Und it is certainly possible to find another different function).
Such a techinque would prove useful when solving a partial differencial equation which leads to a two point boundary value problem. They are solved in terms of a Fourier series. But we simply have a series solution not a closed form solution.
I realize that the answer is probably not. For example, when working with a power series there is no standard way. However we can manipulate the infinite series and try to create an ordinary differencial equation out of it so we can solve for the function. But is there some useful techique for inverting a Fourier series like inverting a a power series?
