Reduction formula integration method help

  1. Apr 13, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Well, i've been doing a lot of research about the reduction formula as a method for resolving integration problems. However, not much information on the topic is to be found about the topic. The only things i get to find are examples with the formulas already given, which is cool, but still not what i need.

    The Question is ¿is there a general method to find the reduction formula for any given u^n function?

    It depends on the function it self.
    Personally, I think integration by parts is the famous way of finding the reduction formulas.
