    Evaluate infinite sum using Parseval's theorem (Fourier series)

    Homework Statement Show that: \sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{n^4} = \frac{π^4}{90} Hint: Use Parseval's theorem Homework Equations Parseval's theorem: \frac{1}{\pi}\int_{-\pi}^{\pi} |f(x)|^2dx = \frac{a_0^2}{2}+\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}(a_n^2+b_n^2) The Attempt at a Solution I've been trying to solve...
