where a0 , an , and bn are the coeﬃcients of the Fourier series of f (t). In physical applications, Parseval’s theorem says that the total energy is equal to the sum of the energies associated with the various harmonics. 6. Consider a periodic function 0, f (t) = 1, 0, −T < t < −1 −1 < t < 1 1 < t < T, , |T | > 1.
Expand it in a complex Fourier series. Plot |cn |2 vs. n for T = 2 and T = 4 respectively.
