InverseFourierTransform

InverseFourierTransform
gives the symbolic inverse Fourier transform of expr.
InverseFourierTransform
gives the multidimensional inverse Fourier transform of expr.
  • The inverse Fourier transform of a function is by default defined as .
  • Other definitions are used in some scientific and technical fields.
  • Different choices of definitions can be specified using the option FourierParameters.
  • Some common choices for are (default; modern physics), (pure mathematics; systems engineering), (classical physics), and {0, -2Pi} (signal processing).
  • InverseFourierTransform yields an expression depending on the continuous variable t that represents the symbolic inverse Fourier transform of expr with respect to the continuous variable . InverseFourier[list] takes a finite list of numbers as input, and yields as output a list representing the discrete inverse Fourier transform of the input.
