On a Class of Definite Integrals


  • Saveetha Engineering College, Department of Mathematics, Chennai, 600 106, India


We derive some elementary results from Laplace integral formula. Using this, we show evaluation of a class of definite integrals in the combinations of powers, exponentials with standard functions, either by recursively or directly. Further, we derive some identities on parabolic cylinder function, modified Bessel function of the second kind, Meijer's G-function, etc.
