Homework Help: Fourier transform and convolution, dirac function

  1. Jan 30, 2010 #1
    Hi everyone,
    I uploaded a solution about fourier transform. At the solution of this problem, it states that make convolution. But i tried to do convolution but my result is not same with this result. When you do the convolution with 2.10 and 2.11, is the result 2.13 correct ? How is it done ? :S I am so confused.

    i really dont understand the basis of this problem

    but from what you have posted if E2.9 to E2.12 is the way it is then E2.13 should be right

    did you do the convolution of 2.10 with 2.11?

    I try to do the convolution. But i think at E2.13 there shouldn't be 1/4. Maybe i do something wrong.
    I said E2.10 x(f)
    Then E2.11 y(f)

    x(f)*y(f)=int(x(z).y(f-z)dz) right ? this is the convolution
    so i put E2.11 into the integral. And i subsitute f to f-z the formula becomes

    then f-50-z=0 df=dz
    i computed the integral than put z into these formula. But 1/4 not coming from there. Maybe i did something wrong

    oops i dont get that 1/4 either, may be it is some typo in that sheet
