Fourier Analysis

Proof of sum of a given infinite series of constants (closed form).

The sum of the infinite series, 1/2^2 - 2/3^2 + 3/4^2 - 4/5^2 + ... is given as pi^2/12 - log 2 on pages 64-65 in the book "Summation of Series" by L. B. W. Jolley, 2nd ed., 1961, Dover Pubs. Inc. (the ^ symbol denotes exponentiation in the above series and sum). For most of the series in his book, he lists a source (referen

Derivation of Fourier Transform of a Gaussian

From equation 6 of the attached, derive equation 7. In the expression for s(v), the natural log does not apply to the term [(v-vo)/(dv/2)]^2 , should just be ln(2). Yes, the limits from minus infinity to plus inifinity are adequate. Thanks for the help!
