Out of curiosity, what is the integrated rate law for a third order reaction?

If we were to keep it in the linearized form that makes it easy to plot reaction data and see what kind of order a reaction is, the rate law for a third order reaction would be 1/[A]^2 = 2kt + 1/[Ai]^2, with Ai representing the initial concentration of some reactant A.
