Dirichlet's Test for Convergence of a Series

Verify that (1/2i)sum {(e^(inx))/n} (where n does not equal zero in the sum) is the Fourier series of the 2 Pi periodic function defined by f(0)=0 and f(x)=-Pi/2-x/2 for between -pi and 0 and f(x)= Pi/2-x/2 for x between 0 and Pi. Show that the Fourier series is convergent. (Note that the function is not continuous. Show t
