## Evenness

A function f is called "*even*" if it holds that:

The integral over the range (-a,a) of an even function f is:

## Oddness

A function f is called "*odd*" if it holds that:

The integral over the range (-a,a) of an odd function f is 0:

## Even and odd

For a function f to be both even and odd, it has to hold that:

Which means:

The constant function returning zero is the only function that is both even and odd.

## Neither

It is possible for a function to be neither even nor odd, but:

## Splitting functions

Any function f can be split into one even part and one odd part:

The first outer term is even, the second outer term is odd.
