    Unhappy order of integration..the core

    hello everybody
    i want to know that if we have a multivariable function f(x,y)
    then

    \int \int f(x,y) ~dydx = \int \int f(x,y) ~dxdy

    wen is this true ...are there any conditions for it or is it always true...

    It is always true as long as you get the terminals of your integral right.

    you people are all talking about the definite integrals where we integrate a function over a defined 2-d region in this case (fubini theorem)..im talking about the indefinite integrals or the integrals like the one in convolution of three signals (functions) ..x(t)*y(t)*z(t).....there the limits are not defined the way we do in fubini theorem to convert a multiple integral into iterated single integrals .....

    fubini's thm is concerned with a general measure space .. no issue of definite or indefinite (which is only in real cases) enter ... read the article in WP once.
