I am starting to teach myself quantum mech. in preperation for this coming semester, however i have hit a mathamatical road block. I need to normalize the folowing equation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]P(x)=Ae^{-\lambda(x-a)^{2}}[/tex]

Unfortunatly I do not take DiffEQ untill this coming semester and I dont know how to take the following integral.

[tex]\int e^{-\lambda(x-a)^{2}}[/tex]

Any help would be greatly appreciated (yes, I know that i should have taken DiffEQ before this...).
