## Homework Statement

I am unfamiliar with LaTeX (is there a tutorial around, or should I just wing it and risk posting a potential mess?). my problem is that I need to normalize a wave function:

psi(x,t) = Ae^(-bx)e^(-iwt). there are no constraints given.

## Homework Equations

integral of psi*psi = 1, limits of integration are negative infinity to positive infinity

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know that if I use the complex conjugates (psi*psi) the exponential expressions will cancel and I will be left integrating a constant. I get A

^{2}x |

_{-[tex]\infty[/tex]}

^{[tex]\infty[/tex]}= 1, which doesnt make much sense. I know this question is relatively easy and that I'm probably missing something simple, but I've been away from this material for a few years and getting back into it is a little rough.

Any help is appreciated!
