Also, you you only start by taking the Fourier transform if you're interested in the probability density of a certain value of the

[tex]P(x)=\int\psi (x)^*\psi (x) dx[/tex]

which does not involve a Fourier Transform.

Instead, the Fourier transform of a wave function will give the wave function in momentum space (call it [itex]\phi[/itex]). Again, as Fredrick mentioned, we can use this to find the probability density for the momentum of the particle:

[tex]P(p)=\int\phi (p)^*\phi (p) dp[/tex]
