I'm doing a fourier transform of a gaussian wavepacket, so I can get the momentum representation of the wave... To progress I need to evaluate the following integral:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Int{exp[-(sigma^2.x^2 + bx)/4k].cos[(tx^2 - cx)/8k]}dx

with sigma, b,k,t and c all being constants, and the limits being ±infinity.

Any help would be much appreciated!
