(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Rudin's change of variables theorem

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Rudin's Principles of Mathematical Analysis Theorem 6.19 (for the Riemann integral case) says

Suppose \phi is a strictly increasing continuous differentiable function that maps an interval [A,B] ont [a,b]. Suppose f is Riemann integrable on [a,b]. THen

[tex]\int_a^b f(x) dx = \int_A^B f(\phi(y)) \phi'(y) dy [/tex]

I am kind of confused about why Rudin threw in the stipulation that \phi should be strictly increasing. I thought it only need to be continuously differentiable...

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
