Title: Calculation of some integrals and Gamma-identities

Abstract: I will consider a class of integrals involving exponentials of rational functions. I will show that some of these integrals can be computed explicitly in terms of elementary functions. The cases when such explicit calculation is possible follow the pattern implied by the identities satisfied by the Gamma-function.
