# FourierTransform

FourierTransform[expr, t, ]
gives the symbolic Fourier transform of expr.

FourierTransform[expr, {t1, t2, ...}, {1, 2, ...}]
gives the multidimensional Fourier transform of expr.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• The Fourier transform of a function is by default defined to be .
• Other definitions are used in some scientific and technical fields.
• Different choices of definitions can be specified using the option FourierParameters.
• With the setting FourierParameters->{a, b} the Fourier transform computed by FourierTransform is .
• Some common choices for are (default; modern physics), (pure mathematics; systems engineering), (classical physics), and {0, -2Pi} (signal processing).
• The following options can be given:
•  Assumptions \$Assumptions assumptions to make about parameters FourierParameters {0,1} parameters to define the Fourier transform GenerateConditions False whether to generate answers that involve conditions on parameters
• FourierTransform[expr, t, ] yields an expression depending on the continuous variable that represents the symbolic Fourier transform of expr with respect to the continuous variable t. Fourier[list] takes a finite list of numbers as input, and yields as output a list representing the discrete Fourier transform of the input.
• In TraditionalForm, FourierTransform is output using . »
