    Exponential function question....

    y=ae^(b(x^2-1))

    I am free to change either 'a' or 'b' or even the power of x if needed (although this would complicate something else further down the line).

    Which of my variables would increase the curvature of the function?

    Thanks

    Nic

    I believe the OP is referring to this.
