MATH 342-010 Differential Equations with Linear Algebra, November 29, 2009 Fourier Series The Fourier series for the function f(x)=(x −L) 2 (x + L) 2 is given by f(x)= 8L 4 /15 48L 4 4 1 𝑛 = 𝑛 =1 n cos(nπx/L) Note that f(x)is smooth in its domain. Above are plotted the function f (thickest line), as well as the Fourier series taking the first one, two, and three terms in the sum

Unformatted text preview: terms of the series as well as f(x) vs x for for L = 1 Remarks 1. Note that with each increasing term, the series becomes a better approximation. 2. If we take the frst N terms of the series, the absolute value of the (N +1) st term is a rough estimate of the error. Note this term is always smaller than 48L 4 /(N+1) 4 π 4 which decays very rapidly as N gets large....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
