56. a) If f ∈ L1 (RN ) and fλ (x) = f (λx) for λ &gt; 0, find a relationship
between fbλ and fb.
b) If f ∈ L1 (RN ) and fh (x) = f (x − h) for h ∈ RN , find a relationship
between fbh and fb.

Plancherel formula.)
58. In this problem Jn denotes the Bessel function of the first kind and
of order n. It may defined in various ways, one of which is

Suppose that f is a radially symmetric function in L1 (R2 ), i.e. f (x) =
f (r) where r = |x|. Show that

It follows in particular that fˆ is also radially symmetric. Using the known
d
(zJ1 (z)) = zJ0 (z) compute the Fourier transform of χB(0,R) the
identity dz
indicator function of the ball B(0, R) in R2 . (See problem 11.16 in text
for the R3 case.)
59. For α ∈ R let fα (x) = cos αx.
a) Find the Fourier transform fbα .
b) Find limα→0 fbα and limα→∞ fbα in the sense of distributions.
