My math professor doesn't include the correcting (normalizing factor) neither in the Fourier transform nor in the inverse Fourier! He says that it's optional.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It is weird because I have seen it used in all the text books! Is it a big deal?

He defines the Fourier transform as:-

And inverse as:-
