A problem with Integration by Parts in Hartle's "Gravity"

  1. Mar 24, 2015 #1
    Hi guys!

    I am reading the book "Gravity" by Hartle. I came across this scary-looking integral. The author does integration by parts and I don't get how he does it. Could someone guide me please?

    Relevant equations:

    ∫u dv = uv - ∫v du
