Homework Help: Jump discontinuity with fourier series

  1. Mar 8, 2009 #1
    Hi all,
    I couldnt find any proof of the following statement: The Fourier series expansion of f(x), which has a discontinuity at y, takes on the mean of the left and right limits
    i.e. f(y)= (1/2)(f(y+)+f(y-))

    is there anyone who can help me?
