Cauchy was born in Paris, studied engineering there and worked for a time in construction, then became a professor at the Ecole Polytechnique in 1816 and later at the Collège de France.
From 1848 to 1852 Cauchy was a professor at the Sorbonne.
In 1805 Cauchy provided a simple solution to the problem of Apollonius, namely to describe a circle touching three given circles, and in 1816 he published a paper on wave modulation.

Improper integrals usually turn up when the range of the function is infinite or, in the case of the Riemann integral, when the domain is infinite.

In probability theory (and especially gambling), the expected value (or mathematical expectation) of a random variable is the sum of the probability of each possible outcome of the experiment multiplied by its payoff (value).
In statistics, the mode is the value that has the largest number of observations, namely the most frequent value or values.
If a probability distribution has a density function f(x) then the mean or expected value is In mathematics, a probability distribution assigns to every interval of the real numbers a probability, so that the probability axioms are satisfied.

 Encyclopedia: Principal value   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In considering complex multiple-valued functions in complex analysis, the principal values of a function are the values along one chosen branch of that function, so it is single-valued.
For simplicity, the branch corresponding to k=0 is known as the principal branch, and along this branch, the values the function takes are known as the principal values.
Determining the principal value of some of these functions can be obtained by decomposing the function into simpler ones whereby the principal value of the simple functions are straightforward to obtain.

 Improper integral - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In some cases, the integral from a to c is not even defined, because the integrals of the positive and negative parts of f(x) dx from a to c are both infinite, but nonetheless the limit may exist.
Such cases are "properly improper" integrals, i.e., their values cannot be defined except as such limits.
From the point of view of mathematical analysis it is not necessary to interpret it that way, since it may be interpreted instead as a Lebesgue integral over the set (0, ∞).

Examples include the Cauchy dist. in statistics, which has a mean in the CPV sense but not in the classical sense, and examples in PDEs (say, via complex maps) where this is a physically meaningful interpretation.
The usual sense of the doubly improper integral is a more restrictive notion--notice that the CPV can give a finite value to the integral of a function which is unbounded as x-->+/- infinity, which may seem a bit strange.
Yes, and what's worse, the CPV is _not_ a "stable" value for the integral; if you evaluate the integral using change-of-variables you might get a different answer.

The Cauchy distribution is often cited as an example of a distribution which has no mean, variance or higher moments defined, although its mode and median are well defined and both zero.

In both cases, the idea is to consider the improper integrals as limits that are symmetrically computed about the point of discontinuity (in the first case, the point of discontinuity is at infinity).
In light of this, you are probably wondering why the improper integral itself is not defined to be the Cauchy principal value.
Still, the CPV exists and is not without its uses, for example, in the computation of Hilbert transforms, or other more advanced topics in real and complex analysis.

It is also an example of a more generalized version of the central limit theorem that is characteristic of all Lévy skew alpha-stable distributions, of which the Cauchy distribution is a special case.
The location-scale family to which the Cauchy distribution belongs is closed under linear fractional transformations with real coefficients.

Cauchy's Theorem on an arbitrary open set O, stated and proved in Section 3.2, is quite powerful and easy to use.
In this version of Cauchy's Theorem, the condition that O be convex is replaced by the condition that the contour have winding number zero with respect to every point outside O ("the contour is homologous to zero in O").
Pay special attention to the boundary value problems in which the domain is the upper half-plane, so that the boundary is the real axis; and in which the boundary-value function takes on a finite number of values, each on an interval of the real axis.
