In the axiomatic formulation of differential geometry given by synthetic differential geometry the standard Kock-Lawvere axiom provides a notion of differentiation. In general this need not come with an inverse operation of integration. The additional integration axiom on a smooth topos does ensure this.
(integration axiom)
Let $(\mathcal{T}, R)$ be a smooth topos and let the line object $R$ be equipped with the structure of a partial order $(R, \leq)$ compatible with its ring structure $(R, +, \cdot)$ in the obvious way.
Then for any $a, b\in R$ write
We say that $(\mathcal{T},(R,+,\cdot,\leq))$ satisfies the integration axiom if for all such intervals, all functions on the interval arise uniquely as derivatives on functions on the interval that vanish at the left boundary:
… need to say more …
The axiom holds for all the smooth topos presented in MSIA, listed in appendix 2 there. See appendix 3 for the proof.
