Trigonometric polynomial rings and their factorization properties

... Analogously, we can define a real trigonometric polynomial and its degree. The set of all trigonometric polynomials form a ring, in fact an integral domain. In particular, if we restrict the coefficients to be real even then we get an integral domain. The degree of a non-zero trigonometric polynomia ...
