Abstract:

The subject of the finite Fourier series and some new applications to problems of elementary geometry are applied to a theorem of Jesse Douglas on skew pentagons in space. It is shown here that Douglas theorem amounts to the graphical harmonic analysis of skew pentagons and that it is also the source of striking outdoor sculptures. Author
