The Leibniz rule[edit]

The integral

is a function of the parameter . Show that the derivative of is given by

This relation is also known as the Leibniz rule.

Proof:

We have,

Now,

Since is essentially constant over the infinitesimal intervals and , we may write

Taking the limit as , we get

or,
