Inverse Fourier Tranform of Transmission Lines Wave Equation

  1. Feb 26, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    From the derivation of v(x,t) and i(x,t) I am stuck on how the inverse Fourier transform of e^(-jwx/u) was calculated. I am trying to understand how the PDE was fully solved here: http://fourier.eng.hmc.edu/e84/lectures/transmission_line/node1.html

    2. Relevant equations
    Not sure what rule to implement here, working using laplace transforms (s = jw) to perform Fourier transformations to avoid integration.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Your notation and writing are a mess. You have f as a function of x in some places, of t in other places, and x and t in yet other places. Why don't you start by clearly defining what the problem is and writing it out carefully.
