Conditions for the *existence* of the Fourier transform are
complicated to state in general [35], but it is *sufficient*
for to be *absolutely integrable*, *i.e.*,

There is never a question of existence, of course, for Fourier
transforms of real-world signals encountered in practice. However,
*idealized* signals, such as sinusoids that go on forever in
time, do pose normalization difficulties. In practical engineering
analysis, these difficulties are resolved using Dirac's ``generalized
functions'' such as the *impulse* (also called the
*delta function*), discussed in §B.1.10.

Julius Smith's background is in electrical engineering (BS Rice 1975, PhD Stanford 1983). He is presently Professor of Music and (by courtesy) of Electrical Engineering at Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), teaching courses and pursuing research related to signal processing applied to music and audio systems.
