### Definition of integration

The derivative of a function is defined by $$f^{\prime}(x)=\lim_{\Delta x \to 0}{\frac{f(x+\Delta x)-f(x)}{\Delta x}}$$ provided the limit exists. For example for $f(x)=\sin(x)$ we can prove that ...

### Why is $(\sec x)' = \tan x\sec x$ and not $\tan x$?

As far as I understood, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus states that the integral of a function is its anti-derivative. And yet, although the integral of $\tan x$ is $\sec x$, the derivative of ...
