TL;DR Summary
I am attempting to do a problem involving wave functions and imaginary numbers
I am attempting to be able to do this problem with the help of Mathematica and Fourier transform. My professor gave us instructions for Fourier Transformation and Inverse Fourier, but I don't believe that my output in Mathematica is correct.

You're supposed to define a function of ##k##, not ##x##, and find the inverse Fourier transform to get ##f(x)##. Also, note that ##b## is multiplied by ##k##, not ##\lvert k \rvert##.
