Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There is the following function whose Fourier transform I cannot work out despite days of labour,

$$f(q) = \frac{e^{i\sqrt{q^2+1}a}}{\sqrt{1+q^2}}.$$ Here ##a## is a nonnegative constant. As usual, the Fourier transform is

$$F(x) = \int^{\infty}_{-\infty}dq~e^{iqx}f(q).$$ I tried to use contour integral, but the integrand has branch points in the complex plane. I could not find a proper contour which can make a de tour off the branch cuts!

Could you give me some advice?

Thank you !
