## 7.1. Riemann Integral

### Definition 7.1.8: The Riemann Integral

Suppose f is a bounded function defined on a closed, bounded interval . Define the upper and lower Riemann integrals, respectively, as
I*(f) = inf{ U(f,P): P a partition of [a, b]}
I*(f) = sup{ L(f,P): P a partition of [a, b]}
Then if I*(f) = I*(f) the function f is called Riemann integrable and the Riemann integral of f over the interval [a, b] is denoted by
f(x) dx
