# Integration with Exponentials

I've tried integration by parts as well as substitution using $u=e^{t}$ but nothing seems to work.

$$\int\left(1-e^{-t}\right) \cdot \exp({e^{t}}) dt$$

• Hint: substitute $u=e^t-t$ Commented Sep 17, 2016 at 14:32
• It can be integrated, just as j___d commented. Commented Sep 17, 2016 at 14:36
• @Dr.SonnhardGraubner Sometimes I wonder HOW, and really HOW, you can have so many reputations. Your comments are always stupid, and your answers are always useless. Commented Sep 17, 2016 at 14:40
• i have misreaded the question here was it $$\int(1-e^t)e^{e^t}dt$$ Commented Sep 17, 2016 at 14:48

Factoring, we get: $$I:= \int \left(1-e^{-t}\right)e^{e^t}\,\mathrm d t = \int \left(e^t-1\right)e^{e^t-t}\,\mathrm d t$$ Now substitute $u=e^t-t$ and thus $\dfrac{\mathrm d u}{\mathrm d t}=e^t-1$ to get $$I=\int e^u\,\mathrm d u=e^u+C=\boxed{e^{e^t-t}+C}$$
Hint: $1-e^{-t}=f'(t)+g'(t)f(t)$ with $g(t)=e^t, f(t)=e^{-t}$. see for instance
