```Dear All Mathgroup Fellows!

I dont understand the behavoir of Mathematica integrating
exponential functions. I try to integrate the same functions in
different forms. The integrands are

Power[E, Plus[Times[-1, Power[a, 2], Power[c, -2]], Times[-1, Power
[d, -2], \
Power[Plus[b, Times[-1, x]], 2]]]]

or

Power[E, Plus[Times[-1, Power[a, 2], Power[c, -2]], Times[-1, Power
[b, 2], \
Power[d, -2]], Times[2, b, Power[d, -1], x], Times[-1, Power[d, -2],
Power[x, \
2]]]]

which are the same, but the results will differ. Indeed calculating
definit integral in a -Infinity to Infinity domain, assuming that all
variables are larger than 0, the result will be completly different!

1'st case the result will be:

Times[d, Power[E, Times[-1, Power[a, 2], Power[c, -2]]], Power[Pi, \
Rational[1, 2]]]

while in the 2'nd case

Times[d, Power[E, Plus[Power[b, 2], Times[-1, Power[a, 2], Power[c,
-2]], \
Times[-1, Power[b, 2], Power[d, -2]]]], Power[Pi, Rational[1, 2]]]

As You can see the 1'st result is completly independent of b! I dont
understand. How can it be fixed?

Cheers,
Zsolt Regaly
