Homework Help: Linear Algebra

Posted by Nicole on Sunday, December 7, 2008 at 7:04pm.


I'm trying to find the Fourier Series of a function which is 1 from -pi/2 to pi/2, and zero everywhere else
inside of -pi to pi. I realize this is a square wave and I began the problem with a piecewise function

s(t) = 1 abs(t) < pi/2
0 abs(t) > pi/2

Then I had

a_k = 1/pi integral(from -pi to pi) of [cos(kt)dt]


b_k = 1/pi integral(from -pi to pi) of [sin(kt)dt]

but I don't know what to do from here.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!
