Title: Non-periodic trigonometric approximation
The suitable basis functions for approximating periodic function are
periodic, trigonometric functions. When the function is not periodic,
a viable alternative is to consider polynomials as basis functions.
In this talk we will point out the inadequacy of polynomial
approximation and suggest a new set of basis functions. The new set
does not suffer from the drawbacks of polynomial approximation and
the error which results goes to zero exponentially fast.
