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: enter image description here

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).
<to be read again> 

I don't know what is wrong in it, can someone help me with this?

  • Use \times instead of *, or forego it altogether, since multiplication will be assumed within the context.

use \lbrace and \rbrace instead of { and }.
