Not sure if you guys use a different formula (maybe different representation of variables) so I"ll put down my I B P formula:

(Integral of) u*dv = u*v - (Integral of) v*du

Now i've been looking at a couple of examples and in most of them (especially where you are going to end up with a dv value very hard to integrate) u is the entire term (not including dx of course) and dv is just 1*dx. Is this a very common/effective method?

P.S. I'm new to this forum/forums in general, how do you get the fancy math symbols on here
