ChBE 2120 Homework 7 Due: October 15, 2010 at 11:00 PM 1) For the following function: ݂ሺݔሻൌݔlnݔ൅2ݔ ݁ ି௫ ݃ሺݔ,ݕሻൌെ4ݔ ൅2ݔݕെݕ a) Write a Matlab function that represents the function above. Name your function hw7funcF_myGtAccountId.m . The function declaration may look like: function f = hw7funcF_mstyczynski6(x) b) Plot the function for 0.01 x 2. (You can do this in a separate script, or in the script from part D below.) Save the figure as a png file, hw7part1plot_myGtAccountId.png c) Write a function that uses the golden section search to find the value of x that maximizes an arbitrary function. (This is the method we have gone over in class.) Name your function goldenSectionMax_myGtAccountId.m . This function should take as input a function handle for your function to be optimized, the lower bound of the interval containing a maximum, and the upper bound of the interval containing a maximum. For example, the declaration may look like: function maxVal = goldenSectionMax_mstyczynski6(optFunc,x_l,x_u) Implement your function exactly as we described in class: compare the values of f(x 2 ) and f(x 1 ), and eliminate a portion of your interval as appropriate. Continue until the width of your interval is no greater than 10 -6 , and return the midpoint of the interval as your estimate of the x that maximizes the function. Hint: is the value of d the same at every step, or does it change with every step? How is d defined? d) Now make a Matlab script called hw7part1_myGtAccountId.m that calls your goldenSection command in order to minimize your funcF function. In order to do this, you will need to submit an additional file, that you should name
