Re: Replace certain variable


Although I suspect there may be even cleaner ways to do it, you could
use a replacement rule such as

F[w]*Exp[I*w*t]/.{Exp[g:(restOfExponent__*w)]->Exp[restOfExponent*(x
+s*a)]}

This rule works for any sequence of multiplications in the exponent,
so long as w is somewhere and there actually IS a multiplication, i.e.
it doesn't work for w alone. To remedy that situtation, you could also
include a specific replacement for Exp[w],

Exp[w]->Exp[x*s+a]

This being said, I'd guess that there's a way that would get both
cases at once.
