    Stewart's book doesn't go into Fourier Series; from what I've seen they usually aren't mentioned in math until courses on "real analysis", "partial differential equations" and the like.

    By "how to do these" I suppose you mean how to find the coefficients of the terms in the series analytically? It's not that hard for trigonometric systems-- for simple periodic functions it usually just involves a couple of by parts integrations.

    A quick search on google ("calculating fourier series") gives some decent webpages, such as
