# Integration

Chapter

## Abstract

In this chapter, we solve, more or less simultaneously, the following problems:

- (1)Given a function
*f*(*x*), find a function*F*(*x*) such thatThis is the inverse of differentiation, and is called integration.$$ F'(x) = f(x). $$ - (2)
Given a function

*f*(*x*) which is ≧ 0, give a definition of the area under the curve*y*=*f*(*x*) which does not appeal to geometric intuition.
