Integrating Complex Exponentials

  1. Aug 6, 2011 #1
    The integral of a complex exponential ( e^(ix) ) over x from 0 to infinity is supposedly such that the value of the definite integral at the upper limit is zero and so it's just -1/i. Why is this? It's just an oscillating function after all.

    Nevermind, I figured it out a way to prove it.
