Miller S. Puckette's groundbreaking foundational work on the basics of understanding how sound and technology work. The reading can be kind of dry at times, but the amount of information and theory is nearly unparalleled. Puckette is also the creator of Max/MSP and Pure Data.

The same analysis, with some diﬀerences in sign and normalization, works for

parabolic waves. First we compute the diﬀerence:

p[n]p[n1] =

( n

N 1

2)2

(n−1

N 1

2)2

2

=

( n

N N

2N)2

( n

N N−2

2N )2

2

=

2n
N2 1

N + 1
N2

2

≈−s[n]/N.
So (again for k = 0, small compared to N) we get:

FT{p[n]}(k)≈ −1

N · −iN

2πk ·FT{s[n]}(k)

≈ −1

N · −iN

2πk · −iN
2πk

= N
4π2

k2

and as before we get the Fourier series:

p[n] 1

2π2

cos(ωn) + cos(2ωn)

4 + cos(3ωn)

9 +···
