Various sets of conditions have been discovered which ensure that these assumptions are justified, and the Dirichlet theorem that follows expresses one of these possibilities: Dirichlet theorem. 6a) converges to x(t) at all the points where x(t) is continuous. At jumps (discontinuities) the Fourier series converges to the midpoint of the jump. Moreover, if x(t) is complex (a case of little interest for our purposes), the conditions apply to its real and imaginary parts separately. Two things are worthy of note at this point.

24) where the dot indicates the time derivative and c is the coefficient of viscous damping, with units N s/m. 24) is written with the minus sign indicating that the damping force resists an increase in velocity. 1). The mass represents the inertia properties of physical bodies that, under the action of a given applied force F, are set in motion with an acceleration that is inversely proportional to their mass. Finally, it is interesting to consider a few examples of ‘equivalent springs’ keq, meaning by this term the replacement of one or more combination of stiff elements with a single spring that takes into account and represents— for the problem at hand—the stiffness of such combination.

71c) 4. 66). 70), these functions formally satisfy the defining property of δ(t). e. Copyright © 2003 Taylor & Francis Group LLC where in the second integral we introduced the variable and the wellbehaved test function g(t) is assumed to vanish fast enough at infinity to ensure the convergence of any integral in which it occurs. 5(b) show a sequence of such functions for three decreasing values of ε: Gaussian functions with unit area in Fig. 5(a) and Lorentzian functions with unit area in Fig. 5(b).
