I want to define an inner product function such as

(here mylist is a specified list and L is a specified constant)

innerprod[f_, g_] = Sum[f[k]Conjugate[g[k]]Part[mylist,k],{k,1,L}]

This works fine but now I need to apply it in a situation where f is a
function of 2 variables while g is a function of only one variable,
i.e. I want to compute something like the inner product of f[2,n] and

Of course, I want the ability to freely vary the first input of f.

I have accomplish this before rather easily but I'm presently drawing
a blank.

Thanks for your help.
