FOURIER COEFFICIENTS

The [Formula] key toggles display of the formula defining the Fourier
coefficients a_{n} and b_{n}. The [Sine] and [Cosine]
keys select between sine series or cosine series. Within each of these
choices, the [All terms], [Odd terms], and [Even terms] keys restrict
terms as stated. When possible, values of terms will be preserved
under these changes, while the lost terms are set to zero.

Use the sliders at right to select values of these coefficients. Use the [<] and [>] keys for fine adjustments. The sum of the selected terms is shown in yellow, and the new term in the Fourier series is shown in grey while the mousekey is held down.

Use the [Reset] key to reset all coefficients to zero.

Use the keys [A] - [G] to select a "target" function, which is displayed in green.

Select [Distance] to display the Root Mean Square distance between the selected finite Fourier sum and the target function.
