(b) Determine the constant C . V. Eigenfunction Expansions. Expect at least one problem similar to the problems of homeworks 9 and 10. Many of you could have the joy of doing those exercises for the first time! Do not deprive yourselves of that joy. VI. Fourier transforms. Homeworks 11 and 12 are the relevant ones. Having had only one disastrous quiz and no exam on this topic, expect some questions that will carry weight in the exam. I’ll make a copy of tables A2, A3, A4 of the textbook available, so there is no need to have any of that on your “cheat sheet.” Here are some additional, maybe more conceptual exercises. 1. By differentiating both sides of the equation ˆ f ( ω ) = 1 2 π −∞ e ixω f ( x ) dx, establish that F [ xf ( x )]( ω ) = - i d ˆ f ( ω ), (assuming convergence of the improper integrals). Use this and formula 14 in A2 to find the Fourier transform of f ( x ) = xe −| x | . 2. Show that if y is a real constant, then F [ e ixy f ( x )]( ω ) = ˆ f ( ω + y ) . 3. Show that if y is a real constant, then F [ f ( x + y )]( ω ) = e iωy ˆ f ( ω ) . 4. Compute the Fourier transform of f ( x ) = x ( x - 2) 2 + 4 . (Use Table A2!) 5. Let f ( x ) be defined for -∞ < x < and be even. Show that ˆ f ( ω ) = F C [ f ]( ω ) for ω > 0 .

4 6. Let f ( x ) be defined for -∞ < x < and be odd. Show that ˆ f ( ω ) = i F S [ f ]( ω ) for ω > 0 . 7. A function f is defined by f ( x ) = −∞ e y 2 ( x - y ) 2 + 9 dy. Compute ˆ f ( ω ). Use Table A2, of course. VII. And let’s not forget D’Alembert’s formula!! Expect Jean le Rond to make a cameo appearance.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
