Assuming you mean,

Use integration by parts,

let, then, and, then,

Thus,

Thus,

The trick is to express,

as,

Thus,

Working with the integral we have,

=

Let,

Then, as we have shown,

Which is,

Thus,

Thus,

Thus,

Thus, the recurrence formula is,

Sorry, I see things differently sometimes.

My solution to the above problem follows the same idea.

Almost identical.

Try to find the solution yourself, if not I can finish it. - June 23rd 2006, 06:25 PMnath_quam
i was asking bout what captain wrote i really shoud learn how to make it look good

Did you get the recrussive relationship yet?

I can integrate it for you if you like.

After all, I am the quickest integrator in the west ! - June 24th 2006, 11:44 PMnath_quam
Thanks that would be good if u could perfect cos i get stuck when i do it

Here we let: , and , so:

So

Putting the limits back in:

Simplifying:

So the recurrence relation for is:

guarantee there is no mistake)
