We use integration to measure lengths, areas, or volumes. This can be a geometrical interpretation, however we wish to study an analytical interpretation that leads us to *Integration reverses differentiation*. Therefore allow us to begin with differentiation.

#### Weierstraß Definition of Derivatives

##f## is differentiable at ##x## if there’s a linear map ##D_{x}f##, such that

start{equation*}

underbrace{D_{x}(f)}_{textual content{By-product}}cdot underbrace{v}_{textual content{Path}}=left(left. dfrac{df(t)}{dt}proper|_{t=x}proper)cdot v=underbrace{f(x+v)}_{textual content{location plus change}}-underbrace{f(x)}_{textual content{location}}-underbrace{o(v)}_{textual content{error}}

finish{equation*}

the place the error ##o(v)## will increase slower than linear (cp. Landau image). The spinoff could be the Jacobi-matrix, a gradient, or just a slope. It’s at all times an array of numbers. If we converse of derivatives as capabilities, then we imply ##f’, : ,xlongmapsto D_{x}f.## Integration is the issue to compute ##f## from ##f’## or ##f## from

$$

dfrac{f(x+v)-f(x)}+o(1)

$$

The quotient on this expression is **linear** in ##f## so

$$

D_x(alpha f+beta g)=alpha D_x(f)+beta D_x(g)

$$

If we add the **Leibniz rule**

$$

D_x(fcdot g)=D_{x}(f)cdot g(x) + f(x)cdot D_{x}(g)

$$

and the **chain rule**

$$

D_x(fcirc g)=D_{g(x)}(f)circ g cdot D_x(g)

$$

then we’ve got the primary properties of differentiation.

#### Integration Guidelines

The answer ##f(x)## given ##D_x(f)## is written

$$

f(x)=int D_x(f),dx=int f'(x),dx

$$

which can also be **linear**

$$

int left(alpha f'(x)+beta g'(x)proper),dx = alpha int f'(x),dx +beta int g'(x),dx

$$

and obeys the Leibniz rule which we name **integration by elements**

$$

f(x)g(x)=int D_x(fcdot g),dx=int f'(x)g(x),dx + int f(x)g'(x),dx

$$

and the chain rule results in the **substitution rule** of integration

start{align*}

f(g(x))=int f'(g(x))dg(x)&=int left.dfrac{df(y)}{dy}proper|_{y=g(x)}dfrac{dg(x)}{dx}dx=int f'(g(x))g'(x)dx

finish{align*}

#### Differentiation is straightforward, Integration is tough

In an effort to differentiate, we have to compute

$$

D_x(f)=lim_{vto 0}left(dfrac{f(x+v)-f(x)}+o(1)proper)=lim_{vto 0}dfrac{f(x+v)-f(x)}

$$

which is a exactly outlined job. Nonetheless, if we wish to combine, we’re given a operate ##f## and should discover a operate ##F## such that

$$

f(x)=lim_{vto 0}dfrac{F(x+v)-F(x)}.

$$

The restrict as a computation job just isn’t helpful since we have no idea ##F.## In actual fact, we’ve got to think about the pool of all doable capabilities ##F,## compute the restrict, and verify whether or not it matches the given operate ##f.## And the pool of all doable capabilities is massive, very massive. The primary integrals are subsequently discovered by the other methodology: differentiate a recognized operate ##F,## compute ##f=D_x(F),## and record

$$

F=int D_x(F),dx=int f(x),dx.

$$

as an integral formulation. Positive, there are numerical strategies to compute an integral, nonetheless, this doesn’t result in a closed kind with recognized capabilities. An enormous and necessary class of capabilities is polynomials. So we begin with ##F(x)=x^n.##

start{align*}

D_x(x^n)&=lim_{vto 0}dfrac{(x+v)^n-x^n}=lim_{vto 0}dfrac{binom n 1 x^{n-1}v+binom n 2 x^{n-2}v^2+ldots}=nx^{n-1}

finish{align*}

and get

$$

x^n = int nx^{n-1},dx quadtext{or} quad int x^r,dx = dfrac{1}{r+1}x^{r+1}

$$

and particularly ##int 0,dx = c, , ,int 1,dx = x.## The formulation is even legitimate for any actual quantity ##rneq -1.## However what’s

