something about a sum
Hi, can anyone explain this?
\[S=\sum_{v=\infty}^{\infty}\int_0^Ne^{2\pi ivx+2\pi i\frac{x^2}{N}} \mathrm{d}x\] \[=N\sum_{v=\infty}^{\infty}\int_0^1e^{2\pi iN(x^2+vx)} \mathrm{d}x\] What I'm hoping for is some intermediate steps which get from the first, step by step to the second that make sense. Please help. Last fiddled with by wildrabbitt on 20200317 at 12:53

If so, try setting x = Ny and rewrite the integral in terms of y instead of x. Chris

It is perhaps unfortunate that the variables in the integrals on both sides have the same name.

Thanks to both of you. I do understand integration by substitution but I didn't know what the substitution required was.
I should be able to do it now.
