If we don't want to use complex analysis we can proceed in 'elementary' way first remembering that... (1) ... and that conducts to the identity... (2) ... so that is... (3) Kind regards

How did you get this from the above one.I am confused..
I got this answer,tell me where I am wrong

this just comes from the fact that given and being an even integrable function on then so there's no much here, the justification comes from dealing with improper integrals.
