In the Mathematica Book for version 3, it states in Section 3.8.3,  with
reference to Fourier Transforms, "In electrical engineering, the sign of
exponent is typically reversed, leading to a list of values which is

As the output from the Fourier Transformis symmetrical, should this be
that the values are the reciprocal?
