MATH-UA.0252 (NYU Courant) Spring 2017: Numerical Analysis Assignment 1 (due Feb. 9, 2017) Homework submission. Homework assignments must be submitted in the class on the due date. If you cannot attend the class, please send your solution per email as a single PDF before class. Please hand in cleanly handwritten or typed (preferably with L A T E X) homeworks. If you are required to hand in code or code listings, this will explicitly be stated on that homework assignment. Collaboration. NYU’s integrity policies will be enforced. You are encouraged to discuss the problems with other students in person (or on Piazza). However, you must write (i.e., type) every line of code yourself and also write up your solutions independently. Copying of any portion of someone else’s solution/code or allowing others to copy your solution/code is considered cheating. Plotting and formatting. Plot figures carefully and think about what you want to illustrate with a plot. Choose proper ranges and scales ( semilogx, semilogy, loglog ), always label axes, and give meaningful titles. Sometimes, using a table can be useful, but never submit pages of numbers. Discuss what we can observe in and learn from a plot. If you do print numbers, use fprintf to format the output nicely. Use format compact and other format commands to control how MATLAB prints things. When you create figures using MATLAB (or Python/Octave), please try to export them in a vector graphics format (.eps, .pdf, .dxf)
