The First and third bounding lines above have already been converted into (u, v) bounds and included below. DO NOT EVALUATE this integral. (Hint: You may use the fact that "Jacobian determinant" = -2 for this substitution.) $\displaystyle \int_{0}^{?} \int_{?}^{-1} ????? du dv$ My question is how to use the Jacobian determinant as substitution to find out the inner lower limit?

As for the Jacobian determinant, $\displaystyle x + y = 2u + 3 \Rightarrow u = \frac{x+y-3}{2}$ $\displaystyle x - y = 2v - 1 \Rightarrow v = \frac{x-y+1}{2}$ $\displaystyle \dfrac{\partial(u, v)}{\partial(x, y)} = \begin{vmatrix} \dfrac{\partial u}{\partial x} & \dfrac{\partial u}{\partial y}\\[1em] \dfrac{\partial v}{\partial x} & \dfrac{\partial v}{\partial y} \end{vmatrix}=\begin{vmatrix} \dfrac{\partial (x+y-3)/2}{\partial x} & \dfrac{\partial (x+y-3)/2}{\partial y}\\[1em] \dfrac{\partial (x-y+1)/2}{\partial x} & \dfrac{\partial (x-y+1)/2}{\partial y} \end{vmatrix}=\begin{vmatrix} \frac{1}{2} & \frac{1}{2}\\[1em] \frac{1}{2} & -\frac{1}{2} \end{vmatrix} = -\frac{1}{2}$ The Jacobian determinant has two definitions; one is the reciprocal of the other, and your textbook appears to use the other. Finally, $\displaystyle x + y = u + v + 1 + u - v + 2 = 2u+3$. So the integral is $\displaystyle \int_{0}^2 \int^{-1}_{-2} -2(2u+3) du dv$.
