Unformatted text preview: Math 445 - Solutions to selected problems from HW 1 Exercise 13, page 486. We need to find the Fourier series of the 2 π-periodic function f ( x ) defined by f ( x ) = 1 if- π 2 < x < π 2 , and f ( x ) = 0 if- π ≤ x ≤ - π 2 or π 2 ≤ x ≤ π . Solution Note that f ( x ) is even ! a = 1 2 π R π- π f ( x ) dx = 1 2 π R π 2- π 2 1 dx = 1 2 π π = 1 2 . a n = 1 π R- π π f ( x ) cos( nx ) dx = 2 π R π 2 cos( nx ) dx = 1 π sin( nπ 2 ) n- sin(0) n = 2 nπ sin( nπ 2 ). b n = 0 for all n ≥ 1 because the function is even. Hence the Fourier series of f is: f ( x ) = 1 2 + 2 π cos( x )- 2 3 π cos(3 x ) + 2 5 π cos(5 x )- 2 7 π cos(7 x ) + ... Exercise 2, page 490. We need to find the Fourier series of the p = 2 L-periodic function f ( x ) defined by f ( x ) = 0 if- 2 < x < 0 and f ( x ) = 4 if 0 < x < 2. Here p = 4. Solution Since p = 4 we have L = 2. Then: a = 1 2 L R L- L f ( x ) dx = 1 4 R 2 4 dx = 1 4 8 = 2. a n = 1 L R L- L f ( x ) cos( nπx L ) dx = 1 2 R 2 4 cos( nπx 2 ) dx = 4 nπ (sin( nπ )- sin(0)) = 0. b n = 1 L R L- L f ( x ) sin( nπx L ) dx = 1 2 R 2 4 sin( nπx 2 ) dx = 4 nπ (- cos( nπ ) + cos(0)) = 4(1- (- 1) n ) nπ ....
