Negative Derivative

  1. Jul 14, 2009 #1
    Hello,

    What negative derivative means like this one:

    [tex]\frac{\partial^{-1}}{\partial\,x^{-1}}[/tex]

    Regards

    I honestly have never seen such a notation but I would suspect the "inverse" derivative is the anti-derivative or indefinite integral. (I have seen this written "D-1 f" for anti-derivative.)
