Gibbs Phenomenon

I drew the Gibbs Phenomenon in CS 371. Check the notes here in page 60. \begin{figure}[h!] \centering \begin{tikzpicture} \begin{axis}[ xmin = -4, xmax = 4, ymin = -3, ymax = 3, domain = -3 : 3, xlabel = $x$, ylabel = $y$, axis x line = center, axis y line = center, every axis x label/.append style = {below}, every axis y label/.append style =...
