hi Jens,
either after evaluation:
In[5]:=
Integrate[E^(-a*x^2), {x, -Infinity, Infinity}]
Out[5]=
If[Re[a] > 0, Sqrt[Pi]/Sqrt[a],
Integrate[E^(-a*x^2), {x, -Infinity, Infinity}]]
In[6]:=
% /. Re[a] > 0 -> True
Out[6]=
Sqrt[Pi]/Sqrt[a]
or better yet, before it:
In[30]:=
Integrate[E^(-a*x^2), {x, -Infinity, Infinity},
Assumptions -> {Re[a] > 0}]
Out[30]=
Sqrt[Pi]/Sqrt[a]
all the best,
