  • $\begingroup$ What's $[n]$ suppose to be? perhaps the question has a typo? $\endgroup$ – Jean-Sébastien Nov 2 '12 at 19:05
  • $\begingroup$ Kerry just means $\sin(n)$ $\endgroup$ – user17762 Nov 2 '12 at 19:12

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah floor or $n$ is just $n$, but this may just be it because sum of $\sin(n)/n$ is $1/2(\pi-1)$ $\endgroup$ – Jean-Sébastien Nov 2 '12 at 19:16

$\sum\limits^{\infty}_{n=1}\dfrac{\sin{n\theta}}{n}$ is the Fourier series for $f(\theta)=\dfrac{\pi-\theta}{2}, \;\; 0<\theta<2\pi,$ and converges uniformly on every closed interval $[\alpha, \beta], \;\; 0<\alpha<\beta<2\pi$ by Dirichlet's test.
