This is an integral that Mathematica doesn't seem to be able to do. I don't know how to tackle it either.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The general form is

[tex]\int^\infty_{-\infty} dz \arctan [d \sqrt{p^2 + z^2}]e^{-b z^2 - i c z} (p^2 + z^2)^n[/tex]

I've thought about integration by parts, by substitution, contour integration, but none of these methods seem suitable. Any help would be much appreciated.