$$

int dfrac{1}{x},dxtext{ ?}

$$

#### Euler’s Quantity and the ##mathbf{e}-##Operate

The historical past of Euler’s quantity ##mathbf{e}## is the historical past of the discount of multiplication (tough) to addition (simple). It runs like a purple thread by the historical past of arithmetic, from John Napier (1550-1617) and Jost Bürgi (1552-1632) to Volker Strassen (1936-), Shmuel Winograd (1936-2019) and Don Coppersmith (##sim##1950 -). Napier and Bürgi revealed logarithm tables to a base near ##mathbf{1/e}## (1614), resp. near ##mathbf{e}## (1620) to make use of

$$

log_b (xcdot y)=log_b x+log_b y.

$$

Strassen, Coppersmith, and Winograd revealed algorithms for matrix multiplication that save elementary multiplications on the expense of extra additions. Napier and Bürgi had been in all probability led by instinct. Jakob Bernoulli (1655-1705) already discovered ##mathbf{e}## in 1669 by the investigation of rates of interest calculations. Grégoire de Saint-Vincent (1584-1667) solved the issue in regards to the hyperbola, Apollonius of Perga (##sim##240##sim##190 BC).

*What’s the quantity on the proper such that the purple and inexperienced areas are equal?*

That is in fashionable phrases the query

$$

1=int_1^x dfrac{1}{t},dt

$$

The answer is ##x=mathbf{e}=2.71828182845904523536028747135…## though it wanted the works of Isaac Newton (1643-1727) and Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) to acknowledge it. They discovered what we name the pure logarithm. It’s the integral of the hyperbola

$$

int dfrac{1}{x},dx = log_mathbf{,e} x = ln x

$$

Euler dealt so much with continued fractions. We record among the astonishing expressions which – simply perhaps – clarify Napier’s and Bürgi’s instinct.

start{align*}

mathbf{e}&=displaystyle 1+{frac {1}{1}}+{frac {1}{1cdot 2}}+{frac {1}{1cdot 2cdot 3}}+{frac {1}{1cdot 2cdot 3cdot 4}}+dotsb =sum _{ok=0}^{infty }{frac {1}{ok!}}

&=lim_{nto infty }dfrac{n}{sqrt[n]{n!}}=lim_{n to infty}left(sqrt[n]{n}proper)^{pi(n)}

&=2+dfrac{1mid}{mid 1}+dfrac{1mid}{mid 2}+dfrac{2mid}{mid 3}+dfrac{3mid}{mid 4}+dfrac{4mid}{mid 5}+dfrac{5mid}{mid 6}+ldots

&=3+dfrac{-1mid}{mid 4}+dfrac{-2mid}{mid 5}+dfrac{-3mid}{mid 6}+dfrac{-4mid}{mid 7}+dfrac{-5mid}{mid 8}+ldots

&=lim_{n to infty}left(1+dfrac{1}{n}proper)^n=lim_{stackrel{t to infty}{tin mathbb{R}}}left(1+dfrac{1}{t}proper)^t

left(1+dfrac{1}{n}proper)^n&<mathbf{e}<left(1+dfrac{1}{n}proper)^{n+1}

dfrac{1}{e-2}&=1+dfrac{1mid}{mid 2}+dfrac{2mid}{mid 3}+dfrac{3mid}{mid 4}+dfrac{4mid}{mid 4}+ldots

dfrac{e+1}{e-1}&=2+dfrac{1mid}{mid 6}+dfrac{1mid}{mid 10}+dfrac{1mid}{mid 14}+ldots

finish{align*}

Jakob Steiner (1796-1863) has proven in 1850 that ##mathbf{e}## is the uniquely outlined constructive, actual quantity that yields the best quantity by taking the basis with itself, a world most:

$$

mathbf{e}longleftarrow maxleft{f(x), : ,x longmapsto sqrt[x]{x},|,x>0right}

$$

Thus ##mathbf{e}^x > x^mathbf{e},(xneq mathbf{e}),## or by way of complexity idea: The exponential operate grows sooner than any polynomial.

