Dear pradyot

Leibniz Integral Rule

The Leibniz integral rule gives a formula for differentiation of a definite integral whose limits are functions of the differential variable,



where the partial derivative of f indicates that inside the integral only the variation of ƒ ( x, α ) with α is considered in taking the derivative.


Here, we consider the integration of

\textbf I\;=\;\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\,\frac{1}{\left(a\,\cos^2\,x+b\,\sin^2\,x\right)^2}\;dx,\,

where both a,\,b\,>\,0, by differentiating under the integral sign.

Let us first find \textbf J\;=\;\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\,\frac{1}{a\,\cos^2\,x+b\,\sin^2\,x}\;dx.\,

Dividing both the numerator and the denominator by \cos^2\,x yields

  \begin{align}     \textbf J\;     &=\;\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\,\frac{\sec^2\,x}{a\,+b\,\tan^2\,x}\;dx     \\     &=\,\frac{1}{b}\,\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\,\frac{1}{\left(\sqrt{\,\frac{a}{b}\,}\right)^2+\tan^2\,x}\;d(\tan\,x)\,     \\     &=\,\frac{1}{\sqrt{\,a\,b\,}}\,\left(\tan^{-1}\left(\sqrt{\,\frac{b}{a}\,}\,\tan\,x\right)\right)\,\bigg|_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\;=\;\frac{\pi}{2\,\sqrt{\,a\,b\,}}.   \end{align}

The limits of integration being independent of a,\, \textbf J\;=\;\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\,\frac{1}{a\,\cos^2\,x+b\,\sin^2\,x}\;dx\, gives us

\frac{\partial\,\textbf J}{\partial\,a}\;=\;-\,\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\,\frac{\cos^2\,x\;dx}{\left(a\,\cos^2\,x+b\,\sin^2\,x\right)^2}\,

whereas \textbf J\;=\;\frac{\pi}{2\,\sqrt{\,a\,b\,}} gives us

\frac{\partial\,\textbf J}{\partial\,a}\;=\;-\frac{\pi}{4\,\sqrt{\,a^3\,b\,}}.\,

Equating these two relations then yields


In a similar fashion, pursuing \frac{\partial\,\textbf J}{\partial\,b}\, yields


Adding the two results then produces

\textbf I\;=\;\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\,\frac{1}{\left(a\,\cos^2\,x+b\,\sin^2\,x\right)^2}\;dx\;=\;\frac{\pi}{4\,\sqrt{\,a\,b\,}}\left(\frac{1}{a}+\frac{1}{b}\right),\,

which is the value of the integral \textbf I.\,
