Consider the function f defined in Problem 21 and let em (x) = f (x) — sm (x ).Plot|em (x )| versus x for 0 < x < 2 for several values of m. Find the smallest value of m for which |em(x)| <0.01 for all x.
Consider the function f defined in Problem 24 and let em (x) = f (x) — sm (x ).Plot|em (x )| versus x for 0 < x < 3 for several values of m. Find the smallest value of m for which |em(x)| < 0.1 for all x.

F (x) = f f (t) dt

is always periodic.
29. In this problem we indicate certain similarities between three-dimensional geometric vectors and Fourier series.
(a) Let v1, v2, and v3 be a set of mutually orthogonal vectors in three dimensions and let u be any three-dimensional vector. Show that
u = a1v1 + a2v2 + a3v3, (i)
where
u • v.
a. =----L, i = 1, 2, 3. (ii)
vi • vi
Show that at can be interpreted as the projection of u in the direction of v. divided by the length of v..
(b) Define the inner product (u,v) by
fL
(u, v) = I u(x)v(x) dx. (iii)
Also let
(iv)
το (x) = cos(nn x /L), n = 0, 1, 2,...;
(x) = sin(nnx/L), n = 1, 2,....
Show that Eq. (10) can be written in the form a
(f^n) = 7 (τ0,τ) + 12 am (τς ) + 12 bm (^ς Σ (v)
m=1 ς=1
(c) Use Eq. (v) and the corresponding equation for (f, tyn) together with the orthogonality relations to show that
a = (f’ Το ) , n = 0, 1, 2,...; b = (f ^n) , n = 1, 2,.... (vi)
n (Τ„,Τ„) n (*„ ,f„)
Note the resemblance between Eqs. (vi) and Eq. (ii). The functions το and tyn play a role for functions similar to that of the orthogonal vectors v1, v2, and v3 in three-dimensional

Observe also that any vector in three dimensions can be expressed as a linear combination of three mutually orthogonal vectors. In a somewhat similar way any sufficiently smooth function defined on — L < x < L can be expressed as a linear combination of the mutually orthogonal functions cos(nnx/L) and sin(nnx/L), that is, as a Fourier series.
10.3 The Fourier Convergence Theorem
In the preceding section we showed that if the Fourier series

f + E \m cos — + bm sin —) (1)
m = 1
converges and thereby defines a function f, then f is periodic with period 2L, and the coefficients am and bm are related to f (x) by the Euler-Fourier formulas:
