In mathematics, an exponential sum may be a finite Fourier series (i.e. a trigonometric polynomial), or other finite sum formed using the exponential function, usually expressed by means of the function $\exp(2\pi ix).\,$ Therefore a typical exponential sum may take the form $$\sum \exp(2\pi ix_n),$$ summed over a finite sequence of real numbers $x_n$.
