converge to 04 I (b) Suppose" g E 02 with 9(a) = a,g’(a) = 0. Show that the convergence of (1) is (at
least) locally quadratic. . ' * (c) By consideration of the function g(x) = x —— x3,a = 0, show that the condition
[g’(a)| < 1 is not neccessary for the convergence of ‘2. (30 points) For solving 3/ = f (x, y) consider the numerical method h h2 ,, yn+1 = yn + 5% + 34:14.1] + ﬁlyn — 21144.1]-

(b) Deﬁne the concept of absolute stability. That is, consider applying the method to the
~ case f (3:, y) = Ay with Real A < 0. Show that the region of absolute stability contains
the entire negative real axis of the complex hA plane. 3. (20 points) Consider the boundary value problem
