Thursday, April 18, 2008 NAME: This exam consists of 3 problems, with points as 1abeﬂed. Please write each answer Clearly
and legibly. Don’t forget to show all of your work! fill M ﬂ (3 1. (32 pts) For the function h(33) = cc + 1 with a: E (—1,1), ﬁnd the ﬁrst two non—zero
terms in the full Fourier series or 2. (32 pts) Consider the following general statement of Fourier decomposition (the rep—
resentation of a function as an inﬁnite sum of orthogonal eigenfunctions X j) fm=2aam (a) Using an inner product (f, g) but Without Specifying its particular form, derive
an abstract expression for Ag; in terms of f and the Xj. (b) By taking the inner product of f with itself, derive the relation with its Fourier
coefﬁcients known as Parseval’s identity. (c) NOW take the inner product of f with another function 9(a"), and derive another
relation involving the Fourier coefﬁcients of both functions. 222% <><,»¢> an //»¢//é 55’. “2 04:7/ ﬁ/ Lyn/8'15 “SQ L95 4€f>:4§4%2%~6> [2M Oweaé/A/V/W/Q 3. (36 pts} Find the spatial eigenfunctions and eigenvalues, and the general series solution
