Integration by parts help

  1. Nov 30, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How can i find the integral of [tex]\int e^{-x^{3}}dx[/tex]

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried using integration by parts, but it doesn't seem to give a nice way to solve either.

    Re: Integration

    I do not believe this integral exists in terms of elementary functions. Is it part of a question? If so, post the question.

    Sketch the domain of integration of the integral [tex]\int^{1}_{0}dy\int^{1}_{\sqrt{y}} e^{-x^{3}}dx [/tex] and then evaluate it.

    Re: Integration

    Are you answering you own question? If so, that's nonsense.
