Solution 1 : Using Orthogonality of Chebyshev Polynomial: Expansion of f (x) in Chebyshev orthogonal polynomials gives f (x) g167g3g51 1 (x) = a T (x) + a 1 T 1 (x) Where T (x) = 1 and T 1 (x) = x ME – 510 NUMERICAL METHODS FOR ME II g51g85g82g73g17g3g39g85g17g3g41g68g85g88g78g3g36g85g213g81g111 Fall 2007 There are two ways to determine the coefficients a , and a 1 . The exact procedure is to use the orthogonality property of the Chebyshev functions and evaluate the appropriate integrals. The first step is to re-define the independent variable, x, such that the range of interest is the range of orthogonality of the Chebyshev functions: 1- x 2- 1- 1- x 2 a- b a- b- x 2 z g32 g32 g32 2 1 z x g14 g32 e F(z)...
