Abstract

The classical Paley-Wiener theorem is a description of the image of Cc (IR) under Fourier transform. The Fourier transform
$$\rm{\hat f (\wedge)\ =\ \int^\infty_{-\infty}\ f(x)e^{\wedge x}\ dx}$$
is defined a priori for purely imaginary numbers ⋀, but if f has compact support \(\hat f\) will extend to an entire function on the complex plane.
