On the Fourier Extension of Nonperiodic Functions
We obtain exponentially accurate Fourier series for nonperiodic functions on the interval [-1, 1] by extending these functions to periodic functions on a larger domain. The series may be evaluated, but not constructed, by means of the FFT. A complete convergence theory is given based on orthogonal polynomials that resemble Chebyshev polynomials of the first and second kinds. We analyze a previously proposed numerical method, which is unstable in theory but stable in practice. We propose a new numerical method that is stable both in theory and in practice. Key words.
