[tex]I(t)=f(t)\ast(\int_{0}^{\infty}\exp(-x^{2}\pm\frac{\allowbreak i}{x})dx)[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In this function, the integral must surely come out to be a constant and so I(t)=A*f(t) where A is a constant.

However, the integral does not seem possible using Mathematica and so I must ask the questions:

a) is Mathematica wrong and the integral indeed possible?

b) if the integral is not possible, is it still legitimate to allow it be equal to some constant, A?
