Hi, just wondering does this mean the triple integral of "y" with respect to "x"?
$$\int \frac{d^{3} x}{y^{3}} .$$

Without the benefit of the context, I would say a cautious "yes". Cautious because ##d^3x## is shorthand for ##dx_1~dx_2~dx_3## so there is no single variable of integration "x".

any context? bounds ? Complete problem statement ?

Is y a function of position in three dimensions?

I found it in a textbook, it's very general "equation".

What you posted is an expression, not an equation. What is the rest of it?
There must be some context or it would be meaningless.
