# What is the equivalent of integration while multiplying continuous values? [duplicate]

We know that summation is for discrete values, and integration is the generalization of summation so that it can be extended to continuous values.

We also have product for discrete value, what is its continuous counter part?

• There is none. How would one define it in a consistent manner? – Don Thousand Mar 25 at 18:18
• I am not sure, that is why I ended up asking the question. As multiplication is commutative, shouldn't we be able to generalize it – VARUN.N RAO Mar 25 at 18:27
• Not really. Unless all but a finite number of values are 1, there is no way to define it properly. The linearity of addition makes it possible to define something like integration. – Don Thousand Mar 25 at 18:29
• Integration of the log? – David G. Stork Mar 25 at 19:18
• That seems to be wonderful!! – VARUN.N RAO Mar 25 at 20:11

Try: Integration of the logarithm.
