Hello, I'm trying to find out the normalization constant in a given wavefunction but I cannot. I think that this is a math problem because I cannot solve the integral of the probability density but your experience could help; I was trying several steps and I tried in the software "derive" but the answer didn't like to me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The wavefunction is ψ(x,t)= [b^2-(x-vt)^2]^(-1) , b is the normalization constant, and I must integrate it with respect to x in the interval -∞<x<∞.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Recall that the integral is of the square wavefunction, we are assuming that b and t are real constants.
