Gaussian distribution other than standard form

  1. May 22, 2013 #1
    what changes does there occur in the result of the gaussian distribution "integration e^-alpha*x^2 dx=sqrt(pi/alpha) if i substitute that x^2 with some (x-a)^2?
    then what should be the integral result ?

    The same as for any function where you shift the origin.
