using "and which"


Please help me to bring out the meaning and role ( function) of "and which, using integration" in the following sentence. "These produce results that would be more difficult and tedious to obtain by integration, and which, using integration, may be expressed in a form that is more difficult to interpret and understand"

Which is a pronoun.  It refers to something previously mentioned (the results) and is used at the beginning of a clause that is going to provide additional information about that thing. 


You may get a little confused because it is followed by [, using integration,].  This is a non-essential phrase and is surrounded by commas.  the sentence can stand on its own without it. 


, and which may be expressed....
