Multiplicative Euclidean Function for an Euclidean Domain
If $a+b+c+d = 2$, then $\frac{a^2}{(a^2+1)^2}+\frac{b^2}{(b^2+1)^2}+\frac{c^2}{(c^2+1)^2}+\frac{d^2}{(d^2+1)^2}\le \frac{16}{25}$

$$f(x) = \begin{cases}0 & \text{if }-\pi<x<0, \\

\sin(x) & \text{if }0<x<\pi.

\end{cases}$$

My attempt:

I went the route of expanding this function with a complex Fourier series.

- Evaluate $\int_C\overline{z}dz$ using parametrization: $z=\sqrt{4-y^2}+iy \; (-2\le y\le 2)$
- If $f$ is holomorphic and $\,f'' = f$, then $f(z) = A \cosh z + B \sinh z$
- Primitive of holomorphic Function $\frac{1}{z}$ on an Annulus.
- Image of open donut under $\phi=z+\frac{1}{z}$
- Number of distinct values of $ \oint_\gamma \frac{dz}{(z-a_1)(z-a_2)…(z-a_n)}$ for closed $ \gamma $
- A closed form for the infinite series $\sum_{n=1}^\infty (-1)^{n+1}\arctan \left( \frac 1 n \right)$

$$f(x) = \sum_{n=-\infty}^{+\infty} C_{n}e^{inx}$$

$$C_{n} = \frac {1}{2\pi} \int_{0}^{\pi} \frac {e^{ix}-e^{-ix}}{2i} e^{-inx} \,\mathrm dx = \frac {1}{\pi}\left(\frac {1}{1-n^2}\right)$$

because only even $n$ terms survive, odd $n$ are 0

$$

C_0 = \frac {1}{2\pi} \int_{0}^{\pi} \sin(x)\, \mathrm dx = \frac {1}{\pi}

$$

so

$$

f(x) = \frac{1}{\pi} + \frac {1}{\pi} \left(\frac {e^{i2x}}{1-2^2} + \frac {e^{i4x}}{1-4^2}+\frac {e^{i6x}}{1-6^2}+\cdots\right) + \frac {1}{\pi} \left(\frac {e^{-i2x}}{1-2^2} + \frac {e^{-i4x}}{1-4^2}+\frac {e^{-i6x}}{1-6^2}+\cdots\right)

$$

In sine and cosine terms,

$$

f(x) = \frac{1}{\pi} + \frac {2}{\pi} \left(\frac {\cos(2x)}{1-2^2} + \frac {\cos(4x)}{1-4^2}+\frac {\cos(6x)}{1-6^2}+\cdots\right)

$$

But the answer in my book is given as

$$

f(x) = \frac{1}{\pi} + \frac{1}{2} \sin(x)+ \frac {2}{\pi} \left(\frac {\cos(2x)}{2^2-1} + \frac {\cos(4x)}{4^2-1}+\frac {\cos(6x)}{6^2-1}+\dotsb\right)$$

I don’t understand how there is a sine term and the denominator of the cosines has $-1$.

The $\sin$ term comes form $n=1$ you can’t devide by zero.

mh I calculated again, your $\cos(x)$ terms are right, there shouldn’t be a $-$ in the denominator

For $$\int_0^\pi \sin(x) e^{inx}\, \mathrm{d} x = \frac{1+ e^{i \pi n}}{1-n^2}$$

we have to check the case $n=1$ seperate as we can’t devide by zero.

The case $n=1$ give

$$\int_0^\pi \sin(x) \exp(x)\, \mathrm{d}x=\frac{i \pi }{2}$$

Note that, $C_1$ is a special case and you need to handle separately as

$$ C_1 = \frac {1}{2\pi} \int_{0}^{\pi} \sin(x) e^{-ix} dx \neq 0. $$

Since the function $\phi(t)$ is defined on $-L=-\pi<t<\pi=L$ , the Fourier series can be expressed as shown below :

The numerical tests of the formula are well consistent with a good accuracy.

On the figure below, small values of $m$ are taken in order to make clear the deviations in case of series limited to not enough terms.
