The only problem with the first one is the variable name T_0 -- this form is
not permitted in its position. Instead do this:

Y=Integrate[Exp[-T^2/(2T0^2)]Exp[iwT], {T, -Infinity,Infinity}]

This will produce a meaningful result AS POSTED (see below).

There is no problem with the second AS POSTED:

Z = Integrate[Y Exp[beta2*w^2*z-iwT],{w,-Infinity,Infinity}]

Now, have you read the help files of acquired a Mathematica book? I ask
because your input "iwT" is almost certainly three variables, not one, and
if so, you must separate them with spaces.

With Mathematica, as with most things, you need to learn how to use it, then
use it.

Also, it is important to say which version of Mathematica you have.
