You provided no information at all, made no effort at all and it might be just me, but what you have written looks rather rude to me... –  tomasz Nov 21 '12 at 16:37
    
It is just you there was no rudeness intended at all. It was self explanatory. If you'd really like I could add the definition of a inner product in L2 space, but anyone that could answer the question would likely know it anyway. Well I would if I could find how to do LaTeX here. –  Brenton Horne Nov 21 '12 at 16:57

If you know how to do the integration, integrate it and check if the answer is finite. Otherwise, you have a bunch of techniques including comparison with known integrals. It is impossible to give a general procedure.
