Okay, these might be better off in two separate threads but...they are somewhat related I suppse.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Anyway, I would like to know how you go about computing the convolution of two functions on the unit circle. Let's say that f(x) = x and g(x) = 1 on the interval [0, Pi] and [0, Pi/2] respectively. I think I get the idea in the discrete case, but seem to have trouble with the continuous case for some reason...

Also, is there a good reference for reading about delta functions, approximate identities and the like? It seems like most texts I've run across barely touch on the subject, but I'd like to see a more thorough, understandable treatment.

Thanks!
