Path integral over probability functional

  1. Hi. Can anyone tell me how to solve the path integral

    [tex] \int D F \exp \left\{ - \frac{1}{2} \int_{t'}^{t} d \tau \int_{t'}^{\tau} ds F(\tau) A^{-1}(\tau - s) F(s) + i \int_{t'}^{t} d\tau F(\tau) \xi(\tau) \right\} [/tex]

    In case my Latex doesn't work the integral is over all possible forces F over the functional

    \exp \left\{ - \frac{1}{2} \int_{ t' } ^{ t } d \tau \int_{ t' } ^{ \tau } ds F( \tau ) A^{-1} ( \tau - s ) F( \tau) + i \int_{ t' } ^{t} d \tau F( \tau ) \xi ( \tau ) \right\}

    I have tried to solve it by making the discrete Fourier transform of the functions F, A^{-1} and \xi but I run into some trouble when doing that.
