# Question: Extracting Coefficients from a Fourier Series

Greetings,

I have a finite Fourier series of the form, Asin(x)cos(z) + Bsin(2x)cos(z) + Csin(3x)cos(2z) +... I would like to be able to extract the coefficients, A,B,C etc., that correspond to a specific mode. I have tried using the coeff and coeffs functions. They work for a one-dimensional Fourier series (i.e. if S= Asin(x) + Bsin(2x) + Csin(3x); is my series, then coeff(S,sin(2x) returns B). I cannot however get this to work for the 2-D case. Any suggestions?

Best,

Jeilerts
