This may be a bug in Integrate. I verified that kernel 2.2.2 cannot do it
either; but if you combine the factors in the integrand, you get an answer:
In[1]:= Integrate[ E^((s + I wkm) t), {t, -Infinity, T} ]
Out[1]=
T (s + I wkm)
E
--------------
s + I wkm
->The integral with finite limits
-> Integrate[E^(s^2 t) E^(I wmk t),{t,-A,T}]
->can be computed, but the limit cannot. What it so difficult about
->limit of E^(s^2 t) at t-> -Infinity?
Actually, I was about to say that I'm not sure the answer above is
appropriate. You may be thinking that s is real, but Mathematica doesn't
know that (and perhaps should not assume it). I assume you feel the limit
is 0; but what if s = I?
->2. I need to make MMA compute the integrals like this:
-> Int[t Sum[f[k],{k,Infinity}],{t,0,1}]
->and
-> Int[If[m == n, t, t^2], {t,0,1}]
->to
-> Sum[f[k],{k,Infinity}]
->and
-> If[m == n, 1, 1/2]
->respectively.
You can write your own integration function to do all this:
In[1]:= Clear[ int ];
In[2]:= int[ x_ Sum[ z__ ], y_List ] :=
Sum[ z ] Integrate [x, y ] /; FreeQ[ z, y[[1]] ]
In[3]:= int[ If[ a_, b_, c_ ], d_List ] :=
If[ a,
Evaluate[ Integrate[ b, d ] ],
Evaluate[ Integrate[ c, d ] ]
]
In[4]:= int[ x_, y_List ] := Integrate[ x, y ]
In[5]:= int[ t Sum[ f[k], {k, Infinity} ], {t, 0, 1} ]
Out[5]=
Sum[f[k], {k, Infinity}]
------------------------

In[6]:= int[ If[ m== n, t, t^2 ], {t, 0, 1} ]
Out[6]=
1 1
If[m == n, -, -]
