EDIT: I solved it. Sorry for waste of time! :((adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is the function ψ[x]:

0.0000551056 a^{0.25}(30240. a^{0.5}x - 80640. a^{1.5}x^{3}+

48384. a^{2.5}x^{5}- 9216. a^{3.5}x^{7}+ 512. a^{4.5}x^{9})^{(-((a x2)/2))}

I am trying to integrate ψ[x]*ψ[x] over all space (-infinity to +infinity).

I don't get any error messages... it just says "running" for a good 5 minutes. Then it grinds to a halt and spits out the integral in its unsolved form.

I have attached the notebook file if anyone is curious. I'm just really stumped on this one.
