Solution 1 a) Write, F { f ( x a ) } = Z ∞∞ f ( x a ) e ikx dx = e ika Z ∞∞ f ( x a ) e ik ( x a ) dx. (1) Now make the substitution u = x a . Then (1) becomes, e ika Z ∞∞ f ( u ) e iku du = e ika F ( k ) . So, F { f ( x a ) } = e ika F ( k ) . b) This problem turned out to be harder than intended because the stated form of the shifting theorem requires some additional assumptions to be valid. Nonetheless, we proceed and state the assumptions where necessary. At the end, we mention a form of the shifting theorem that is easier to prove. Note that, F 1 { F ( k ib ) } = 1 2 π Z ∞∞ F ( k ib ) e ikx dk = e ix ( ib ) 2 π Z ∞ ib∞ ib F ( κ ) e ixκ dκ, where κ = k ib . Since we have moved the integration off the real axis, we need to investigate whether this integral converges. A sufficient condition for it to converge is that we assume F ( k ) is analytic on and in the box b < Im( k ) < 0 and∞ < Re( k ) < ∞ . Then we consider a contour that goes from∞ to ∞ along the real axis, goes from ∞ to∞ at ib , and connects at the ends. Since we have assumed F ( k ) is analytic in that region, the integral around the contour is zero. Further, the RiemannLebesgue lemma tells us that if f ( x ) is absolutely integrable, i.e. R ∞∞  f ( x )  dx < ∞ , then lim k →±∞ F ( k ) = 0. * Thus, by the MLinequality with L = b , the contribution from the ends at infinity vanishes. Thus, Z ∞∞ F ( k ) e ixk dk = Z ∞ ib∞ ib F ( k ) e ixk dk = Z ∞∞ F ( ω ib ) e i ( ω ib ) x dω = e bx Z ∞∞ F ( ω ib ) e iωx dω, where we have made the substitution, ω = k + ib . Notice that the first term is 2 πf ( x ), and the last term is 2 πe bx F 1 { F ( ω ib ) } . Thus, F 1 { F ( k ib ) } = e bx f ( x ) . (2) * H. Weinberger.
