Get an inactive expression representing an integration by parts

Contributed by: Wolfram|Alpha Math Team
 ResourceFunction["IntegrateByParts"][f,x] returns the Inactive indefinite integration by parts of f with respect to x. ResourceFunction["IntegrateByParts"][f,{x,xmin,xmax}] returns the Inactive definite integration by parts of f with respect to x from xmin to xmax. ResourceFunction["IntegrateByParts"][f,x|{x,xmin,xmax},"Grid"] returns the Inactive integration by parts in a Grid highlighting the particular of u and dv that were used.

## Details and Options

Integration by parts is a technique for computing integrals, both definite and indefinite, that makes use of the chain rule for derivatives.
For an integral , choose u and v such that f[x]x uv. Then, by computing u and integrating v to get v, we can write .

## Examples

### Basic Examples (2)

Integrate by parts:

 In[1]:=
 Out[1]=

Use Activate to evaluate the result:

 In[2]:=
 Out[2]=

Integrate xx by parts on the domain 0x1:

 In[3]:=
 Out[3]=

Use Activate to fully evaluate the integral:

 In[4]:=
 Out[4]=

### Scope (1)

To view the particular u and dv that were used to integrate by parts, use the optional third argument "Grid":

 In[5]:=
 Out[5]=

### Options (2)

Use the option "ShowOtherDecompositions" to return a list of possible integrations by parts:

 In[6]:=
 Out[6]=

The optional third argument "Grid" can be combined with the option "ShowOtherDecompositions":

 In[7]:=
 Out[7]=

### Applications (1)

Prove the reduction formula:

 In[8]:=
 Out[8]=

### Possible Issues (2)

IntegrateByParts will return results, sometimes by the trivial decomposition uexpr and v⩵1ⅆx:

 In[9]:=
 Out[9]=

If the given definite integral does not converge on the domain given, IntegrateByParts returns unevaluated with a message:

 In[10]:=
 Out[10]=

### Neat Examples (4)

Compute an integral by integrating by parts twice:

 In[11]:=
 Out[11]=

Choose and then integrate by parts again:

 In[12]:=
 Out[12]=

Therefore we have:

Which can be simplified to:
