    Inverse Fourier transform

    Hi there. I have some trouble with this. I have to find the inverse fourier transform for: \frac{e^{i 6\omega}}{\omega}
    So I'm using a table. I have that:
    F(sg(t))=\frac{2}{i \omega} and F(\delta(t-t_0))=e^{-i \omega t_0}

    Then F^{-1}(e^{i6\omega})=\delta(t+6) and F^{-1}\left (\frac{1}{\omega}\right )=F^{-1}\left ( \frac{i}{2}\frac{2}{i \omega}\right )=\frac{i}{2}sg(t)

    Finally using the properties for convolutions:
    F^{-1}\left ( \frac{e^{i 6\omega}}{\omega}\right )=F^{-1}\left ( e^{i 6\omega}\right ) * F^{-1}\left ( \frac{1}{\omega}\right )=2\pi\left[ \delta (t+6)*\frac{i}{2}sg(t)\right] where (*) represents the convolution.

    Well, everything fine till there, but when I tried to corroborate my result with mathematica I get:


    I don't know whats wrong.

    Re: Inverse Fourier transform

    You're output from Mathematica didn't display. Can you re-post it. In any event, I think there's an easier way for this: the Fourier transform of f(t-t_0) is F(\omega)e^{-i\omega t_0}. Hence the inverse of \frac{e^{6i\omega}}{\omega} is \frac{i}{2}\text{sgn}(t+6).
