DALHOUSIE UNIVERSITY (Department of Engineering Mathematics) AM-3052 Numerical Methods and Linear Algebra ASSIGNMENT #1 Due: Sept 22, 2009 1. Consider the function ) sin( ) ( 2 x e x f x = : (a) Find the Taylor series expansion of ) ( x f about 0 = x to ) ( 6 x O . (b) Graph the above function in (a) along with their Taylor approximations (different plot for one term, two terms etc ) on the same set of axis using Matlab on the interval 2 0 x and 10 0 y . 2. Write a Matlab program that will use the Taylor series expansion to calculate the value of ) 1 . 0 ( f where ) sin( ) ( 2 x x x f = accurate to 8 decimal places.
