Useful for solving various integral equations and PDEs. Fourier transforms, Laplace transforms, Mellin transforms, Hankel transforms…

1 Fourier transform

See Fourier transforms.

2 Laplace transform

Casual interpretation of the Laplace transform: Generalized Fourier transform. Both more powerful and more difficult, although the nature of the power and the difficulties depends upon where it is to be applied.

\[{\mathcal {L}}\{f\}(s)=\operatorname {E} \!\left[e^{-sX}\right]=\mathbb {E} \!\left[e^{-sX}\right] \]

3 Mellin transform

A transform with “Scale invariance like the Fourier transform has shift invariance”. Sounds fun.

4 Hankel transform

TBD. Covered implicitly in rotational symmetries.
