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

I am trying to make some progress in my understanding of

Schrodinger's equation.I have been trying to teach myself about

Fourier transforms in the hope that this will help me understand the

derivation of Schrodinger's equation.

My question has to do with slide number 16 from a presentation which can be found at :

http://www.physics.gatech.edu/gcuo/UltrafastOptics/3803/OpticsI14FourierTransformI.ppt [Broken]

My question is : I know about integrating the product of two

functions [see Section 6.1 at

http://mathews.ecs.fullerton.edu/c2002/ca0601.html] [Broken] but i don't see

how you do end up with an expression containing "e" [i.e. the "exp"

factor] by performing integrations on the fourier coefficients above

it which contain sine and cosine functions ?

Your help gratefully appreciated.

Sincerely
