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

I've been trying to evaluate the following integral

[tex] \int_{z}^{\infty}\exp\left(-y^{2}\right)\mathrm{erf}\left(b\left(y-c\right)\right)\,\mathrm{d}y [/tex]

or equivalently

[tex] \int_{z}^{\infty}\exp\left(-y^{2}\right)\mathrm{erfc}\left(b\left(y-c\right)\right)\,\mathrm{d}y [/tex]

[tex]\mathrm{erf}\left(x\right)=\frac{2}{\sqrt{\pi}} \int_{0}^{x}\exp\left(-u^{2}\right)\,\mathrm{d}u, \quad\quad \mathrm{erfc}\left(x\right)=1-\mathrm{erf}\left(x\right)=\frac{2}{\sqrt{\pi}} \int_{x}^{+\infty}\exp\left(-u^{2}\right)\,\mathrm{d}u[/tex]

I guess I tried to employ all techniques I'm familiar with but with no result.

Can anyone help me with this one, please?

Thank you!
