Hi,
I do not understand fully what you want to do. But, to make a function
periodic is a piece of cake. E.g. if we want some function f to have
period L we may define an operator:
makeper[f_,L_]= f[Mod[#,L]]&
Here is an example. We want a sine with periode: 1:
sin1= makeper[Sin,1]
you may plot the result: Plot[sin1[x],{x,0,3}]
Of course, when you make a function periodic with the wrong periode, you
will get y discontinuity.
hope this helps, Daniel
