Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Is there any general form for a Fourier series of a function f(x)? I'm not particularly wellversed in the subject, although I'll try to help... :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2My first observation of the problem is that f(x) goes through three cycles over the interval (3pi, 3pi)...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the first thing I have to find is the fourier coefficient. I think it is 1/4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yep, that appears correct to me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The resource I am checking indicate that the formula for a_n would be 1/pi * integral from pi to pi of f(x) cos(nx) dx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So... \( \displaystyle a_n = \frac{1}{\pi} \left( \int_{\pi}^{0} 0 \; \textrm{d}x + \int_{0}^{\pi} \frac{1}{\pi} x \cos nx \; \textrm{d}x \right) \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah so then it is correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So I am finding: \( \displaystyle a_n = \frac{\pi n \sin n \pi + \cos \pi n  1}{\pi^2 n^2} \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2My resource shows an additional sin(nx) there \( \displaystyle \frac{1}{\pi} \int_{0}^{\pi} \frac{1}{\pi} x \sin nx \; \textrm{d}x \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh it's the same I just forgot to write the nx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sorry, I gotta go for school. I take the calculation of this integral to wolfram... Wolfram evaluates it out as: \( \displaystyle b_n = \frac{\sin \pi n  \pi n \cos \pi n}{\pi^2 n^2} \) http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=integral+from+0+to+pi+of+1%2Fpi%5E2+x+sin%28n+x%29+dx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and good luck, I think you're on the right track. :) I was using this as my resource: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/GeneralizedFourierSeries.html Just the end bit with the formula.
