ONE OF MANY ERRORS IN CALCULUS. In the calculus there are mistakes in establishment of rules and general view's formulas because some special cases were given sense of the general view. For example: The formula is difined as a formula general view for family of antiderivative, including as one of a many, but . For a justification of that the not proof the formula which contradicts established rule was entered, because To show that antiderivative isn't the one of family of antiderivatives , because equal full and partial derivatives isn't the basis for complete identification of two different orocess of their receiving, I will give argument and proof. Argument: 1. . For integration of a partal derivative it is nessesary to use indefenite integral . 2. . For integration of a full derivative it is necessary to use integral with indefinite borders of integration . 3.  incorrectly,  true. Proof: WE INVESTIGATE FUNCTION, WITH THE CONSTANT OF INTEGRATION EQUAL TO ZERO, FOR THIS PURPOSE, TO PROVE ITS SEPARATE CASE OF ANTIDERIVATIVE NOT ENTERING INTO FAMILY WITH NONZERO CONTANTS OF INTEGRATION ! Integral application for a case of C=0(!!!) leads to its such look: . (2) ;  contradicts (2) ATTENTION ! according a statement of the problem! P.S. It is translated by means of the robot because I from Russia and badly understand English.

I think that it is a mistake: It will be so correct: because: You understand?

Sorry, but you have missed the deadline for "Best (worst) crank, 2012"

Below you write and , by which I think you mean and , neither makes sense because you have not defined either "r" or "m". Basically, I don't see why you are making a distinction between "u" and "y". They are simply different letters that you are using to represent two functions that have the same derivative. You may be misunderstanding the two parts of the "Fundamental Theorem of Calculus". Part I says that if we define where a can be any number and f is some integrable function (continuous would be sufficient) then F is differentiable and Part II says if then . Notice that there are no limit of integration on that integral it is an "indefinite" integral. The integral in part I is some specific number because F(x) must be a specific function. For example, if we define then again. That's "part I". On the other hand, . IF you defined (note the lower limit) then it would be correct that any function u, such that du/dx= f(x), must be of the form u(x)= y(x)+ C. In general, if you are just beginning the study of something that has been around for several hundred years, rather than rushing to annouce that you have found an "error" in you might at least consider the possiblity that you have misunderstood.

Quote: Quote: C can be any number. In your original formulation, , there was no mention of "r" so it would be incorrect to arbitrarily add one. However, I think I finally see where you are coming from. If you have a function of two variables, , then, yes, . Now, you know that when you are taking the partial derivative of a function of two variables, such as f(x, r), with respect to one of the variables, x here, you treat the other function as a constant. So if you have then, taking the antiderivative of both sides, you might think "the antiderivative always includes an added 'constant of integration' but because with partial derivatives, we treat the other variable as a constant, that "added constant" could be a function of r". That is, knowing that f is a function of r and x, and , then where can be any function of r. Note that one part of the "fundamental theorem of Calculus" says that if , then . That is, knowing the result of the integration, we can exactly recover f(x). But the other way is not true. Knowing only that we cannot exactly recover F we can only get F "up to an added constant". There exist an infinite number of functions that have the same derivative. Similarly, with a function of several variables, knowing , you cannot exactly recover F, only "up to an added function of the other variables". All of that, I am sure, is in your textbook. This same sort of situation occurs in algebra, not just Calculus. If we know that then we know for certain that . But if we know that we only know that either x= 2 or x= 2. These are all specific examples of what mathematicians call the "inverse" problem. If we are given a "function", which might be an algebraic function, a operator on funcions such as the derivative, we are given some formula which gives a specific result for any specific "input", so that, give x, we can use the formula to find the single value y= f(x), guarenteed by the definition of "function". But corresponding to any such "function", there is the inverse problem: given y, find x such that f(x)= y. And that problem may have many or an infinite number of solutions and there may be no "formula" or "algorithm" for solving it.
