### Fourier transform without characters (Eigenfunctions of an operator)

Let's consider a very simple problem in quantum mechanics: We have, in $\mathbb R,$ a potential barrier of the form $$V(x) = V_0 \mathbf 1_{[-a,a]}(x),$$ where $\mathbf 1_{[-a,a]}$ denotes the ...

### Fourier Transform diagonalizes time-invariant convolution operators [closed]

I got the following paragraph from the book "A wavelet tour of signal processing" chapter one, page 2. The Fourier transform is everywhere in physics and mathematics because it diagonalizes ...

### Integration against a certain Fourier transform

I asked the following question on mathstack but didn't receive any answers. I suspect that this question has a simple answer but I haven't thought about Fourier transforms in a while so am being ...

### A question about Fourier transform of a function defined by an integral

I have the function: $$G_k(x)_=\frac{1}{(4\pi)^{k/2}\Gamma(k/2)}\int_0^\infty e^{-\pi|x|^2/\delta}e^{-\delta/4\pi}\delta^{-(n-k)/2}\,\frac{d\delta}{\delta},$$ for all $x\in\mathbb{R}^n$ and $k>0$....

### Fourier transforms exhibiting symmetries about their critical points

Upon looking at the graphs of various Fourier sine and cosine transforms (ones without Dirac deltas in their domain) I've noticed a pattern that is probably already known, but that I thought would be ...

### General Fourier inversion formula (Gil-Pelaez)

Gil-Pelaez (1951) proves the Fourier inversion formula \begin{align*} F(x) &= \frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{2\pi} \int_0^\infty \frac{e^{itx}\phi(-t)-e^{-itx}\phi(t)}{it}dt \\ &= \frac{1}{2} - \frac{...

### Failure of Strichartz estimates for the wave equation: elaboration of a counter-example

One can read in Oh - Probabilistic perspectives in nonlinear dispersive PDEs (Proposition 64, p. 60) that there exists a function $F \in L^2_tL^{1}_x (\mathbb{R}_t\times \mathbb{R}^3_x)$ which is ...

### How to use inverse Fourier transform to get the original signal

Suppose I have a signal $u(x)$ where $x\in[0,2\pi]$ and the signal has following form in Fourier space, \$\hat{u}(\kappa)=\begin{cases} \frac{1+i\tan{(\varphi_u(\kappa))}}{\sqrt{1+\tan^2{(\varphi_u(\...
