We know that in the Fourier transform formula ,there are mainly two terms function f(t) and complex exponential term ( function).


But I am confused that what should i call Fourier transform formula as a correlation or convolution formula? So can anybody help regarding it?

You need to describe what you are looking for. Fourier transform, convolution, and correlation are all different concepts.

There is a connection between the Fourier transforms and convolutions - the Fourier transform of a product of two functions is the convolution of the individual transforms, and vice versa.
