In all problems the Mathematica output is part of your grade and must be turned in with your paper-and-pencil calculations.

For the Mathematica calculations, such as in the Integrate, Simplify, FullSimplify commands, you need to specify that the constants such as a, σ, λ, etc., are real numbers greater than zero or else it will assume they are complex numbers and produce crazy looking answers. To do this read the "tutorial/UsingAssumptions" which you will find in the Mathematica Help / Documentation Center.
