But I have already stated quite clearly that the BW, i.e. its standard
deviation, or rms, frequency width is zero for a pure sinewave, which is
why its representation in the time domain is infinite, i.e. it must
exist for ever. This is not talking pass someone. Its simple being
ignored, as you apparently have as well!
