A numerical method for calculation of the relaxation time distribution function based on the discrete Fourier transform of the dispersion part of the complex dielectric permittivity is developed. The time relaxation distribution function is found for water; its dispersion of relaxation times is narrow. This is explained by the presence of distorted hydrogen bonds (the Pople model).
