1. (25 pts) Consider data points taken from f ( x ) = e 2 x at n evenly spaced points: - 1 = x 1 < x 2 < . . . < x n = 0 . Let p ( x ) be the piecewise linear polynomial interpolating these points. (a) Use calculus to show the bound in [

Unformatted text preview: -2 , 0]: | f ( x )-p ( x ) | ≤ h 2 2 , where h = x i +1-x i . 2 (b) Use this bound to find a condition on n that will ensure | f ( x )-p ( x ) | ≤ 10-4 . 3 2. (25 pts) Let F ( x ) = Z x x f ( x ) dx. Use Taylor series to find the leading term of the absolute error of Midpoint rule in one subinterval: ± ± ± ± ± Z x + h x f ( x ) dx-hf ( x + h/ 2) ± ± ± ± ± . 4...
