This is the integral calculus counterpart of the product rule in differential calculus. To
derive it, we integrate the expression

to obtain

For definite integrals,

We can find
as follows.

so that

We can also use integration by parts to find integrals which can not
be evaluated directly such as
. This is
done as follows.
