So last time, I say we took the first step in analyzing general periodic phenomena via the sum, so several combination, a linear combination of simple building blocks, simple periodic phenomena. So let me remind you what we did because it’s very important that you realize what we did and what we didn’t do. We said suppose that you can write a periodic signal in a certain form what has to happen. So we start off by saying F of T is a given periodic function, periodic signal. Function, signal same thing. And just to be definite we took it to have period one, all right? And the question is can it be represented in terms of others and suppose it can be represented in terms of other simple signals of period one, namely the complex exponential. ...
