Re: integrating sin(x^-1)

ok so i didnt understand any of this once again sorry for being difficult :oops: Even better, you can modify your example to a case in which the function is nowhere continuous, but still (Riemman) integrable. Take f(x) = \begin{cases} 1/n & : x \in \mathbb{Q} \land x=m/n \\ 0 &am...

embarassment part, we were never taught what it means to be "integrable" beyond, it has to be continuous. :oops:

Re: integrating sin(x^-1)

i think im lost in how it does not exist, sorry if not thinking quite as fast It does exist, don't worry -- they were just talking about whether or not your original post actually shows that it exists or not (it doesn't -- you need to do more than show that the function is bounded to show that it i...

Re: integrating sin(x^-1)

He said "real and finite integral", which indicates that the integral exists. dammit, I really need to stop skimming what people write. :? i think im lost in how it does not exist, sorry if not thinking quite as fast i do see how it would be 0 since sin is an even function, but what if we...

integrating sin(x^-1)

how do you integrate sin(x^-1) in the domain of [-1,1] is it possible? i know for a fact that its a real number [spoiler=proof]Sin has a range of [-1,1] and the problem gives it a domain of [-1,1] thus the maximum area the above problem could have is the area of the rectangle created (1-(-1))*(1-(-1...
