1.2.1. "Ordinary". Derivatives. Question: Suppose we have a function of one
variable: f(x). What does the derivative, df/dx, do for us? Answer: It tells us how
rapidly the function f(x) varies when we change the argument x by a tiny amount,
dx: ...
The technique known (awkwardly) as integration by parts exploits the product
rule for derivatives: ... It pertains to the situation in which you are called upon to
integrate the product of one function (/) and the derivative of another (g); it says
you ...
Actually, this is a consequence of ( 1 ), for if there were a local maximum, V at that
point would be greater than on either side, and therefore could not be the
average. (Ordinarily, you expect the second derivative to be negative at a
maximum ...
