Physics (PHZ) 3113 Mathematical Physics Florida Atlantic University Fall, 2010 Problem Set IV Due: Thursday, 23 September 2010 1. (Problems 7.11.6 and 8, pp. 377–378) Use Parseval’s theorem and the results of the problems indicated to sum the following series: a. X n 1 1 n 4 (see Problem 7.9.9). b. X n 1 n odd 1 n 4 (see Problem 7.9.10). 2. (Problems 7.12.3 and 7, p. 384) Find the exponential Fourier transform of f (a) ( x ) := - 1 - π < x < 0 1 0 < x < π 0 | x | > π and f (b) ( x ) := ( | x | | x | < 1 0 | x | > 1 . Use these results to write each f ( x ) as a Fourier integral. (That is, write each as a superposition

Find the exponential Fourier transform of f ( x ) := e-| x | and write the inverse transform to show that Z ∞ cos αx α 2 + 1 d α = π 2 e-| x | . b. Find the Fourier transform of 1 / (1 + x 2 ). Hint : Interchange x and α in the result of the first part. c. Verify Parseval’s theorem for the Fourier transform computed in part (a)....
