### The Spectrum of an exponentially decaying Light Pulse

In this problem you will learn how to apply the Fourier Transformation to a simple exponentially decaying electric field.

Physics can be seen as the try to express nature in term of mathematics.

This category intends to provide some basic mathematical tools to cope with the physics problems on the site. Remember, it's a physics site, so it might be much more leaned towards actual calculations than mathematicians might outline the topics.

The Heaviside step function is very important in physics. It often models a sudden switch-on phenomenon and is therefore present in a lot of integrals.
