Integral transform

In mathematics, an integral transform is any transform T of the following form:

(Tf)(u)=\int _{{t_{1}}}^{{t_{2}}}f(t)\,K(t,u)\,dt.

The input of this transform is a function f, and the output is another function Tf.

There are several useful integral transforms. Each transform corresponds to a different choice of the function K, which is called the kernel of the transform.

Although the properties of integral transforms vary widely, they have some properties in common. For example, every integral transform is a linear operator, since the integral is a linear operator, and in fact if the kernel is allowed to be a generalized function then all linear operators are integral transforms (a properly formulated version of this statement is the Schwartz kernel theorem).
