Parseval - how to go from complex to real coefficients?

  1. Oct 4, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'd like to use Parseval's equation to somehow express [itex]\sum a^{2}_{k}[/itex]


    2. Relevant equations
    http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Fourier_series#Plancherel.27s_and_Parseval.27s_theorems
    At the bottom they have done that, but I'm not sure how they went from complex to real coefficients.
    No idea where they got the [itex]a^{2}_{0}[/itex] from too.


    3. The attempt at a solution
    Any ideas would be appreciated.
