I'm watching the video series on Quantum Mechanics taught by Leonard Susskind, (from Stanford).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

On Lecture #3, Dr. Susskind says that integration by parts is:

∫FG' = -∫GF'

However from what I know integral by parts to be, there i missing a +FG on the righthand side, or something... since I don't recognize that as the same as

∫FdG = FG - ∫GdF

The specific function that was being dealt with was the wavefunction ψ, (where F = G = ψ) so maybe that could have to do with it... I don't think ψ^2 = 0 though.

Thanks
