Hello David,

1. I could not reproduce your error messages in version 4.1 - I got a rather
steep "sugar cone" that peaked at x = 0, y = 0.8.

2. I remember that Plot[Evaluate[your function], ....] often worked in
version 3.0.

3. Workaround: Make a Table[your function, ....] = list01 and use

4. Upgrading to release 4.1 is worth its money.

Best regards,

Betreff: [mg35081] FourierTransform problem


I am using Mathematica for Students 3.0.1 with Windows 98.  When I execute
the following code, I get the error messages below:


Clear[fx, fw, a]



fw[w_]:=InverseFourierTransform[fx[x], x, w]

Plot[fw[w], {w, -5*a,5*a}]

Plot::plnr : fw[w] is not a machine-size real number at w = -5..
Plot::plnr : fw[w] is not a machine-size real number at w = -4.59433..
Plot::plnr : fw[w] is not a machine-size real number at w = -4.15191..
General:: stop : Further output of Plot::plnr will be suppressed during this

Does anyone know where I might obtain a corrected FourierTransform.m package
for Mathematica 3.0.1?  My copy is dated 7/21/97.  I contacted Wolfram about
this matter.  However, they told me they no longer support version 3.0.  I
appreciate any help you may provide.
