Fourier Series Alternative Forms
The general form of the Fourier series is shown below. Because
of the relation between sines and cosines, the series can be represented
as a sum of either sines or cosines.
Normalising the coefficients gives:-
The above expression can be represented by either of the
following alternative forms of the Fourier Series.
The 2 variables an and bn has been
replaced by cn (cn2 =
an2 + bn2 ) and qn
