GenerateConditions

GenerateConditions
is an option for Integrate that specifies whether explicit conditions on parameters should be generated in the results of definite integrals.
  • The default setting is GenerateConditions->Automatic, which is equivalent to a setting of True for one-dimensional integrals.
Obtain conditions for validity of the result in FourierTransform:
In[1]:=

Out[1]=
GenerateConditions is set to False by default in this case:
In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=
 
The result from Integrate contains conditions for validity:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
Use GenerateConditions->False to obtain result valid for a limited range of a:
In[2]:=
