Math 415 Quiz 7B Find the Fourier series for f ( x ) = - x, - π x < π ; f ( x + 2) = f ( x ) . What function does it actually converge to? As the function is odd, we know that a k = 0 for k = 0, 1, 2, . . . So we just have to calculate b k : b k = 1 π Z π - π - x sin kxdx = - 2 π Z π 0 x sin kxdx = 2( - 1) k k . And so the Fourier series for f is X k =1 2( - 1) k k sin kx. By the Fourier convergence theorem it converges to ˜ f = - x if - π < x < π 0 for
