The Birkhoff difference sum

We see here the graphs of fn(x) for various n. We introduced the difference sum
fn(x) = S[x qn](pn+1/qn+1) - S[x qn](pn/qn)
in our paper. The pn/qn are the convergents of the rotation number defined by the continued fraction expansion. In our case they are given by Fibonacci numbers. The pictures below show the graphs of the function fn for various n.
