25.1 Parametric Differentiation: Method

Idea: If  then

In particular, if we can do integrals of the form

for y near 1, we can also do integrals of the form


How? By differentiating the answer and the integrand with respect to y, k times.

All this works perfectly when there are no convergence problems in the integral.
