CS 510 Homework - due 9/28/10 I. (i) Find the Taylor polynomial which matches f ( x )= x and its first two derivatives at x =4 . (ii) Suppose the polynomial in (i) is used to approximate 5. What is the resulting approximation? Bound its absolute error using the error formula for Taylor polynomials. II. Consider the nonlinear equation f ( x x 3 - x - 11 = 0. (i) Show that f ( x ) has a unique root x [2 , 3]. (ii) How many iterations of the bisection method are needed to compute x to within absolute error 10 - 6 starting with [ a, b ]=[2 , 3]? (iii) Compute the first three iterates of regula falsi with [2 , 3] as the initial interval. III. Consider the following fixed point reformulations of the equation f ( x )=0inII: (a) x = g 1 ( x x 3 - 11 (b) x = g 2 ( x )=( x + 11) 1 / 3 (c) x = g 3 ( x x 4 - x 2 11 (d) x = g 4 ( x x - x 3 - x - 11 3 x 2 - 1 (Newton’s method) (i) For which of the above g ’s will the corresponding fixed point iteration be locally convergent to x ? Explain. (ii) Show that x k +1 = g 2 ( x k ) will converge to x for all x 0 [2 , 3].
