Homework Help: Proof of Plancherel for quantum

  1. Oct 5, 2011 #1
    So, I've been asked to show that
    f(x)=Ʃn=0 [ansin(nπx/a) + bncos(nπx/a)

    is equivalent to f(x)=Ʃn=-∞ cneinx/a

    I'm kinda stuck. i want to turn this into the exponential form but I don't see how to condense this into a single term.

    Nevermind, Solved

    Use the substitution that sinu = 0.5i (e^iu -e^-iu) and the equivalent for cosine and shift the register of the summation.
