Unformatted text preview: MATH 128A, SUMMER 2009: HOMEWORK 7 SOLUTIONS (1) Lets use the notation w AB3 for the AdamsBashforth(3) predictors estimate of y i +1 , w AM2 for the AdamsMoulton(2) correctors estimate of y i +1 , and AB3 and AM2 for their respective truncation errors. From the textbook, we have the truncation error formulas AB3 = y i +1 w AB3 h = 3 8 y (4) ( AB3 ) h 3 , AB3 [ t i 2 ,t i +1 ] AM2 = y i +1 w AM2 h  1 24 y (4) ( AM2 ) h 3 , AM2 [ t i 1 ,t i +1 ] (Technically speaking, the equation in the second line is approximate: it gives the predictor corrector methods truncation error as that of the corrector step. The difference ends up being O ( h 4 ), and may be ignored.) Proceed by assuming that y (4) ( ) is approximately constant on the relevant interval. When we subtract the equations, the y i +1 terms cancel and were left with w AM2 w AB3 h 10 24 y (4) (?) h 3 The lefthand side is 1, so y (4) (?) h 3  24 / 10. Plugging back into the formula for10....
