Homework Help: How to do this integral?

  1. Apr 15, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    int(f*(x-y/2)f(x+y/2)dx) from -infinity to infinity

    * denotes complex conjugation

    y can be treated as a constant in this integral.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have tried the Fourier convolution theorem but that didn't seem to work.

    Don't you have any kind of information on f?

    f is meant to be the usual coordinate space wave function. So you can think of it as psi but no more specific information than that.
