3. 24: Population abundance of blowflies under controlled laboratory conditions. A real valued function f is periodic if there is a real number T > 0 such that f (x) = f (x + T ) Periodic Function for all x. The smallest possible value of T is called the period of f . The amplitude (if it exists) of a periodic function is half of the difference between its largest and smallest values. Example 6. 24. Solution. A quick examination of the CO2 data reveals that the time between peaks is approximately 12 months, so the period is a year.
