No condition is imposed upon $f$ -- neither differentiability nor continuity. Indeed, you can see that $f$ is not continuous. Thanks from eddybob123 June 21st, 2014, 07:46 AM   #22

So $A$-linearly independent means there are no $a_i \in A$ such that $\sum a_i \omega_i = 0$.

Meaning that $f(y) = c$ fits the easy question, but only if the $\omega_i$ can be found. I'm a bit stuck after $1$ and $\mathbb{i}$.

I'll spill the beans, seeing that you're almost nearly done : There is no triplet $\{\omega_1, \omega_2, \omega_3\}$ in $\Bbb C$ pairwise $\Bbb R$-linearly dependent, as $\Bbb R$ is spanned over $\Bbb C$ by $\{1, i\}$. Now try the harder question!

We can have any number of $\omega$ where $\omega_n$ is the square root of the $(n-1)$th prime, $\omega_1=1$.

And doesn't that mean there is no such triply periodic function $f$?

It's not so much the function that can't exists as the linearly independent $\omega_i$. I'm not sure that any more interesting fuunction would exist, even for the second question.

That $i$ was an index, not $\sqrt{-1}$. That post was looking at the second part of your question.

If you prefer
$$f(x) = c \qquad \omega_k = \sqrt{k} \qquad 1 \le k \le 3$$

I'm becoming certain that a constant function is the only type that can have multiple, linearly independent periods.
