I'm trying to find a Fourier series for exp(-ax) where a is a positive constant. How is exp(-ax) piecewise smooth?

It is piecewise smooth in one big piece :smile:

If you take piecewise smooth to mean: smooth in all but finitely many points, it satisfies the definition because the number of points in which it is not smooth is zero ([itex]< \infty[/itex]).
