Improper integral of type 1

## Improper integral of type 1: Infinite interval

Let f (x) be integrable on [a, b], ∀b > a. Then, the
Rb ∞

integral lim f (x)dx : = f (x)dx is called an improper
b→∞ a a
integral of type 1. Similarly:

Rb def R
lim a f (x)dx : = f (x)dx

−∞ −∞ a

If the limit exists as a finite number (6= ∞), then the in-
tegral is called convergent. If not, then the integral is
divergent.
