    integration by parts problem

    is it possible to integrate something like e^x.\frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}}

    because neither part will cancel so i just keep getting stuck in a perpetual loop

    Note that : e^x=e^{\left( \sqrt{x} \right)^2}

    If you substitute u=\sqrt{x}, you will get :

    \int e^{u^2} \, du , which is well-known unelementary integral ..

    Your integral can not be expressed in terms of elemenetary integrals ..
