Hi All! I've been looking at this Fourier Transform integral and I've realised that I'm not sure how to integrate the exponential term to infinity. I would expect the result to be infinity but that wouldn't give me a very useful function. So I've taken it to be zero but I have no idea if you can do this...
Thanks!!!

With your current limits (with ##-\infty##) what you have done is wrong. The exponential will blow up at negative times. The integral will not converege.

Thanks, I realise my mistake now. The limits should be zero to infinity as negative time is not possible
