Change of integral variable

  1. Aug 11, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I want to change integral variable to jx it means (w=jx)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    but as you see the bounds of integral are different from the book text , what is my mistake?

    hat about the part that says: "by using the Cauchy theorem and showing that..."?

    dear Simon
    I didn't understand how can I use the Cauchy tip to solve this inconsistency?

    It's a step you seemto have left out though.
    I'll agree it looks like there's a minus sign missing. Maybe there's a typo? I can't actually read the image properly.

    It allows you to perform the integral from [itex]\omega = -i\infty[/itex] to [itex]\omega = +i\infty[/itex], which on setting [itex]\omega = ix[/itex] becomes [itex]x = -\infty[/itex] to [itex]x = \infty[/itex].
