Problem 18P

Problem 18P

Use a computer to plot the sum of sine waves on the right-hand side of equation B.41, terminating the sum first at k = 1, then at k = 3, 5, 15, and 25. Notice how the series does converge to the square-wave function that we started with, but the convergence is not particularly fast.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1

As stated in equation (B.41), the square wave can be written as  

Now we have to use this formula for different values of  and then we have to show that the sum converges to the square wave.
