I'm stuck trying to solve the following problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If [tex]D_n[/tex] is the Dirichlet kernel, show that there exist positive constants [tex]c_1[/tex] and [tex]c_2[/tex] such that

[tex]for [tex]n=2,3,4,...[/tex]. By [tex]\log[/tex] they mean the natural logarithm.

c_1 \log n \le \int\limits_{ - \pi }^\pi {\left| {D_n \left( t \right)} \right|dt} \le c_2 \log n ,

[/tex]

I know that

[tex]And it's easy to see that

D_n \left( t \right) = \frac{1}{\pi }\left( {\frac{1}{2} + \sum\limits_{N = 1}^n {\cos \left( {Nt} \right)} } \right) = \frac{1}{{2\pi }}\sum\limits_{N = - n}^n {e^{iNt} } = \frac{{\sin \left( {nt + \frac{t}{2}} \right)}}{{2\pi \sin \left( {\frac{t}{2}} \right)}}

[/tex]

[tex]But that is all I can do. I have no idea on how [tex]\log[/tex] comes into the picture. Any help, suggestions or tips would be much appreciated.

\left| {D_n \left( t \right)} \right| = \frac{1}{\pi }\left( {\frac{1}{2} + \left| {\sum\limits_{N = 1}^n {\cos \left( {Nt} \right)} } \right|} \right) \le \frac{1}{\pi }\left( {\frac{1}{2} + n} \right)

[/tex]
