Let L 2 ([- π,π ]) denote the real L 2 functions f : [- π,π ] → R , equipped with the inner product ( f,g ) = 1 π R π- π fg. (i) Prove that 1 √ 2 , cos( x ) , sin( x ) , cos(2 x ) , sin(2 x ) ,..., cos( nx ) , sin( nx ) ,... is a complete orthonormal sequence for L 2 ([- π,π ]) , and show that, with respect to this orthonormal sequence, the Fourier series of a function f ∈ L 2 ([- π,π ]) can be written a / 2 + ∑ ∞ k =1 ( a k cos( kx ) + b k sin( kx )) , where a k = ( f, cos( kx )) , k = 0 , 1 , 2 ,... and b k = ( f, sin( kx )) , k = 1 , 2 ,... . Hint: You can assume the completeness of e inx for the complex L 2 space L 2 C ([- π,π ]) . (ii) Write down Parsevals identity in this case for a given function f ∈ L 2 ([- π,π ]) . 2. Give an example of a sequence of non-negative C ∞ functions on [0 , 1] such that R [0 , 1] f k → , yet such that f k ( x ) converges to zero at no point of [0 , 1] ....
