# Sums of Sine Waves with Several Step Sizes (Sawtooth or Square Approximations)

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

This Demonstration shows the functions , for values of that run from 1 to the maximum frequency in steps of size in the bottom plot, and their sum in the top plot. This illustrates an approximation of standard waves (sawtooth, square, etc.) by adding sine waves (Fourier method).