If we take a look at that operate

$$

exp, : ,xlongmapsto mathbf{e}^x = sum_{ok=0}^infty dfrac{x^ok}{ok!}

$$

then we observe that

$$

D_x(exp) = D_xleft(sum_{ok=0}^infty dfrac{x^ok}{ok!}proper)=

sum_{ok=1}^infty kcdotdfrac{x^{k-1}}{ok!}=sum_{ok=0}^infty dfrac{x^ok}{ok!}

$$

and

$$

D_x(exp)=exp(x)=int exp(x),dx

$$

*The *##mathbf{e}-##*operate is a hard and fast level for differentiation and integration.*

We have now good mounted level theorems for compact operators (Juliusz Schauder, 1899-1943), compact units (Luitzen Egbertus Jan Brouwer, 1881-1966), or Lipschitz steady capabilities (Stefan Banach, 1892-1945). The latter is the anchor of probably the most necessary theorems about differential equations, the **theorem of Picard-Lindelöf:**

The preliminary worth downside

$$

start{circumstances}

y'(t) &=f(t,y(t))

y(t_0) &=y_0

finish{circumstances}

$$

with a steady, and within the second argument Lipschitz steady operate ##f## on appropriate actual intervals has a singular resolution.

One defines a purposeful ##phi, : ,varphi longmapsto left{tlongmapsto y_0+int_{t_0}^t f(tau,varphi(tau)),dtauright}## for the proof and exhibits, that ##y(t)## is a hard and fast level of ##phi## if and provided that ##y(t)## solves the preliminary worth downside.

#### Development and the ##mathbf{e}-##operate

Let ##y(t)## be the dimensions of a inhabitants at time ##t##. If the relative progress fee of the inhabitants per unit time is denoted by ##c = c(t,y),## then ##y’/y= c##; i.e.,

$$y’= cy$$

and so

$$y=mathbf{e}^{cx}.$$

Therefore the ##mathbf{e}-##operate describes unrestricted progress. Nonetheless, in any ecological system, the sources out there to help life are restricted, and this in flip locations a restrict on the dimensions of the inhabitants that may survive within the system. The quantity ##N## denoting the dimensions of the biggest inhabitants that may be supported by the system is known as *the carrying capability of the ecosystem* and ##c=c(t,y,N).## An instance is the **logistic equation**

$$

y’=(N-ay)cdot yquad (N,a>0).

$$

The logistic equation was first thought of by Pierre-François Verhulst (1804-1849) as a demographic mathematical mannequin. The equation is an instance of how complicated, chaotic conduct can come up from easy nonlinear equations. It additionally describes a inhabitants of dwelling beings, similar to a really perfect bacterial inhabitants rising on a bacterial medium of restricted measurement. One other instance is (roughly) the unfold of an infectious illness adopted by everlasting immunity, leaving a lowering variety of people inclined to the an infection over time. The logistic operate can also be used within the SIR mannequin of mathematical epidemiology. Beside the stationary options ##yequiv 0## and ##yequiv N/a,## it has the answer

$$

y_a (t)= dfrac{N}{a}cdot dfrac{1}{1+kcdot mathbf{e}^{-Nt}}

$$

Populations are actually extra complicated than even a restricted progress if we contemplate predators and prey, say rabbits and foxes. The extra foxes there are, the less the rabbits, which ends up in fewer foxes, and the rabbit inhabitants can recuperate. The extra rabbits, the extra foxes will survive. This is called the pork cycle in financial science. The mannequin goes again to the American biophysicist Alfred J. Lotka (1880-1949) and the Italian mathematician Vito Volterra (1860-1940). The dimensions of the predator inhabitants will likely be denoted by ##y(t),## that of the prey by ##x(t).## The system of differential equations

$$

x'(t)= ax(t)-bx(t)y(t) ; , ;y'(t)= -cy(t)+dx(t)y(t)

$$

is known as **Lotka-Volterra system**. E.g. let ##a=10,b=2,c=7,d=1.## Then we get the answer ##y(t)^{10}mathbf{e}^{-2y(t)}=mathbf{e}^ok x(t)^{-7}mathbf{e}^{x(t)}.##

