1. Fix k 1, and suppose g (t) is real-valued and k -times dierentiable on some neighborhood of the
origin in R (we specically do not require that g (k) is continuous).

we know R is a eld.

Fourier series can be obtained for any function defined on a finite range, as in the S-L section above. In practice they provide a way to do various calculations with, and to analyse the behaviour of, functions which are periodic, i.e. repeat the same val

Half range series; odd and even functions
We recall f (x) is odd f (x) = -f (-x) for all x. f (x) is even f (x) = f (-x) for all x. A general function can always be written as f (x) = 1 2 ( f (x)+ f (-x)+ 1 2 ( f (x)- f (-x) in which the first part on the
Completeness and convergence of Fourier series
We now give answers to two questions: can every function with period 2 be written this way, and does the
series always converge at all x? These ideas are referred to as completeness and convergence. To specif
