Proving the equality of a sum and integral.

Taken from Rudin's Real and Complex Analysis text: Suppose $f$ is a continuous function on $\mathbb{R}^1$ with period $1$. Prove that $\displaystyle\lim_{N\to\infty}\frac{1}{N}\sum_{n=1}^N f(n\alpha) ...

Demonstration with Laplace

How can I demonstrate this? If $F(t)$ is a periodic function with a period of $T>0$, then $$ \mathcal{L}\{F(t)\} = \frac{\int\limits_0^T e^{-st} F(t)\operatorname d\!t}{1-e^{-sT}}\operatorname ...

Limit of an integral with a periodic function

Let $f , g$ be continuous functions: $f:[0 , 2\pi]\rightarrow\mathbb{R}$ and $g:\mathbb{R}\rightarrow\mathbb{R}$. Assume $\forall x\in\mathbb{R}:g(x+2\pi)=g(x)$ and $$\int\limits_{0}^{2\pi} \! {g(x)} ...

Inequalities of integrals of periodic functions

I have a function that has a shape similar to $\sin(x)^2$ (could be periodic extensions of $(x/(\pi/2))^2$ defined between $-\pi/2$ to $\pi/2$ for example). Let's call it $g(x)$. I want to show that ...

Integration of nontrivial trigonometric functions

First an example which I know how to solve. If we have the following integral $$\int_{-\pi}^{\pi}\frac{1}{1+3~\cos^2(t)}dt$$ there is a very practical way to evaluate it by interpreting it as some ...
