Overview

constant of integration


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

If φ is a particular antiderivative of a continuous function f, then any antiderivative of f differs from φ by a constant. It is common practice, therefore, to write

f(x)dx=φ(x)+c,

where c, an arbitrary constant, is the constant of integration.
