    Convolution of cos and rect

    I am asked to find the convolution of \beta * L where \beta(x)=\begin{cases} \frac{\pi}{4a}\cos\left(\frac{\pi x}{2a}\right) & \left|x\right|<a\\ 0 & \left|x\right|\geq a \end{cases} L(x)=\begin{cases} 1 & \left|x\right|<1\\ 0 & \left|x\right|\geq 1 \end{cases} Knowing that...

    Discrete Cosine Transformation

    Hi all, I'm an undergrad from brazil. While I was fumbing around with a C++ implementation of DCT (discrete cosine transform - II : I stumbled upon something: DCT(X) * DCT(Y) = A* X*Y where X and Y are vectors. Let me demonstrate...

    half range cosine series

    i am asked to find the half range cosine series for f(x) = cos x , 0<x < (π/2 ) but , i dont understand the working provided by the author , Can someone explain how to transform the upper circled part to lower circled part ?

    Addition/subtraction formulas for sine or cosine to simplify the following

    cos(3pi/10)cos(pi/5)-sin(3pi/10)sin(pi/5) factor cos and sin and get common denominators and combine: cos(5pi/10)-sin(5pi/10) cosine(90 degrees)-sin(90 degrees) 0-1 answer is -1? Am I correct? Wait I see the formula for this is : cos(a+b) so then I do cos(3pi/10+pi/5) cos(5pi/10) and...

    Fourier cosine series

    why the author need to differentiate the a1 using L'hopital rule ? the working already showed that the a1 = 0 , am I right ?

    Not quite sure what I did wrong. Cosine equation

    Okay, so we were ask to find all solutions for cos(t)=.72 and round to 2 decimal places where appropriate. I got .77+2pi and 2pi-.77+2pi but that not right. So, whats the right answer. Thanks in advance.

    Discrete Cosine Transform

    Hello, I'm trying to understand the 2D-DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform) and it is giving me some trouble. I think I understand the logic. The summation is representative of "loops" whereby the function f(x,y) (spatial domain) undergoes the transformation. The problem I have is that I cannot see...

    Proof sin(θ)=cos(θ) when...

    I know that adjacent side should be equal to opposite which happens at $\dfrac{\pi}{4}$ and $\dfrac{5\pi}{4}$ (plus coterminal angles); the quadrants are 1 and 3 because signs of sin and cos thus coincide. I'm not sure that proves it though? How do I go about this? I don't think the proof should...

    Sine and cosine rules

    Hi, In a triangle where only the sides are given, one uses the cosine rule to find an angle. However, having done so, is it then possible to use the sine rule to find another angle? Apologies in advance if the question is dumb.(Angry) Thank you and go well.

    Using two vectors to prove cosine identity

    The two vectors a and b lie in the xy plane and make angles \alpha and \beta with the x-axis. By evaluating a \cdot b in two ways prove the well known trig identity: \cos (\alpha + \beta) = \cos \alpha \cos \beta + \sin \alpha \sin \beta So I drew a diagram of what it describes but it...
