- find A

- Relevant Equations
- psi = A exp [ - x^2 / (2+ix) ]

I'm given the wavefunction

and I need to find the normalization constant A.

I believe that means to solve the integral

The question does give some standard results for the Gaussian function, also multiplied by x to some different powers in the integrand, but I can't seem to get it into that form.

Whatever I do, I get an x in the denominator of the exponent, and makes it impossible to solve for me.
