Differentiate: ∫ x^2 to 1 ( t^(4) + 1 / t^(2) + 1 )dt
I dont get how after the step:
-d/dx ∫ 1 to x^2 ( t^(4) + 1 / t^(2) + 1 )dt
how you get to: -d/du ∫ 1 to u ( t^(4) + 1 / t^(2) + 1 )dt * du/dx.
How does using the chain rule affect the upper limit? I also dont really understand the notation, since I am very used to
t is a 'dummy variable' and often causes confusion. However, if you can just accept the rule that the lower balloon here is the derivative of the upper one with respect to x...
... (which is just the FTC) then you can maybe extend to being happy with applying the chain rule. Just in case a picture helps, say
... is the chain rule. Straight continuous lines differentiate downwards (integrate up) with respect to x, and the straight dashed line similarly but with respect to the dashed balloon expression (the inner function of the composite which is subject to the chain rule).
Then the FTC with chain rule is...
In this case...
BTW, correcting small typo here as Lagrange notation's ambiguity on this very point is what H of I was meaning to clarify (I think)...

Differentiation under the integral sign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), but because the derivative of the constant (1) is zero the effect of doing so would be nil. So you can (I think) think of -F(1) as the constant of integration that disappears on the way down. I may try and amend the diagram later to make that clearer.
