COMPUTER SCIENCE 50100 Computing for Science and Engineering FALL 2014 ASSIGNMENT # 3 (35 points) September 26 Announcement There is an error in the notes. The line axes().set_aspect(’equal’, ’datalim’) in Section 3.3 should read axes().set_aspect(’equal’) Due Wednesday, October 15 at 11:30 am This assignment covers Sections 3.1–4.2.2 of the class notes. Rule: For this assignment, the functions you define should use no global variables and have no side effects (except for output to a file in plot ratio ). 0. (Required) Please state whether you are using Python 2.7 or 3.4 and which operating system you are using. This will assist in the grading of your solutions. 1. (7 points) Write a Python module detm.py that defines a function logdet(A) that computes the natural logarithm of the determinant of A using the recurrence log det A = log α + log det( D - ( c/α ) b T ) where A = α b T c D is a (1 , n - 1) by (1 , n - 1) partitioning of A , except that log det( A ) = log A if A is 1 by 1. (This formula is suitable only for a restricted class of matrices that includes symmetric positive definite matrices.) #!/usr/bin/env python # detm.py import numpy as np def logdet(A): ...
