Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Did anyone know how to do the Fourier transform of the hyperbolic

secant? I know the answer; it's given in the text (I'm reading

Ablowitz, Fokas, Complex Variables), it's another hyperbolic secant,

but I want to know how to do it. My dilemma is:

a) what contour to use? I'm having difficulty showing that the

contour integration goes to zero on the semicircle as the radius R

goes to infinity, particularly in the theta, angle, dependence in the

bottom, denominator, for e^z + e^{-z}

b) There are an infinite number of singularities along the imaginary

axis. Do I sum them up?

Thank you for your time my friend, I wanted to throw this out there. -vy
