ILATE means Inverse Logarithmic Algebraic Trigonometric and Exponential

and

ILAET would mean
Inverse Logarithmic Algebraic Exponential and Trigonometric

This is for assigning the priority while using integration by parts

It is not a hard and fast rule, sometimes it can be more easy
to integrate the trigonometric function and in other cases
the exponential function. That is why few books prefer the first and few
the later.

The logic is the idea that whatever function is easy to integrate becomes
the first choice, and so it can vary between trigonometric and exponential
function depending upon the question involved.
