there hermite polynomials to be dervived from the original recursive formulas, and integrated both ways to infinity
and many other things i can't remember

the test in on the wire
i hope i pass

i am proud b/c i learnt so much, andrew holding my hand all the way.

now to cram for the next one. ai ya!
