    I think the summation is mostly zeros, except for r=1 where it is 0/0 it's pi at r=1 ?

    as far as I can see, your very first line, evaluated at x=pi/2 gives 2/pi *(1 + 2*pi/4) = 2/pi +1

    it seems that you are taking 2pi as period, although it works, pi should also work fine.

    sorry the result was correct .. i forgot it was for even case. On Mathematica Plot[2/Pi - Sum[2/Pi * 1/(4 n^2 - 1) Cos[2 n x], {n, 1, 20}], {x, 0, 2 Pi}]

    so the final series is \[ |\sin x| = {2 \over \pi} +{2 \over \pi} \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac 1{1 - 4 n^2} \cos (2nx) \]

    In case you didn't find your mistake, it happens when you change the index from n=2,4,6... to r=1,2,3... you should substitute n=2r (so that r= n/2 giving 1,2,3...) you then get exper's result

    ah yes \[\begin{align*} % S(x) S(x)&=\frac{2}\pi+\frac2\pi\sum\limits_{n=1}^\infty\left(\frac{1+(-1)^{n}}{1-n^2}\right)\cos(nx)\\ &=\frac{2}\pi\left(1+2\sum\limits_{n=2,4,6\dots}^\infty\frac{\cos(nx)}{1-n^2}\right)\\ &=\frac{4}\pi\left(\frac12+\sum\limits_{r=1}^\infty\frac{\cos(2rx)}{1-(2r)^2}\right)\\ \\&=\frac4\pi\left(\frac12-\frac{\cos(2x)}{3}-\frac{\cos(4x)}{15}-\frac{\cos(6x)}{35}-\dots\right) \end{align*}\]

    \[\begin{align*} % S(x) S(x) &=\frac{4}\pi\left(\frac12+\sum\limits_{r=1}^\infty\frac{\cos(2rx)}{1-(2r)^2}\right)\\ \\ S(\tfrac\pi2)&=\frac{4}\pi\left(\frac12+\sum\limits_{r=1}^\infty\frac{\cos(\pi r)}{1-4r^2}\right)\\ 1&=\frac{4}\pi\left(\frac12+\sum\limits_{r=1}^\infty\frac{(-1)^{r}}{1-4r^2}\right)\\ \frac\pi4&=\frac12+\sum\limits_{r=1}^\infty\frac{(-1)^{r}}{1-4r^2}\\ \end{align*}\] thats better thanks to both of you
