1. ## Fourier series

Define $\displaystyle f(t)=e^{-t} on [-\pi,\pi)$ and extend f to be $\displaystyle 2\pi$-periodic.Find the complex Fourier series of f.
Then, apply Parseval's relation to f to evaluate $\displaystyle /sum {1/(1+k^2)}$.
I know how the complex fourier series looks like but I don't know how to extend it periodically

The function $\displaystyle e^{t}$ is not peroidic, but when you find its Fourier series on $\displaystyle [-\pi,\pi)$ and then let $\displaystyle t \in \mathbb{R}$ not just the interval you will be a new function that is periodic on all of $\displaystyle \mathbb{R}$ (It will just be translated copies of the series on the original interval)

Kind regards
