2. 7.4 Integration of Rational FunctionsRational function: ratio of polynomials.Ex: + + +Fact: A rational function can always bedecomposed to summation of terms like +polynomials or ( + ) or ( + + ) whereA, B, etc. are constants.Ex: − + + = + + + − − − + − ( − ) + Partial Fractions
3. First step: if the rational function isimproper (the degree of numerator is morethan or equal to the degree of dominator),use long division to decompose it to apolynomial plus a proper rational function. +Ex: = + + +
4. First step: if the rational function isimproper (the degree of numerator is morethan or equal to the degree of dominator),use long division to decompose it to apolynomial plus a proper rational function. +Ex: = + + +As a result: + = + + + | |+
5. Second step: factor the dominator of theproper rational function to be a product oflinear factors and/or irreducible quadraticfactors. + + is irreducible if < .Ex: + = ( + ) + = ( )( + ) + + =( ) ( + )
6. Third step: decompose the proper rationalfunction to be a sum of partial fractions bymethod of undetermined coefficients. +Ex: +
7. Third step: decompose the proper rationalfunction to be a sum of partial fractions bymethod of undetermined coefficients. +Ex: +We factor + = ( )( + )
8. Third step: decompose the proper rationalfunction to be a sum of partial fractions bymethod of undetermined coefficients. +Ex: +We factor + = ( )( + ) +so assume = + + + +
9. Third step: decompose the proper rationalfunction to be a sum of partial fractions bymethod of undetermined coefficients. +Ex: +We factor + = ( )( + ) +so assume = + + + + ( + + ) +( + ) = +
10. Third step: decompose the proper rationalfunction to be a sum of partial fractions bymethod of undetermined coefficients. +Ex: +We factor + = ( )( + ) +so assume = + + + + ( + + ) +( + ) = +thus = , = , =
11. CASE I: the dominator is a product ofdistinct linear factors.CASE II: the dominator is a product oflinear factors, some of which are repeated.CASE III: the dominator contains distinctirreducible quadratic factors.Case IV: the dominator contains repeatedirreducible quadratic factors.
