Fourier series wave-equation Definition and 4 Discussions

In mathematics, a Fourier series () is a periodic function composed of harmonically related sinusoids, combined by a weighted summation. With appropriate weights, one cycle (or period) of the summation can be made to approximate an arbitrary function in that interval (or the entire function if it too is periodic). As such, the summation is a synthesis of another function. The discrete-time Fourier transform is an example of Fourier series. The process of deriving weights that describe a given function is a form of Fourier analysis. For functions on unbounded intervals, the analysis and synthesis analogies are Fourier transform and inverse transform.

    Solving Coefficient not using Fourier Series coefficient

    Given the Laplace's equation with several boundary conditions. finally i got the general solution u(x,t). One of the condition is that: u(1,y)=y(1-y) After working on this I finally got: ∑An sin(π n y )sinh (π n) = y(1-y) However, i was asked to find An, by not using Fourier series...

    Fourier series solution of wave equation

    Homework Statement Suppose a horizontally stretched string is heavy enough for the effects of gravity to be significant, so that the wave equation must be replaced by ##u_{tt} = c^2u_{xx} - g## where ##g## is the acceleration due to gravity. The boundary conditions are ##u(0,t) = u(l,t) = 0##...
