- How do you use even and odd function in ODEs?
- What is a periodic extension?
- How can you shorten calculations with even and odd functions?

This video talks some more about Fourier series and their use in trigonometric and even and odd functions. Much of the talk is on the period of a function and how calculations can be simplified. A great explanation of how the period of a function determines a lot about it and can help with calculations.
