I am studying this course on statistical mechanics, about BBGKY

The last identity of page 48.I dont understand how that integrations by part work.

I have tried to simplify the cases to be s=1,N=3, it still is not clear to me~~~

Hi cpchung,

could you insert the equation directly into the question? This would be helpful for people who want to answer.

how can I insert the formula, type set this equation here?

At the top of the answer box there are buttons that you can explore. You can also use ordinary latex between dollar signs.

Which identity, exactly? The transition from which equation to which equation is unclear to you? The transition from III.23 to III.25 seems to be clearly explained, at least at first glance.
