I want to prove that if $f \in C^{1}(\mathbb{R})$ is compactly supported then its Fourier transform is integrable. I was able to prove the result for $f \in C^{2}(\mathbb{R})$ and compactly supported. I used the fact that if $f \in C^{2}(\mathbb{R})$, then $\hat{f}$ is bounded by $\frac{c}{1+{|x|}^{2}}$. So it is integrable. I failed to prove it if $f \in C^{1}(\mathbb{R})$

  • $\begingroup$ This is probably false: there must exist compactly supported $C^1$-functions whose Fourier transform is not integrable. I'll look for an example. $\endgroup$ Apr 21 '11 at 6:13

  • $\begingroup$ No, but page 6 does :), thanks a lot,... I'm trying to see now if this result can be upgraded to $\mathbb{R}^{n}$ $\endgroup$

Here is a link to the paper about necessary conditions for the integrability of the Fourier transform:

http://www.heldermann-verlag.de/gmj/gmj16/gmj16043.pdf

It is stated in that paper that sufficient conditions for the integrability of the Fourier transform are given in the book

R. M. Trigub and E. S. Bellinsky, Fourier analysis and approximation of functions. Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht, 2004.

  • $\begingroup$ I think the paper is: Elijah Liflyand, Necessary Conditions for Integrability of the Fourier Transform, Georgian Mathematical Journal, Volume 16 (2009), Number 3, 553–559 $\endgroup$ Nov 20 '19 at 20:18
