    Fourier transform with | . |

    Hello,

    How do you go about finding the Fourier transform of e^{-2|t-1|}. Specifically how do you deal with the | . | part.

    You need to calculate,
    F(\omega) = \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} f(t) e^{-2\pi i t\omega} dt.
    Break the integral,
    \int_{-\infty}^{1}e^{2(t-1)} e^{-2\pi i t\omega} dt + \int_1^{\infty} e^{-2(t-1)} e^{-2\pi i t\omega} dt.
    And now compute each one seperately.
