How to integrate e^(x^2)

According to Dr Brian Osgood, in his notes for Standford course EE 261 (The Fourier Transform and Its Applications), this method is due to Leonard Euler. The course is available free online and I recommend it. Dr Osgood is actually a mathematician, not an EE, and the course is quite mathematically oriented, although it includes some very interesting nonmath applications as well (image processing, tomography, even a proof of an interesting randomwalk result using FT). You can Google "Standford EE 261".
