Abstract: There exists a continuous function $ f$ on the real line, vanishing at infinity, such that, for every measure-preserving transformation $ h$, the composition $ f \circ h$ fails to be a Fourier transform. This fact is a consequence of a theorem about measurable functions which is obtained from the theory of idempotents.
