    (See attached file for full problem description)

    Consider a periodic function f(x) with period L.
    Over one period, f(x) = sin(2*pi*x/L) over the interval -L/4 to L/4, f(x) = 0 over the intervals -L/2 to -L/4, and L/4 to L/2.
    Derive an expression for the nth Fourier series coefficient, an.
    In the Fourier series expansion

    plot for n = -4 to 4 using matlab, and superimpose onto a plot for f(x)
