This can inform us what is driving the variability shortterm integrals or longterm effects.

In mathematics, Newton was the first to develop a full range of algorithms for symbolically determining what we now call integrals and derivatives, but he subsequently became fundamentally opposed to the idea, championed by Leibniz, of transforming mathematics into a discipline grounded in symbol manipulation.

As a Mathematica kernel developer for calculus functions, I have collected many fascinating examples that illustrate the worldclass functionality for computing integrals, solving differential equations, and other operations available in Mathematica.

I took Calc I and did ok until the very end of the semester when we started getting into complex integrals.

Meanwhile, all sorts of things that at one time or another were considered tests for artificial intelligence — playing chess, doing integrals, doing autonomous control — have been cracked in algorithmic ways.

For example, the following system of differential equations can be solved in terms of Fresnel integrals.

But derivatives, integrals, and diff eqs are used throughout engineering.

Yeah, outside of Calc I (derivatives and integrals) and differential equations (ODE is ordinary differential equations), the rest of the Calc (Calc II and III) is not so important.

You can plot 2D graphs and you can work with matrices, do complex integrals, calculate very large factorials, and that's the most simple stuff. try matrices: or differential equations:

I'm doing my masters in Economics, the kind of maths tools used in the course are calculus (including integrals), Linear and NonLinear Programming and Stats tools like Time Series, Regression, Probability etc.
