Can someone please explain how the Fourier odd and even extensions could be used to solve differential equations? I understand how to do the extensions, but am not sure when/how to apply that knowledge.

    cant really say because im actually taking the course now but from what i have seen, its used to simplify the solution for laplace equation or heat equation, etc, which are 2nd order diff eqs

    The idea is that Fourier series allow you to decompose a periodic function as well as its derivatives into the sum of sine/cosine parts with meaningful coefficients. That's a really basic way of looking at it so if you need more depth try searching via Google or ask your professor for help.
