	Sorry..I meant to say that I expected (-I w)
FourierTransform[f[x,t],t,w] not (-I w)^2,etc.. for the f[x,t] example...jb

	If you type in FourierTransform[ D[ f [t] ,t ],t,w]  you get back  -
I w FourierTransform[ f[t], t, w ], however if you type in

	FourierTransform[ D[ f[x,t],t], t, w]    you get back
FourierTransform[ f ^(0,1)[x,t], t, w]  whereas I expected (-I w)^2
FourierTransform[f[x,t], t, w]. 

	  I tried the same ideas with Laplace Transform  but there I  got
back what I expected,namely: 

	-f[0] + s LaplaceTransform[f[t],t,s]


	-f[x,0] + s LaplaceTransform[ f[x,t],t,s]

	Why  the differences?

	thanks...Jerry Blimbaum  NSWC  Panama City, Fl
