because normally the question i'd encountered has the same interval, eg -2
maybe we can do a shift of the function by substituting u=t-2
|dw:1343832213995:dw| this can be transformed into regular Heaviside function

you mean\[f(t)=5(1-u_2(t))\]?
but that doesn't fix the intervals, which I do think need to be symmetric
why 1/5 ?
sorry ... (t - 2)/2
|dw:1343833073250:dw|
the Fourier expansion of left is given by http://mathworld.wolfram.com/FourierSeriesSquareWave.html
|dw:1343833287038:dw|
I still don't see why you need the /2 part
that will make the interval of |dw:1343833578897:dw|
however that was not necessary ... i guess
but why does it have to be from -1 to 1? can't it just be symmetric?
i guess yes i can be ... i thought unit would make easier.
I just did \(x=t-2\)\[A_0=\frac1{2(2)}\int_{-2}^2f(x)dx=\frac14\int_{-2}^05dx=\frac52\]
|dw:1343833717021:dw|
|dw:1343833858118:dw|
\[A_n=\frac12\int_{-2}^2f(x)\cos\left({n\pi x\over2}\right)dx=\frac52\int_{-2}^0\cos\left({n\pi x\over2}\right)dx=\frac5{n\pi}\sin(n\pi)\]
\[B_n=\frac52\int_{-2}^0\sin\left(n\pi x\over2\right)dx=\frac5{n\pi}\left(\cos(n\pi)-1\right)\]
but now this formula will be for f(x)=f(t-2) so I guess this is wrong oh well, been a while since I've done fourier series
If your question is about the period of the function...(piecewise continuous ) then the answer will be , normally ,"4",...because ! a periodic function is entirely defined by its restriction "to one period"... Usually, that's what we do for fourier expansion's exercises !
doesn't anyone know how to plug this into wolf?
so , because "giving answers" is not allowed ! I'll let you do the calculation by yourself ! \[a_n=\frac{2}{4}\int\limits_{0}^{4}f(t)\cos(n \frac{2 \pi}{4}t)dt\] \[b_n=\frac{2}{4}\int\limits_{0}^{4}f(t)\sin(n \frac{2 \pi}{4}t)dt \] To calculate these integrals just "split them" \[\int\limits_{0}^{2}-------+\int\limits_{2}^{4}--------\]
Plot[5/2 + 5*4/(2*Pi)*Sum[Sin[(2 n + 1)*Pi*(x)/2]/(2 n + 1), {n, 0, 10}], {x , 0, 10}]
|dw:1343836422904:dw| the example at wolframmathworld was for 0 to 2L
owh so for the expansion it doesnt necessary to be symmetrical? because the formula i'd received in the notes is from -L to L, where L is period/2.. thats the only question im wondering about. if it can be non-symmetrical then everythings is ok already.
if it's symmetric then the calculation is easier ... for eg. if the function is odd ... then you don't have to calculate a_0 and a_n if it's even then you don't have to calculate b_n
the fastest way to get Fourier series is to reduce the function into some known odd or even function ... it would help you to skip lot's of unnecessary steps.
