I forgot a little detail in the integration by parts formula
Is it $\int u \,dv = uv$ + or - $\int v \,du$
I don't remember if its plus or minus.....

Just remember that the integration by parts formula is deriviable from the formula for the product of a deriviatives.

d(u * v) = u * dv + v * du.

Now integrate both sides subtract int(v *du). Isn't math woinderful :-)
