"A Fourier Series Approach to the Isoperimetric Problem"

We will discuss the isoperimetric problem, which is a question of relating the area of an enclosed space to its perimeter (at least in the plane). We will see how this inequality comes to fruition and what it’s optimal solution is using Fourier series. Time permitting, we will look at generalizations of the problem.
