    integral binomial differential

    Hiow to evaluate
    \int_0^1{dx \frac{d^{2l-1}}{dx^{2l-1}} \[ (x^2-1)^{2l} \]
    Using the binomial theorem
    \int_0^1{dx \frac{d^{2l-1}}{dx^{2l-1}} \[ \sum_{k=0}^{2l} \frac{(2l)!}{k!(2l-k)!} x^{4l-2k} (-1)^k \]

    l is a non negative integer.

    I don't know how to proceed. Is there another way?
    Thanks.

    Re: integral binomial differential

    Move the differential operator into the sum. You'll need to evaluate

    \frac{d^{2l-1}}{dx^{2l-1}} x^{4l-2k}

    which you can easily do by induction. Some terms of the sum may vanish while doing this, I didn't check. Finally, swap the sum and integral. Evaluate the integral. And you should be done.
