Since u satsifies Laplace’s equation in the disk, the separation of variables method and the fact that u is 2π-periodic in θ imply that u is given by the series (4), where the coefficients are to be determined from the Neumann boundary condition. From ∞ rn u(r, θ) = a0 + an cos nθ + bn sin nθ , a n=1 it follows that ∞ ur (r, θ) = n n=1 rn−1 an an cos nθ + bn sin nθ . Using the boundary condition ur (a, θ) = f (θ), we obtain ∞ f (θ ) = n an cos nθ + bn sin nθ . a n=1 In this Fourier series expansion, the n = 0 term must be 0. But the n = 0 term is given by 2π 1 f (θ) dθ, 2π 0 thus the compatibility condition 2π f (θ) dθ = 0 0 must hold. Once this condition is satsified, we determine the coefficients an and bn by using the Euler formulas, as follows: n 1 an = a π 2π f (θ) cos nθ dθ 0 ...
