Problem: Show that

where [ ]* indicates complex conjugate.


This problem is related to the Fourier transform of a function or distribution.
First of all, we need to define the Fourier transform, since there are several ways to define this transform, although the properties are the same.
According to the statement to be proved, the Fourier transform of a function (x) will be defined as:
( 1)
Its inverse is
