Evaluate $\displaystyle \int \int (x+y) e^{xy} $ over the triangle with corners (0, 0), (1, 1), and (1, 1), using x = (u + v)/2, y = (u  v)/2 Is there any systematic method to determine the new boundaries of u and v? Last edited by zollen; August 2nd, 2017 at 04:30 PM.

you lost me at $x = (u+v)=2, ~y=(uv)=2$ do you mean $x = \dfrac{u+v}{2},~y = \dfrac{uv}{2}$ ?

You may have forgotten the Jacobian. No matter. You have already answered my question.

But as you noticed they were off by a factor of 2 which is the determinant of the Jacobian, which in this case is just the transform matrix.

The triangle's vertices will be given by (u, v) = (0, 0), (0, 2) and (2, 0). The uaxis and the vaxis are perpendicular. Make a rough sketch.
