Thanks a lot!! Complete the square in the exponent to get Now the integral looks like From here just make a u sub for the exponent and then you will use both of your formula's for the integral
Is there a closed form solution for the below integration?
Yes, but you have to use the "special function" . Let . Then , and the integral becomes . The fact that you have in the exponential rather than complicates things and causes those "i" factors.
