Re: Bug in FourierTransform?


Hi,

FourierTransform[] does not split sums into 
single terms. Because FourierTransform[a+b,_,_]
may extist but FourierTransform[a,_,_]+FourierTransform[b,_,_]
may be not existing or may be divergent.

I assume that Mathematica try to integrate the full
expression and this take a very long time.

Regards
  Jens
