Representing cos(npi/2) in general form

  1. Feb 26, 2012 #1
    hi i am currently trying to solve a fourier series question and i realise for example cos(npi) can be represented as (-1)n.

    So i was wandering is there anyway to represent cos(npi/2) to a general form too?

    i suppose something like
    (1+(-1)n)/2*(-1)n/2
