NFourierTrigSeries


gives a numerical approximation to the order n Fourier trigonometric series expansion of expr, where expr is a periodic function of t with period .
  • The numerical approximation to the order n Fourier exponential series expansion of expr is by default defined to be c0+ckCos[k t]+dk Sin[k t].
  • The coefficient is defined to be NIntegrate[expr Cos[k t], {t, -, }] and the coefficient is defined to be NIntegrate[expr Sin[k t], {t, -, }].
  • Different choices for the period of expr can be specified using the option FourierParameters.
  • With the setting FourierParameters, expr is assumed to have a period of , and the order n Fourier exponential series expansion computed by is (+ck Cos[2 b k t]+dk Sin[2 b k t]). Here, the coefficient is defined to be NIntegrate[expr Cos[b k t], {t, -, }] and the coefficient is defined to be NIntegrate[expr Sin[b k t], {t, -, }].
