I have an integral of the form (from -inf to inf):(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

∫exp((a+ib)x^{2}+icx)dx

How do I solve that?

I have tried setting y = √(a+ib)(x+ic/√(a+ib))

And you then get an integral of exp(-y^{2}) times a constant. But I don't even know if this is legal since part of the exponentials are complex. Is it possible to obtain the result with my method?
