Introduction The problem considered in the following pages is what is sometimes called the problem of indefinite integration or of finding a function whose diflferential coefficient is a given function .T hese descriptions are vague and in some ways misleading; and it is necessary to define our problem more precisely before we proceed further. Let us suppose for the moment that f(x) is a real continuous function of the real variable x. We wish to determine a function y, whose differential coefficient is (), or to solve the equation !=(-) (1)- A little reflection shows that this problem may be analysed into a number of parts. We wish, first, to know whether such a function as ynecessarily exists, whether the equation (l) has always a solution; whether the solution, if it exists, is unique; and what relations hold between different solutions, if there are more than one. The answers to these questions are contained in that part of the theory of functions of a real variable which deals with definite integrals .T he definite integral y=r(t)dt (2), Ja which is defined as the limit of a certain sum, is a solution of the equation (1). Further ?+G (3), where Gis an arbitrary constant, is also a solution, and all solutions of (1) are of the form (3).
