# math equation, problem with brackets

Hi i have a problem with "{}" brackets in my equation.

$$y= \alpha ^{- \int F_1(x)\,dx} \left { \ C- \int_{- \infty}^{\infty} F_2 (x) * \beta^{F_1 (x)dx} dx \right }$$


I need this to looks like that:

When i write this with brackets "[]" in code it works but i need this "{}" badly

instead of this i have an error :

Missing delimiter (. inserted).

• Use \times instead of *, or forego it altogether, since multiplication will be assumed within the context. – Werner Nov 2 '17 at 15:23
use \lbrace and \rbrace instead of { and }.
• or \{ and \} – David Carlisle Nov 2 '17 at 15:16
