Is it possible to exactly derive the mode of a probability distribution if you have the characteristic function? I cannot get the pdf of the distribution because the inverse Fourier transform of the characteristic function cannot be found analytically.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Any thoughts would be appreciated!
