en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourier_series

Can we extend Fourier transform equations to all trigonometric functions ?.

viz Tan, Cot, Sec, Cosec other than Sin, Cosine

Can the Fourier series be applied to other trigonometric  functions ?.

viz Tan, Cot, Sec, Cosec other than Sin, Cosine

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Trig identities reveal that the list you site are merely variants of a basic sine or cosine wave function when it comes to a transform.  So, they can all be computed under the umbrella of the basic transform equations, I believe.

So long as the function is periodic it can be transformed, surely.
