I was wondering if it is possible to express the norm of a function in terms of fourier coefficient. If so, how do you go through it if given a particular function.

What norm? The [tex]L^2[/tex]-norm can be expressed, and it is the square root of the sum of the squares of the coefficients.

Here is a sample question:

What are the fourier coefficients of the function f(x)=ae^(-ix)+b+ce^(ix)? And express the norm in terms of fourier coefficients.

They don't mention if it is the L^2 norm or not.

Fourier Coefficients

well, it's only the L2 norm (a measure of energy) in which the L2 norm of the time-domain function (over one period) is equal to the L2 of the frequency-domain data (the Fourier coefficients).

i think the L2 norm of your f(x) is a2 + b2 + c2.
