A strange probability integral
Evaluate:

$\int_{0}^{1} \frac{\gamma}{\beta^3} \frac{e^{-\frac{\gamma^2}{2\beta^2}}}{\pi \sqrt{1 - \beta^2}} \, d\beta$

Where $\gamma$ is a constant. I am hoping the answer will resemble the Gaussian distribution. :)

Thanks,

The thread that motivated this integral might also be of interest: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...tml#post155928

I'm sure statistics is much more interesting to everybody now ....... (Rofl)
