# Pointwise convergence of Fourier series of a piecewise continuous (and Lipschitz continuous everywhere) function - a reference request

Pointwise convergence of Fourier series of a piecewise continuous (and Lipschitz continuous everywhere) function.I basically want to understand a proof for convergence of a Fourier series of $f(x)$ to $\frac{1}{2}(f(x^+)+f(x^-))$. I have seen a proof in Zygmund's book but I don't understand it as it apparently requires some number theory and also not self contained. Please suggest me a reference (book or even a web location) which gives a self contained proof without any reference to number theory. I guess the original proof by Dirichlet uses number theory.Thank you. Kindly note that I expect more than "any introductory book on fourier analysis" type of an answer.

Try Chapter 11 of Apostol's Mathematical Analysis, 2nd Ed.

Theorem 11.12 is the particular result you are after.

Thank you. Please suggest a reference where the nature of the convergence in an arbitrary neighborhood of the point is discussed in detail. The nature of convergence i mean uniform/nonuniform. – Rajesh Dachiraju Mar 3 '11 at 10:27

Let me suggest the following (among many others):

Theorem 1 in chapter 2, section 4 of
