That is, it has an area of 2, just as we calculated with the Riemann integral. ), I must take a time-out here and tell you that the Riemann integral (and its area interpretation) is not the end of the line when it comes to integration. In 1902 the French mathematician Henri Lebesgue (1875–1941) extended the Riemann integral to be able to handle integrand functions that, in no obvious way, bound an area. There are such functions; probably the most famous is the one cooked-up in 1829 by the German mathematician Lejeune Dirichlet (1805–1859): Try drawing a sketch of ϕ(x)—and I’ll bet you can’t!

Multiplying out the numerator, and then doing the long division of the result by the denominator, we get ð1 I¼ x6 À 4x5 þ 5x4 À 4x2 þ 4 À 0 4 1 þ x2 dx, integrations that are all easily done to give 1 1 x ð 1 À xÞ @x À 2x þ x5 À 4x þ 4x À 4 tan À1 ðxÞA dx ¼ I¼ 1 þ x2 7 3 3 0 ð1 4 0 4 7 6 3 0 ¼ 1 2 4 À þ 1 À þ 4 À π: 7 3 3 That is, ð1:7:1Þ Since the integrand is never negative, we know that I > 0 and so we have the sudden (and, I think, totally unexpected) result that 22 7 > π. That is, the classic schoolboy approximation to π is an overestimate, a fact that is not so easy to otherwise establish.

P. Dalzell, a curious fellow who is mostly a ghost in the history of mathematics. All of the modern references to Dalzell’s integral make no mention of the man, himself, even though he wrote a number of high quality mathematical papers and had an excellent reputation among mathematicians. Dalzell didn’t help his cause by his habit of always using his initials. In fact, he was Donald Percy Dalzell (1898–1988), who graduated in 1921 from St. John’s College, Cambridge, in mathematics and mechanical sciences.