#### The Exponential Ansatz

We now take a look at the simplest differential equations and their options, linear extraordinary ones over complicated numbers

$$

y’=Ayquadtext{ with a fancy sq. matrix }A=(a_{ij})in mathbb{M}(n,mathbb{C})

$$

A fancy operate

$$

y(t)=ccdot mathbf{e}^{lambda t}

$$

is an answer of this equation if and provided that ##lambda ## is an eigenvalue of the matrix ##A## and ##c## is a corresponding eigenvector. If ##A## has ##n## linearly unbiased eigenvectors (that is the case, for instance, if A has ##n## distinct eigenvalues), then the system obtained on this method is a elementary system of options.

The concept holds in the true case, too, however one has to take care of the actual fact, that some eigenvalues won’t be actual, and complicated options are normally not those we’re thinking about over actual numbers. The true model of the concept has to take care of these circumstances and is thus a bit extra technical.

Let’s contemplate the Jordan regular type of a matrix. Then ##y’=Jy## turns into

$$

start{circumstances}

y_1’&=lambda y_1+y_2 y_2’&=lambda y_2+y_3

vdots &vdotsquad vdots

y_{n-1}’&=lambda y_{n-1}+y_n

y_n’&=lambda y_n

finish{circumstances}

$$

This technique can simply be solved by a backward substitution

$$

Y(t)=start{bmatrix}

mathbf{e}^{lambda t}&tmathbf{e}^{lambda t}&frac{1}{2}t^2mathbf{e}^{lambda t}&cdots&frac{1}{(n-1)!}t^{n-1}mathbf{e}^{lambda t}

0&mathbf{e}^{lambda t}&tmathbf{e}^{lambda t}&cdots&frac{1}{(n-2)!}t^{n-2}mathbf{e}^{lambda t}

0&0&mathbf{e}^{lambda t}&cdots&frac{1}{(n-3)!}t^{n-3}mathbf{e}^{lambda t}

vdots&vdots&vdots&ddots&vdots

0&0&0&cdots&mathbf{e}^{lambda t}

finish{bmatrix}

$$

The sequence

$$

mathbf{e}^{B}=I+B+dfrac{B^2}{2!}+dfrac{B^3}{3!}+ldots

$$

converges completely for all ##B## so we get

$$

left(mathbf{e}^{At}proper)’=Acdot mathbf{e}^{At}

$$

and located a elementary matrix for our differential equation system, particularly

$$

Y(t)=mathbf{e}^{At}quad textual content{with}quad Y(0)=I

$$

An necessary generalization in physics is periodic capabilities. Say we’ve got a harmonic, ##omega ##-periodic system with a steady ##A(t)##

$$

x'(t)=A(t)x(t)quadtext{with}quad A(t+omega )=A(t)

$$

For it’s elementary matrix ##X(t)## with ##X(0)=I## holds

$$

X(t+omega )=X(t)Cquadtext{with a non-singular matrix}quad C=X(omega )

$$

##C## could be written as ##mathbf{e}^{omega B}## though the matrix ##B## just isn’t uniquely decided due to the complicated periodicity of the exponential operate.

**Theorem of Gaston Floquet** (1847-1920)

##X(t)## with ##X(0)=I## has a Floquet illustration

$$

X(t)=Q(t)mathbf{e}^{ B t}

$$

the place ##Q(t)in mathcal{C}^1(mathbb{R})## is ##omega##-periodic and non-singular for all ##t.##

Allow us to lastly contemplate a extra subtle, nonetheless necessary instance: Lie teams. They happen as symmetry teams of differential equations in physics. A Lie group is an analytical manifold and an algebraic group. Its tangent area on the ##I##-component is its corresponding Lie algebra. The latter may also be analytically launched as left-invariant (or right-invariant) vector fields. The connection between the 2 is easy: differentiate on the manifold (Lie group) and also you get to the tangent area (Lie algebra), combine alongside the vector fields (Lie algebra), and also you get to the manifold (Lie group).

