Abstract: Extending the Paley-Wiener theorem to locally compact Abelian groups involves both finding a suitable Laplace transform and a suitable analogue for analytic functions. The Laplace transform is defined in terms of complex characters, and differentiability is defined with use of one-parameter subgroups. The resulting theorem is much as conjectured by Mackey [7],($ ^{1}$) the major differences being that the theorem is very much an $ {L^2}$ theorem and that the problem exhibits a surprising finite dimensional nature.
