Periodic Functions and Fourier Series


Periodic functions l.jpg

A function

is periodic

if it is defined for all real

such that

Periodic Functions

and if there is some positive number,

.


Fourier series l.jpg

be a periodic function with period

Fourier Series

The function can be represented by a trigonometric series as:


Slide7 l.jpg

What kind of trigonometric (series) functions are we talking about?


Slide10 l.jpg

and

.

We want to determine the coefficients,

Let us first remember some useful integrations.


Slide12 l.jpg

for all values of m.


Slide14 l.jpg

Determine

to

Integrate both sides of (1) from


Slide16 l.jpg

is the average (dc) value of the

function,

to

instead.

You may integrate both sides of (1) from

It is alright as long as the integration is performed over one period.


Slide20 l.jpg

Determine

Multiply (1) by

Example 1. Find the Fourier series of the following periodic function.


Slide37 l.jpg

Therefore, the corresponding Fourier series is

In writing the Fourier series we may not be able to consider infinite number of terms for practical reasons. The question therefore, is – how many terms to consider?

Even and Odd Functions

(We are not talking about even or odd numbers.)


Slide46 l.jpg

Mathematically speaking -

Even Functions

The value of the function would be the same when we walk equal distances along the X-axis in opposite directions.


Slide47 l.jpg

Mathematically speaking -

Odd Functions

The value of the function would change its sign but with the same magnitude when we walk equal distances along the X-axis in opposite directions.

Even functions can solely be represented by cosine waves because, cosine waves are even functions. A sum of even functions is another even function.

Odd functions can solely be represented by sine waves because, sine waves are odd functions. A sum of odd functions is another odd function.


Slide50 l.jpg

The Fourier series of an even function

is expressed in terms of a cosine series.

The Fourier series of an odd function

is expressed in terms of a sine series.


Slide51 l.jpg

Example 2. Find the Fourier series of the following periodic function.


Slide53 l.jpg

Use integration by parts. Details are shown in your class note.


Slide55 l.jpg

This is an even function.

Therefore,

The corresponding Fourier series is


Slide56 l.jpg

Functions Having Arbitrary Period

w is the angular velocity in radians per second.


Slide57 l.jpg

f is the frequency of the periodic function,

where

Therefore,


Slide58 l.jpg

Now change the limits of integration.

Example 4. Find the Fourier series of the following periodic function.


Slide63 l.jpg

This is an odd function. Therefore,


Slide64 l.jpg

Use integration by parts.


Slide65 l.jpg

when n is even.


Slide66 l.jpg

Therefore, the Fourier series is

The Complex Form of Fourier Series

Let us utilize the Euler formulae.

th harmonic component of (1) can be

The

Slide72 l.jpg

The coefficients can be evaluated in the following manner.

Note that

is the complex conjugate of

.

Hence we may write that
