# Question: defining the periodicity of an unknown function

Hi,

Suppose you have an unknown function y(x)  that is 2*Pi periodic, i.e. (y(0) = y(2*Pi)). Is there a way to declare this in Maple? The reason I want to do this, is that if I integrate the derivative y'(x) of  this unknown function on [0,2*Pi]I would like Maple maple to be able to recognize that:

int(y'(x),x=0..2*Pi) =0

Thanks
