```In   =   md[t] = Integrate[Exp[t u^(1/2 ) - u/2], {u, 0, \[Infinity]}]
Out =  If[Re(t)<0,Sqrt[2 \[Pi]] E^(t^2/2) t
(erf(t/Sqrt)+1)+2,Integrate[E^(t
Sqrt[u]-u/2),{u,0,\[Infinity]},Assumptions->Re(t)>=0]]
However,
In =    md[t] - Integrate[Exp[t u^(1/2 ) - u/2], {u, 0, \[Infinity]},
Assumptions -> Re[t] < 0]
Out = Sqrt[2 \[Pi]] E^(t^2/2) t (erf(t/Sqrt)+1)+2
In =    md[t] - Integrate[Exp[t u^(1/2 ) - u/2], {u, 0, \[Infinity]},
Assumptions -> Re[t] > 0]
Out = Sqrt[2 \[Pi]] E^(t^2/2) t (erf(t/Sqrt)+1)+2

Why doesn't yellow output contain the same analytical expression  for both
the assumptions (or just one analytical expression)?
I thought that the original expression is returned only when the analytical
result does not exist. What am I missing?
Thanks. Michael.
