## Main Question or Discussion Point

How do I solve the integral of the functions x*exp(-a(x-b)^2) and x^2(exp(-a(x-b)^2) where a and b are positive real numbers?

I tried integration by parts and cannot think of how to find the integral. In addition, while I was able to find exp(-a(x-b)^2) in an integral table, the two functions I listed above, I was not able to find. Any hints, suggestions, or integration tables you can point me towards would be appreciated.
