1 CHAPTER 2 FOURIER SERIES PERIODIC FUNCTIONS A function is said to have a period T if for all x,, where T is a positive constant. The least value of T>0 is called the period of. EXAMPLES We know that = sin x = sin (x + 4 ) = Therefore the function has period 2, 4, 6, etc. However, 2 is the least value and therefore is the period of f(x). Similarly cos x is a periodic function with the period 2 and tan x has period. DIRICHLET S CONDITIONS A function defined in c x c+2l can be expanded as an infinite trigonometric series of the form + provided 1. is single- valued and finite in (c, c+2l) 2. is continuous or piecewise continuous with finite number of finite discontinuities in (c, c+2l). 3. has no or finite number of maxima or minima in (c, c+2l). EULER S FORMULAS If a function defined in (c, c+2l) can be expanded as the infinite trigonometric series + then [ Formulas given above for and are called Euler s formulas for Fourier coefficients]

2 DEFINITION OF FOURIER SERIES The infinite trigonometric series + is called the Fourier series of in the interval c x c+2l, provided the coefficients are given by the Euler s formulas. EVEN FUNCTION If = in (-l, l) such that =, then is said to be an even function of x in (-l, l). If Such that = or =, then is said to be an even function of x in (-l, l). EXAMPLE y = cos x, y = are even functions. ODD FUNCTION If = in (-l, l) such that = -, then is said to be an odd function of x in (-l, l). If Such that = - or = -, then is said to be an odd function of x in (-l, l). EXAMPLE y = sin x, y = x are odd functions. FOURIER SERIES OF EVEN AND ODD FUNCTIONS 1. The Fourier series of an even function in (-l, l) contains only cosine terms (constant term included), i.e. the Fourier series of an even function in (-l, l) is given by 2

3 = + where 2. The Fourier series of an odd function in (-l, l) contains only sine terms, i.e. the Fourier series of an odd function in (-l, l) is given by =, where PROBLEMS 1. Find the Fourier series of period 2l for the function = x(2l x) in (0, 2l). Deduce the sum of = Let = + in (0, 2l) (1) = using Bernoulli s formula. = 0 3

4 Using these values in (1), we have x (2l - x) = in (0, 2l)..(2) The required series can be obtained by putting x = l in the Fourier series in (2). x = l lies in (0, 2l) and is a point of continuity of the function = x(2l x). Sum the Fourier series in (2) = f(l) i.e. = l(2l - l) i.e.. - = 2. Find the Fourier series of period 2 for the function = x cos x in 0 < x < 2. Let = +... (1) =0, if n 1 = 0 if n 1 4

5 if n 1 =, if n 1 = Using these values in (1), we get f(x) = 3. Find the Fourier series expansion of = sin ax in (-l, l). Since is defined in a range of length 2l, we can expand in Fourier series of period 2l. Also = sin[a(-x)] = -sin ax = - is an odd function of x in (-l, l). Hence Fourier series of will not contain cosine terms. Let =.(1) 5
