Rule of thumb for double integral order

  1. Apr 18, 2013 #1
    Is there any rule of thumb for which variable should be integrated first?, i.e. to make the whole process of double integration easier.

    That is the rule of thumb - do it in the order that makes the integration easiest.
    What counts as "easy" is too variable to get more specific.
