Gill and Myers proved that every separable Banach space, denoted $\mathcal{B}$, has an isomorphic, isometric embedding in $\mathbb{R}^{\infty}=\mathbb{R}\times\mathbb{R}\times\cdots$ . They used this result and a method due to Yamasaki to construct a sigma-finite Lebesgue measure $\lambda_{\mathcal{B}}$ for $\mathcal{B}$\ and defined the associated integral $\int_{\mathcal{B}}\cdot d\lambda_{\mathcal{B}}$ in a way that equals a limit of finite-dimensional Lebesgue integrals.

The objective of this talk is to develop a constructive definition of the Fourier transform on $L^1[\mathcal{B}]$. Our approach is constructive in the sense that this Fourier transform is defined as an integral on $\mathcal{B}$, which, by the aforementioned definition, equals a limit of Lebesgue integrals on Euclidean space as the dimension $n\to\infty$. Because this transform has all of the familiar properties, we will use these to derive the solution to the diffuse equation on $\mathcal{B}$.
