A Riemann type integration and the fundamental theorem of calculus

  • Washek F. Pfeffer


In a self-contained presentation aimed to non-specialists, we discuss the recent development of a new, well behaved, Riemann type integral on differentiable manifolds with respect to which the exterior derivative of any differentiable form is integrable and the Stokes formula holds.


If one can calculate the integral of a function then the function ought to be integrable
