There is the function fftpack.fftn, which calculates the n-dimensional Fourier 
Transformation. You can then use the symmetries that arise from
	sin(kx) = 1/(2i) * (exp(ikx) - exp(-ikx)).
My intuition says that probably you have to substract the Fourier coefficients 
for (+k) and (-k) and multiply with something like 1/2i. Please figure out 
the details yourself. :-)
