# 2D Fourier Transform of a "Box"

Cuthbert Nyack

The 2D function in the x-y plane above has a 2D Fourier transform
in the u-v plane given below.
The 2D transform in the uv plane is illustrated by the applet below.
When th = 0, the view is along the u axis. Both u and v axes go from -4 to +4.

The pattern is also tht which would be observed in rectangular slit
diffraction in optics.
