When the antiderivatives involved exceed typical mental expectations, a more sophisticated method is needed, however.
In place of derivatives and antiderivatives, we shall extended this to all formally selfadjoint constant-coeffcient differential-difference operators.
Although these systems have been widely available for many years and have undergone major enhancements in new versions, it is interesting to note that there are still indefinite integrals that escape the capacity of these systems to provide antiderivatives.
They did not have our modern concept of function, were uneasy with limits, and they certainly did not know about antiderivatives or fundamental theorems.
These types of activities then allow students to see the important relationship between the definite integral and antiderivatives.
