I am trying to do the InverseFourierTransform on an even and real
because of the real an even properties of the function the IFT should
produce a real and even result.
but Mathematica 188.8.131.52 gives a even and pure imaginary (erroneous) result:
In:= 2 Sqrt[2/Pi] Exp[(w/2)^2] Sin[w]/w;
InverseFourierTransform[%, w, x]
Out= -I (Erfi[1 - x] + Erfi[1 + x])
trying to FT the (erroneous) result lets Mathematica hang endless in the
calculation (until aborted).
In:= FourierTransform[%, x, w]
Any hints, is this a bug, am I missing something ?
