What's the best integration technique to use amongst these (Intergration by parts, triginometric substitution, integrating rational fuctions b partial fractions)... and can you explain for what kind of integrands the technique works.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It all depends. Each technique has a different approach. I always start with "u substitution" and then move on. Normally the function will have a hint. By parts is functions that can't be integrated the other ways. An example would be like x^(2)sin(x). Trig substitution will have a square root in it and follow a general form. Partial fractions is used for rational functions when it would be easier to solve. I seem to try and forsee the what would happen if I did this...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In my opinion there's no such thing as the "best" integration technique. Integration proficiency only comes with lots of practice.
