    \[\int\limits_{0}^{1} [e^x \cos (e^x)]dx\]

    Do a u-substitution with \(u=\sin(e^x)\), and your solution should pop right out.

    did you mean u=e^x ?

    but if you do that, then du = e^xcos(e^x) and there's no cos (e^x) in the question.

    \(u=\sin(e^x)\implies du=e^x\cos(e^x)dx\). So your integral becomes\[\int du=u\]

    Substitute back for \(u\), and you get \[\int_0^1 e^x\cos(e^x)dx=\sin(e^x)|_0^1\]

    u =e^x du = e^x dx \(\int cos udu\) ohh..now i could say that u =sin e^x is a better substitution..

    Yup, I like to call my method "guessing the solution and proving you're right"

    Although if you really had no clue of the solution, \(u=e^x\) would be a fine substitution. You would just have to integrate by parts.

    whenever i see a non-standard angle with sin/cos/.. i'll call that as 'bad angle' and put u= bad angle.... example : sin x^2 , cos log x ....

    how do we need integration by parts ?? O.o u= e^x du=e^xdx

    Oh. Right. You don't. Ignore my ramblings.
