r^2 = x^2 + y^2
tan t = y/x
dx dy = J dr dt = r dr dt
J the Jocbian of the transformation
t theta the angle

integeral integral re^(-r^2) dr dt
= pi/2 * (-1/2)(-1)

Yesterday I was playing with erf(x), the error function after swimming
with my pals
Yet, I've got a problem in turning the double integral
\int{ \int{ e^{-x^2 - y^2} dx } dy } (restricted in the first
into polar coordinates
ANyone would like to help me with it?
Thanks
frank.
