    Finite Fourier Transform on a 3d wave

    Finite Fourier Transform on a 2d wave How does the finite fourier transform work exactly? The transform of f(x) is \widetilde{f}(\lambda_{n}) =\int^{L}_{0} f(x) X_{n} dx If I had a 3d wave equation pde and I applied Finite fourier transform on the pde for z(x,y,t)=X(x)Y(y)T(t)...

    When integrating by trig substitution why do you use what you use?

    when integrating by trig substitution why do you use what you use?? for example int. (1+x^2)^0.5 dx why do you use x= tan u i mean obviously because it works, but if you didn't know it works how would you figure it out? i would think that you should use x=sinh u but ive been trying...

    Some questions for non/homogeneous equations

    what do you do when m=0, do you just have 1 term + a constant? what do you do when there is only 1 value for m. do you have Ae^mt + Ate^mt or what? im a little confused. EDIT -for differential equations i mean, when youre trying to solve for y and the equation has differentials of y in...

    Is it mathematically sound to do this

    apply integration by parts twice and swapping the u and v's and then rearranging the equation to say that it is equal to bla/2 like for example i said u is x^n or something and v' is sin x or something. later on when im faced with another integral, i apply the int by parts but this time...

    I^2 = -1 or +1

    i was taught that i2 = -1 because ((-1)1/2)2=(-1)2/2=(-1)1=-1 but isnt it mathematically correct to say \sqrt{-1} * \sqrt{-1} = \sqrt{-1*-1} = \sqrt{1} = 1 what the heck!! Is there some bleedingly obvious thing im missing.
