I'm a beginner. I would like to draw the plot of a certain function $f(n)$, n=1,2,...

Specifically, my function is

$$\int_0^\infty\left(\frac12 + \frac12\cdot\mathrm{erf}(x/\sqrt 2)\right)^n \exp(-x^2) \mathrm{d}x $$

Thanks!

You need DiscretePlot, NIntegrate, how to define a function (in terms of n), and avoiding premature evaluation with NIntegrate.

f[n_?NumericQ] := 
 NIntegrate[(1/2 + 1/2 Erf[x/Sqrt[x]])^n Exp[-x^2], {x, 0, Infinity}]

DiscretePlot[f[n], {n, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> {0, 1}]

Mathematica graphics
