Chapter 2, § 2.6: The Euler Method #2 In addition to the two step sizes for h listed, also try to get to the endpoint in just one step: h = 0 . 2. Comment on the quality of the three numerical approximations for y (0 . 2): which do you expect to be best? Chapter 6, § 6.1: The Improved Euler Method #11 Integrate only to x = 0 . 2 in each case. [Hint: For the analytic solution, let u ( x ) = x + y 1 and derive a separable equation for u ( x ), recalling that R du 1+ u 2 = arctan u .] Chapter 6, § 6.2: The RungeKutta Method #1 Integrate only to x = 0 . 2. Chapter 6: Supplementary Problems (a) Consider Euler’s method for y = Ay , y ( x ) = y , where A is a constant, and show that y n = y (1 + Ah ) n . Show that, in the limit as h → 0, the solution of the Euler difference equation approaches the solution of the continuous problem from which it is derived.equation approaches the solution of the continuous problem from which it is derived....
