2. [tex]\psi(x,0)=Cexp\left (-\frac{\left |x \right |}{x_0} \right )[/tex]

3. [tex]\\ \psi(x,0)=Cexp\left (-\frac{\left |x \right |}{x_0} \right )\\

\Rightarrow \psi(x,0)=Cexp\left ( -\frac{x}{x_0} \right ) \ for \ x\geq 0 \\

and \ \psi(x,0)=Cexp\left ( \frac{x}{x_0} \right ) \ for \ x<0[/tex]

My thoughts were to split the absolute value up, but I am unsure. Also, I am unsure as to how to choose the bounds for normalizing. Should it just be over (-∞,+∞)?
