My problem:

I have the function
f(r) = \int exp(-r * x) dx

I want to specify r as a linear function depending on x, so
r(x) = ax + b

Now I want in some ways to see what happens to the function "f" if I
change r(x), e.g.
f(r2) with
r2(t) = r(t) + c
or
r2(t) = r(t) + (a-c)(x-n)

What I hope to see is some form of closed form expression so I can see
how sensitive the function is for changing in some parameters.

Any tips how to start?

Integrating over what interval? I'll assume it's the whole real line.

If a > 0,
int_{-infty}^infty exp(-a x^2 - b x) dx = sqrt(pi/a) exp(b^2/(4 a))
