I am having difficulty trying to perform the following differentiation with Mathematica.

f(x)=a*exp(-ibt)*exp[-(bmx^2/h)], where a, b, m, and h are constants and t and x are variables.

How do I take the first derivative of this function with respect to t and have Mathematica return back a symbolic result. Does the same algorithm hold true for a second derivative?

Many thanks!
