Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have found that Mathematica 6.0 refuses to solve the following integration:

Integrate[ Exp[-i t u] (1-2 i t a)^(-0.5) (1 - 2 i t b)^(-0.5) , {t,-inf,+inf}, Assumptions->u>0,a>0,b>0 ]

where i = SQRT(-1)

I cannot understand why the integral cannot be done, does anyone know of a reason why Mathematicca won't solve this problem?
