ahmet 9 Posted July 16 (edited) is there such a definition in the content of integral account/calculation courses or in the content of calculus? I remember something like this: [math] \int^{v(x)}_{y=u(x)} f(x,y)dy [/math] if in this integral [math]f(x,y)[/math] function ( [math] \alpha \leq x \leq \beta [/math] and [math] a \leq y \leq b [/math] ) is derivable in the D region that characterized with the given inequalites in the paranthesis,then this region would be called as "regular region" but I am not sure about the exact definition could someone provide some more context about regular region (if possible)? thanks Edited July 16 by ahmet latex formula,correction on mathematical terms 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

What are you doing about x (a varaible) in the integral of f(x, y) dy ? Is this perhaps an attempt at the REgularity Theorem in the Calculus of Variations ?

HallsofIvy 6 Posted July 19 If I remember correctly, a region in $R^2$ is "regular" if its boundary is a simple closed curve. (And a curve is "simple" if it does not cross itself.) Yes, the rectangular region $a\le x\le b$, $c\le y \le d$ is a "regular region". As to the integral, $\int_{u(x)}^{v(x)} f(x,y)dy$, Assuming that f is an "integrable" function of y, then $\int_{u(x)}^{v(x)} f(x,y)dy$ is a function of x, F(x). I might think of the "x" as a "parameter" in the integral but as a variable in f(x,y) and in F(x). 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

I think you are talking about the graphs of functions. Do you know the definition of "function"? It follows immediately from that definition that the graph of any function, elementary or not, is a simple curve. In fact, the graph of $x^2+ y^2= 1$ is a circle, so a "simple curve" even though y is not a function of x nor is x a function of y.

To me,although during maths BSc program no one mentioned ( in spite of other very strict contexts ), (because that example is too simple to me ( 1= radius circle) I almost always was thinking it would not be accepted even as a function , because for instance when we draw the graph, it is possible to find two elements which their values (under the functions's rule) are same but, are not equal. ( here if x= sint ,y = cost ,e.g: for t=45 degree , [math] x^2+y^2=1 [/math] is being satisfied but there when the angle is 135 degree , y value is again same thus this should not be accepted as a function in fact) meanwhile, you might be right, because as I remember, the curves and functions are slightly different (probably there was continuoum between the definitions or homeomorphism,I do not remember well,sorry for that but can scan the documents if you want,or you might be better on this issue) the definition of function is simply f: A ---> B , every x element of A should have a value in B , and when [math] x_1=x_2 [/math] (these are element of A) and [math]f(x_1)=f(x_2)[/math] this is compulsory. E xamplifed above for circle. (circle equation is not a function) but if you specifically define it between 90-180 and 0-270 ,then well this will be accepted as a function. (but the domain set and value sets will be changed as you can predict) Edited August 18 by ahmet 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

studiot 2025 Posted August 18 Here are some definitions and uses of 'regular' in Mathematics. numbers 3, 4 and 5 under 'regular' itself seem the closest for your purposes. 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites
