## Main Question or Discussion Point

What conditions are there that allow to change the order of iterated integrals (improper ones).

For example, the following doesn't seem to work:

[tex]\int_{0}^\infty\left(\int_{0}^\infty f(t) \cos(\alpha t) dt\right)\cos(\alpha x)d\alpha = \int_{0}^\infty f(t)\left(\int_{0}^\infty \cos(\alpha t) \cos(\alpha x) d\alpha\right)dt [/tex]

The integral in parentheses on the RHS obviously fails to converge.

For example, the following doesn't seem to work:

[tex]\int_{0}^\infty\left(\int_{0}^\infty f(t) \cos(\alpha t) dt\right)\cos(\alpha x)d\alpha = \int_{0}^\infty f(t)\left(\int_{0}^\infty \cos(\alpha t) \cos(\alpha x) d\alpha\right)dt [/tex]
