In this paper we study the fractional Fourier transformation on the space S of Schwartz test functions, study some of its properties, and establish a two sided inverse for it. Also, we establish a convolution theorem for the fractional Fourier transform. We use duality to define fractional Fourier transform of tempered distributions. We define fractional convolution of a function and a tempered distribution and fractional convolution of tempered distributions, and show continuity of the convolution operators involved.
