the z(x) function): \displaystyle{ \frac{z}{z+dz}= \frac{(x+dx)d(x+dx)}{xdx}} I separated variables z,x to integrate it some way. Then I would get this z(x) function. My idea is to find such...

    I Calculus and Kinematic equations---need help seeing the logic

    Details of Question: ds/dt= v which becomes ds=v dt, where s=displacement, t =time, and v=velocity Then we can integrate both sides of this equation, and do a little algebra, and turn the above equation into: s − s0 = v0t + ½at2 My main question is about the integration of...

    Integrating a fraction with three variables: ( sin(a) + M^2 ) / ( 1 + x^2 )

    I think in the case of "n da" you can see the denominator (1+x^2) as a constant, so ∫ ( sin(a) + M^2 ) / ( 1 + x^2 ) da = ( 1 / ( 1 + x^2 ) ) * ∫ (sin(a) + M^2 ) da = ( 1 / ( 1 + x^2 ) ) * ( -cos(a) + (M^2)a ) = ( - cos(a) + (M^2)a ) / ( 1 + x^2 ) --- Is this the way to go? This is my...

    Integration ##\ddot\phi = -\omega^2\phi##

    Hi, I'm wondering how can I get ## \phi(t) = A sin(\omega t) + B cos(\omega t)## I know I have to integrate 2 times ##\ddot\phi = -\omega^2\phi##. However, I don't have any more explanation in my book. I know A and B are the constants of integration.

    I Gauss-Kronrod quadrature

    The Gauss-Kronrod quadrature uses the zeros of the Legendre Polynomials of degree n and the zeros of the Stieltjes polynomials of degree n+1. These zeros are the nodes for the quadrature. For example using the Gauss polynomial of degree 7, you will need the Stieltjes of degree 8 and both makes...

    A Integral of 2 Bessel functions of different orders

    I can only find a solution to \int_{0}^{r} \frac{1}{\rho} J_m(a\rho) J_n(b\rho) d\rho with the Lommel's integral . On my last thread (here), I got an idea about how to execute this when m = n (Bessel functions with the same order) using Lommel's integrals (Using some properties of Bessel...

    I remember being given a ghastly book of integrals to learn when I was about 16. I went to sleep. Apparently the first book of integrals was published by Meier Hirsch in 1810. There have been many more since then. Surely with the invention of the internet there is something better? Symbolab has...
