Learning Objectives for Test #2 PGE 310 *Be able to write a MATLAB program for any of the numerical methods we have learned in this class. Also be able to use the “feval” command properly. Ch 6. Root finding of non-linear equations Identify situations where non-linear equations arise naturally in science and engineering Differentiate between “closed/bracketing” and “open” methods and the advantages/disadvantages between the two Solve for the root of a nonlinear equation using any of the following Bisection method false position method (Not in book!) fixed point iteration Newton-raphson Secant method Modified-secant Identify and describe the advantages, disadvantages, and pitfalls of each of the above methods Derive Newton’s method from a Taylor Series Calculate approximate relative error in an iterative scheme Describe and identify the convergence of each method (i.e. which are guaranteed to converge, which converge fastest, etc.) Ch 8.
