As the title, I want to know details of the following integrations(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

\int |x|^a * exp[i*k*x] * dx = k^{-1-a} * Gamma[1+a] * sin[a*pi/2] -------(1)

by variable changes, k*x -> z, it's easy to get the factor k^{-1-a}, i.e.

l.h.s -> (\int z^a * exp[i*z] * dz) / k^{1+a} -------------------------------------(2)

but the remaining integration seems very difficult.

We know,

\int z^a * exp[-z] * dz \propto Gamma[1+a] --------------------------------------(3)

But, how to do integrations in eq(2) whose exponential argument is

imaginary instead negative?
