UNIT 1. DERIVATIVES OF AND INTEGRALS YIELDING TRANSCENDENTAL FUNCTIONS In your basic calculus, you were already introduced with limits, derivatives, and integrals.
However, you may observe that the functions that are usually considered are algebraic in nature, i.e.,
polynomial functions, square root functions, rational functions, etc. In this section, we will deal with a
class of functions different from algebraic functions called transcendental functions. These includes
trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, among
others.
For the first Unit, derivatives of and integrals yielding this type of functions will be discussed.
Moreover, a technique in solving derivatives of “convoluted” functions, called logarithmic
differentiation, will also be introduced. We will also look into some application problems such as
optimization and related rates problem that involves derivatives of transcendental functions. Lastly, we
evaluate limits of functions of indeterminate forms using L’Hopital’s Rule.
Our goals for this unit are as follows. By the end of the unit, you should be able to
✓

✓ find derivatives of transcendental functions;
solve integrals of and integrals yielding transcendental functions;
apply logarithmic differentiation appropriately;
apply derivatives of and integrals yielding transcendental functions to real-world
problems in various fields; and
evaluate limits of functions using L'Hopital's rule. REMINDER: Before proceeding to the first section of this unit, students are advised to refer to
pages 1-4 of Module I. Derivatives of MATH 27 BASIC CALCULUS Preparatory Modules to
better understand the concept of derivative and the use of chain rule in solving derivatives involving
algebraic functions. The given rules on differentiation will also hold for transcendental functions,
which is the concern of this course.
1.1 Derivatives of and Integrals Yielding Trigonometric Functions
First on the list is trigonometric function. We first determine the derivatives of this type of
function. Integrals yielding trigonometric functions will directly follow. In the later sections, integrals of
trigonometric functions will also be considred.
Recall the following facts for basic trigonometric functions:

Using the definition of a derivative,
′ () = → it can be shown that ( + ) − () ( ) = and ( ) = − . MATH 27 Lecture Guide UNIT 1 (IMSP,UPLB) Function
() = () = () = tan 1 Now, formulate ( ) and ( ) using the result above. The first few steps are
already written.
TO DO: ( ) = (

) = [( )− ] Following the same procedure, it can also be shown that ( ) = − and ( ) = ( ) = ( ) = ( ) = ( ) = − ( ) = − ( ) = − It is a fact that the previously discussed trigonometric functions are differentiable over their
respective domains.
To aid in remembering things, we can think of the trigonometric functions as pairs, such that
the derivative of the “co-function” is always negative. In particular, we can pair sine with cosine,
tangent with cotangent, and secant with cosecant. This pairing will be very useful as we go through
the succeeding sections.
If the argument of a trigonometric function is a differentiable function of the variable , then
we can use Chain Rule to obtain its corresponding derivative. MATH 27 Lecture Guide UNIT 1 (IMSP,UPLB) MUST REMEMBER!!! Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions 2 MUST REMEMBER!!! CHAIN RULE: Derivatives of trigonometric functions

We now consider integrals yielding trigonometric functions. We first recall the process of
antidifferentiation given in basic calculus.
Recall that
′ () = () ⇒ ∫ () = () + In this case, we call () an antiderivative of (). We also say that the indefinite integral of
() with respect to is ()

recommended that students should refer to pages 1-3 of Module II. INTEGRALS of MATH 27

thranscendental functions.

The given inverse trigonometric functions are continuous over their respective domains
except for the endpoints of the interval if they exist. Hence, derivatives of the said class of
transcendental functions exist at some points. We first formulate the derivative of the inverse sine
function using the derivative of the sine function and implicit differentiation. Recall that ( ) = .

∫ ∫ ∫ √ − = + = + + √ − = + The given facts can be verified by getting the derivative of the integrand and showing that it is
equal to the right hand side of the equation. Moreover, it can be shown that
∫ √ − = − + . The same is true for the other integrals on the list. However, as a matter of convention, we will use the
former result.
You might also observe that integrals yielding inverse trigonometric functions involve
polynomials in the form of sum or difference of two squares. So, whenever you see a sum of two
squares or a difference two squares as a radicand, more often than not, that integral will yield inverse
trigonometric function.

theorems on differentiation to solve the given problem, it is undeniable that the process is quite
tedious. In addition, the probability of committing errors in computation is also high since it involves
multiple processes. MATH 27 Lecture Guide UNIT 1 (IMSP,UPLB) 1.4 Logarithmic Differentiation 16 In this section, we will introduce an alternative way of solving problems of the same nature as
the one given earlier. This method, called logarithmic differentiation, makes it easier to deal with
differentiating “super products,” “super quotients,” and composite functions in the form of function
raised to another function like () = ( ) .

difference instead of quotients and products instead of exponentiations.
