Gaussian Integral

This involves:

1. choosing an appropriate coordinate system to describe the given volume V or surface S;

2. finding the limits on the integrals in this system in terms of the variables of integration chosen; and

3. expressing the integrand and volume element dV or surface element dS in terms of the differentials of the chosen variables.
