    i am making a matlab model of cam follower interaction for measureing friction but need help with this integral
    f(x) = ∫e^(1-(x^2)/(b^2))dx the limits are -b to b , take the value of b = 3
    when i used the ( int )function in matlab it tells that the explicit answer doesn't exist ,so how to solve this in matlab ?
    i used simpsons 3 8 rule to find the answer on paper but how to find it in matlab ?
