# Integral Calculus

via Brilliant

### Overview

In a sense, differential calculus is local: it focuses on aspects of a function near a given point, like its rate of change there. Integral calculus complements this by taking a more complete view of a function throughout part or all of its domain.

This course provides complete coverage of the two essential pillars of integral calculus: integrals and infinite series. By the end, you'll know their core principles and how to apply them to problems in geometry, probability, and physics.
