Explore the Fascinating Sums of Odd Powers of 1/n

/
The goal is to get a little bit closer to the values of the zeta function (ζ(s)) and the eta function (η(s)) for some odd values of s. This insight is…

Learn Further Sums Found Through Fourier Series

/
In an earlier insight, I looked at the Fourier series for some simple polynomials and what we could deduce from those series. There is a lot more to be…

Using the Fourier Series To Find Some Interesting Sums

/
Preliminaries If f(x) is periodic with period 2p and f’(x) exists and is finite for -π<x<π, then f can be written as a Fourier series: [itex]f(x)=\sum_{n=-\infty}^{\infty}a_{n}e^{inx}…

A Continuous, Nowhere Differentiable Function: Part 2

/
This is Part 2 of a series of articles in which the goal is to exhibit a continuous function that is nowhere differentiable and to explore some interesting…

A Continuous, Nowhere Differentiable Function: Part 1

/
When studying calculus, we learn that every differentiable function is continuous, but a continuous function need not be differentiable at every point.…
