If we want to represent the nth derivative of , then out of many we can write:

(Lagrange's notation).

(Leibniz's notation).

But what notation do we use for representing the reverse — that is, for the nth integral of the RHS?

Is there in anything wrong/ambiguous about using for the nth integral of ?

[Got that idea from wikipedia article that says the multiple integration of a function in variables,

, over a domain D is represented by ] - Sep 12th 2010, 05:36 AMHallsofIvy
You will also sometimes see for the nth derivative and for the nth anti-derivative. Of course, . If you use for the nth derivative, you could use for the nth anti-derivative.

TheCoffeeMachine, wouldn't the form you give be likely to be confused with the integral with respect to the nth coordinate variable? - Sep 12th 2010, 06:00 AMlvleph
