    Find Fourier coefficients of g(x) = f(2x)

    Hi, I have the following problem: Assume that the function is -periodic and has the Fourier series: Find the Fourier coefficients of the function g(x) = f(2x) As far as I understood, the Fourier coefficients of this function can not be a number, because we don't have the function...

    Interval of Convergence for differing odd/even coefficients of power series

    Hello, I am studying for a midterm this week. One of the practice problems is to find the radius of convergence of \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} a_n x^n where a_n = 5^n if n is odd and a_n = 1/3^n if n is even. It took me a while to hazard a guess that I take the smaller of the two radii? Then a =...

    Exponents as Coefficients

    Can an exponent ever be considered the coefficient of a variable? For instance, in the expression x^2, what is the coefficient of x? Is it 2, or is it x, since x^2 = x*x?

    Determinant with binomial coefficients.

    So i have to find the values of this determinant: but i don't have any good ideas since these coefficients confuse me. I could expand it using first two columns but it doesn't seem easier after that.

    homogeneous differential equation with constant coefficients

    Hi, I need some help solving this homogeneous differential equation with constant coefficients for initial condition; y''''-4y=0 and y(0)=1 y(1)=0 y(-1)=0 y(inf)=0 Well I get as far as y=C1*e^(x*sqrt(2)) + C2*e^(-x*sqrt(2)) + C3*cos(x*sqrt(2)) + C4*sin(x*sqrt(2)), but I don't know how to...

    Deriving variable weight from coefficients

    Lets say you have a number of variables with different coefficients. say: var1 0.8091 var2 -0.0123 var3 0.1413 var4 0.1367 var5 -0.0506 etc I can see that var1 is responsible for most of the variation within the model, but how do I calculate it's relaive weight compared to the other...

    Solving the DE using undetermined coefficients.

    Hello, I have the DE: y'' + 2y'+y=2x \cdot sin(x) and I proceed to solve using the method of undetermined coefficients and some work I got the following equation and I am not sure how to solve for the coefficients: [ \, \alpha \, (2mx+2b+1) \, + \, 2\beta \,] \, cos(x) + [\, \beta \, (-2mx-b-1)...

    Looking for a proof related to one of the characteristic polynomial coefficients

    Hi. Given the characteristic polynomial P_A(\lambda)=\sum_{k=0}^{n}a_k\lambda^k of a matrix A\in \mathbb{R}^{n\times n}, it is easy to see why |A|=a_0 (A's determinant is the zero'th coefficient),but why is a_{n-1} in particular is A's trace? that's just plain weird. I looked online for a proof...

    Use the method of undetermined coefficients to solve the given system

    This is the system of equations: dx/dt = 2x+3y-16 dy/dt = -x-2y+11 Ok, thus far I have attempted to convert into a matrix which i wasn't sure if i did right: X= (2 3) + (-16) (-1 2) (11) Have i converted this correctly? After this point do i determine the elegenvalues for...

    All binomial coefficients (n p) are divisible by a prime p only if n is a power of p

    I'm looking for a "high school / undergraduate" demonstration for the: All the binomial coefficients $\binom{n}{i}$ where $0\lt i \lt n$, are divisible by a prime p only if n is a power of p. There is a "elementary" demonstration of reciprocal here...

    Restraining quadratic equation to positive coefficients

    Hi, I am a postgraduate student carrying out air quality research for my thesis. I have determined a best fit quadratic equation with a zero intercept (y = 1.1133x2 – 0.0844x) using OLS regression analysis (MS Excel 2013) for a small dataset. As you can see, this has resulted in a negative...
