How can I plot the attached two functions with limits from -pi to pi for different values of m ? Walter Roberson on 20 Sep 2021
x=[-pi:0.1:pi]
x = 1×63

for alpha=1:10
m = (1:alpha).';
Function_5 = (pi/2) + sum(((2 .* (-1).^m-1) .* cos(m.*x) ./ (pi .* m.^2)),1);

f = @(x) 2/pi + sum(2 .* ((-1).^m - 1)./(pi .* m.^2) .* cos( m.*x ), 1);
