  • 6. Antiderivatives The derivative of a constant function f(x) = k is 0. The Mean Value Theorem gives us the converse of the above statement. Theorem. If f'(x) = 0 for all x’s then f(x) is a constant function. Proof. We will show that for any x > 0 that f(x) = f(0) = k. We are given that f'(x) = 0 so f(x) is differentiable.
  • 7. Antiderivatives The derivative of a constant function f(x) = k is 0. The Mean Value Theorem gives us the converse of the above statement. Theorem. If f'(x) = 0 for all x’s then f(x) is a constant function. Proof. We will show that for any x > 0 that f(x) = f(0) = k. We are given that f'(x) = 0 so f(x) is differentiable. By the Mean Value Theorem, there is a “c” where 0 < c < x and that f(x) – f(0) = f '(c) x – 0
  • 8. Antiderivatives The derivative of a constant function f(x) = k is 0. The Mean Value Theorem gives us the converse of the above statement. Theorem. If f'(x) = 0 for all x’s then f(x) is a constant function. Proof. We will show that for any x > 0 that f(x) = f(0) = k. We are given that f'(x) = 0 so f(x) is differentiable. By the Mean Value Theorem, there is a “c” where 0 < c < x and that f(x) – f(0) = f '(c) = 0 by the assumption, x – 0
  • 9. Antiderivatives The derivative of a constant function f(x) = k is 0. The Mean Value Theorem gives us the converse of the above statement. Theorem. If f'(x) = 0 for all x’s then f(x) is a constant function. Proof. We will show that for any x > 0 that f(x) = f(0) = k. We are given that f'(x) = 0 so f(x) is differentiable. By the Mean Value Theorem, there is a “c” where 0 < c < x and that f(x) – f(0) = f '(c) = 0 by the assumption, x – 0 hence f(x) – f(0) = 0, or that f(x) = f(0) = k.
  • 10. Antiderivatives The derivative of a constant function f(x) = k is 0. The Mean Value Theorem gives us the converse of the above statement. Theorem. If f'(x) = 0 for all x’s then f(x) is a constant function. Proof. We will show that for any x > 0 that f(x) = f(0) = k. We are given that f'(x) = 0 so f(x) is differentiable. By the Mean Value Theorem, there is a “c” where 0 < c < x and that f(x) – f(0) = f '(c) = 0 by the assumption, x – 0 hence f(x) – f(0) = 0, or that f(x) = f(0) = k. A similar argument may be made for x < 0, hence f(x) = k.

There is only one derivative for any f(x) but the “antiderivatives” of f(x) is a set of functions.

We write this as ∫f(x) dx Hence the above theorem may be stated as: “The antiderivatives of the function f(x) = 0 are exactly all the constant functions F(x) = k” or ∫0 dx = k F(x) = ' Remarks I. There is only one derivative for any f(x) but the “antiderivatives” of f(x) is a set of functions. II. Any two antiderivatives of f(x) must differ by a constant. Hence if F'(x) = G'(x) then F(x) = G(x) + k for some constant k.

  • 63. Antiderivatives Theorem. If F(N) (x) = G(N)(x) then F(x) = G(x) + P(x) for some polynomial P(x) with deg(P) < N. In other words, if two function have the same N’th derivatives, then their difference is a polynomial with degree less than N.
  • 64. Antiderivatives Theorem. If F(N) (x) = G(N)(x) then F(x) = G(x) + P(x) for some polynomial P(x) with deg(P) < N. In other words, if two function have the same N’th derivatives, then their difference is a polynomial with degree less than N. In general, we need N data points in the initial condition to recover the difference P(x) completely.
