Figure 7.3.4:
${|\mathcal{F}\left(x\right)|}^{2}$
,
$-8\le x\le 8$

Fresnel (
1818
)
introduced the integral
$\mathcal{F}\left(x\right)$
in his study of the interference pattern at the edge of a shadow. He observed that the intensity distribution is given by
${\left|\mathcal{F}\left(x\right)\right|}^{2}$
.
