Fourier transform of a lorentzian function

  1. Aug 17, 2012 #1
    hi

    I know the Fourier transform of a lorentzian function is a lorentzian but i was wondering if the fourier transform of the second derivation of a lorentzian function is also a second derivative of a lorentzian function

    Thanks

    The Fourier transform of a Lorentzian isn't a Lorentzian (its a decaying oscillation)

    The Fourier transform of a Gaussian is a Gaussian, which is I guess what you mean?

    Do you know any theorems about the Fourier transform of a derivative to help answer your other question?
