    Hi again;
    (1) This part I'll repeat from last time, so that you have it with you:

    Two important functions that we'll have to integrate when we try to find the fourier coefficients are:
    xsin(kx) and xcos(kx), for some constant k.

    We can integrate these by parts, or note that:
    xsin(kx) = d/dx ( (-1/k)xcos(kx) + (1/k^2)sin(kx) )
    xcos(kx) = d/dx ( (1/k)xsin(kx) + (1/k^2)cos(kx) )

    Now, for a function defined on the interval [0,2L], recall that the Fourier ...
