It's what you are leading up to studying, though apparently your teacher has not told you yet use\[\cos\alpha\cos\beta=\frac12[\cos(\alpha-\beta)+\cos(\alpha+\beta)]\]to get this integral manageable.
what is alpha and what is beta? m and n? or L and -L?
\(\alpha\) and \(\beta\) are just the arguments of the cosines:\[\alpha=\frac{m\pi x}L\]\[\beta=\frac{n\pi x}L\]
so do we then take the integral of (1/2)[cos(alpha-beta)+cos(alpha+beta)]?
yes
but how would i integral the inside? (alpha-beta)?
sin(alpa)cos(beta)?
alpha and beta just represent any argument in the trig identity I am showing you substitute\[\alpha=\frac{m\pi x}L\]\[\beta=\frac{n\pi x}L\]
so wouldnt the integral be \[\sin( \alpha)\]\[\cos (\beta)\]
multiplied together that is?
no, I have no idea where you are getting that :p \[\cos\alpha\cos\beta=\frac12[\cos(\alpha-\beta)+\cos(\alpha+\beta)]\]sub for \(\alpha\) and \(\beta\) as I have stated above twice before
you get\[\cos\left(\frac{m\pi x}L\right)\cos\left(\frac{n\pi x}L\right)=\frac12[\cos\left(\frac{\pi x}L(m-n)\right)+\cos\left(\frac{\pi x}L(m+n)\right)\]which you can integrate
ok, just a second, let me give that a try
also, because this integral is even we can write\[\int_{-L}^L\cos\left(\frac{m\pi x}L\right)\cos\left(\frac{n\pi x}L\right)dx=2\int_0^L\cos\left(\frac{m\pi x}L\right)\cos\left(\frac{n\pi x}L\right)dx\]
(1/2pi)(L((sin(pix(m-n)/L)/(m-n))+sin(pix(m+n)/L)/(m+n))
is that right?
It's hard for me to see if all those parentheses are in the right places, but it looks right I'm afraid I have to go. Here's a link to the problem you are solving: http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/DE/PeriodicOrthogonal.aspx#BVPFourier_Orthog_Ex1 Look at example 1 (the last part of it) for reference Good luck!
ok thank you for your patient and your help TurningTest