#### The Lie By-product

“Let ##X## be a vector subject on a manifold ##M##. We are sometimes thinking about how sure geometric objects on ##M##, similar to capabilities, differential kinds and different vector fields, differ below the movement ##exp(varepsilon X)## induced by ##X##. The Lie spinoff of such an object will in impact inform us its infinitesimal change when acted on by the movement. … Extra usually, let ##sigma## be a differential kind or vector subject outlined over ##M##. Given some extent ##pin M##, after ‘time’ ##varepsilon## it has moved to

##exp(varepsilon X)## with its unique worth at ##p##. Nonetheless, ##left. sigma proper|_{exp(varepsilon X)p}## and ##left. sigma proper|_p ##, as they stand are, strictly talking, incomparable as they belong to completely different vector areas, e.g. ##left. TM proper|_{exp(varepsilon X)p}## and ##left. TM proper|_p## within the case of a vector subject. To impact any comparability, we have to ‘transport’ ##left. sigma proper|_{exp(varepsilon X)p}## again to ##p## in some pure method, after which make our comparability. For vector fields, this pure transport is the inverse differential

start{equation*}

phi^*_varepsilon equiv d exp(-varepsilon X) : left. TM proper|_{exp(varepsilon X)p} rightarrow left. TM proper|_p

finish{equation*}

whereas for differential kinds we use the pullback map

start{equation*}

phi^*_varepsilon equiv exp(varepsilon X)^* : wedge^ok left. T^*M proper|_{exp(varepsilon X)p} rightarrow wedge^ok left. T^*M proper|_p

finish{equation*}

This permits us to make the final definition of a Lie spinoff.”** [Olver]**

The exponential operate comes into play right here, as a result of the exponential map is the pure operate that transports objects of the Lie algebra ##mathfrak{g}## to these on the manifold ##G##, a type of integration. It’s the identical cause we used the exponential Ansatz above since differential equations are statements about vector fields. If two matrices ##A,B## commute, then we’ve got

$$

textual content{addition within the Lie algebra }longleftarrow mathbf{e}^{A+B}=mathbf{e}^{A}cdot mathbf{e}^{B}longrightarrow

textual content{ multiplication within the Lie group}

$$

The same old case of non-commuting matrices is much more difficult, nonetheless, the precept stands, the conversion of multiplication to addition and vice versa. E.g., situations of the multiplicative determinant (##det U = 1##) for the (unitary) Lie group turns right into a situation of the additive hint (##operatorname{tr}S=0##) for the (skew-Hermitian) Lie algebra.

The Lie spinoff alongside a vector subject ##X## of a vector subject or differential kind ##omega## at some extent ##p in M## is given by

start{equation*}

start{aligned}

mathcal{L}_X(omega)_p &= X(omega)|_p &= lim_{t to 0} frac{1}{t} left( phi^*_t (left. omega proper|_{exp(t X)_p})- omega|_p proper)

&= left. frac{d}{dt} proper|_{t=0}, phi^*_t (left. omega proper|_{exp(t X)_p})

finish{aligned}

finish{equation*}

On this kind, it’s apparent that the Lie spinoff is a directional spinoff and one other type of the equation we began with.

Each, Lie teams and Lie algebras have a so-called adjoint illustration denoted by ##operatorname{Advert}, , ,mathfrak{advert},## resp. Interior automorphisms (conjugation) on the group stage change into inside derivations (linear maps that obey the Leibniz rule typically, and the Jacobi identification particularly) on the Lie algebra stage. Let ##iota_y## denote the group conjugation ##xlongmapsto yxy^{-1}.## Then the spinoff on the level ##I## is the adjoint illustration of the Lie group (on its Lie algebra as illustration area)

$$

D_I(iota_y)=operatorname{Advert}(y), : ,Xlongmapsto yXy^{-1}

$$

The adjoint illustration ##mathfrak{advert}## of the Lie algebra on itself as illustration area is the left-multiplication ##(mathfrak{advert}(X))(Y)=[X,Y].## Each are associated by

$$

operatorname{Advert}(mathbf{e}^A) = mathbf{e}^{mathfrak{advert} A}

$$
