The founders of the calculus
thought of the integral as an infinite sum of rectangles of infinitesimal
width. A rigorous mathematical definition of the integral was given by Bernhard Riemann. It is based on a limiting procedure which approximates the area of a curvilinear region by breaking the region into thin vertical slabs.
