# Convolution Properties and Fourier Transform

## Homework Statement

Determine whether the assertions are true or false, explain.
(a) If (f * g)(t) = f(t), then g(t) must be an impulse, d(t).
(b) If the convolution of two functions f1(t) and f2(t) is identically zero,
(f1 * f2)(t) = 0
then either f1(t) or f2(t) is identically zero, or both are identically zero.

## Homework Equations

Fourier Transform implies that Xf1(jw)*Xf2(jw)=transform on the convolution.

## The Attempt at a Solution

a) If Xf1(jw)*Xf2(jw)=Xf1(jw) then Xf2(jw) must be equal to 1, which is the same as d(t).

Not sure about b...

Welcome to PF, Pewgs!

Your (a) looks good!

For (b) you should perhaps consider 2 transforms that multiply to zero, but are not zero themselves.
For instance a Heaviside function and its mirror.
