ChBE 2120 Homework 7, Spring 2011 Due: Friday, March 11, at 8:05 AM 1) We will begin by continuing where Homework 6 left off. For the following function: ݃ሺݔ,ݕሻൌെ4ݔ ൅2ݔݕെݕ You already have a Matlab function that represents the function above, named hw6funcG_myGtAccountId.m . a) Begin by re-making the contour plot from the last assignment. In a script named hw7_myGtAccountId.m script, plot the function using the Matlab command contour, for -2 < x < 2 and -2 < y < 2. You will need this figure later. Hint: use the following snippet of code as the basis for your code to make your contour plot: [xMesh,yMesh] = meshgrid(xRange,yRange); gMat = hw6funcG_mstyczynski6(xMesh,yMesh); [c,h] = contour(xMesh,yMesh,gMat,10); clabel(c,h) b) In your hw7 script, perform two full steps of the univariate search method (discussed on Wednesday) to find the value of (x,y) that maximizes this function, and the function’s value at that (x,y). The univariate method works by searching in one direction at a time: you hold one variable constant and optimize on the other. We will do this in MATLAB by “parameterizing” our function. (For more details on this, search for “Passing extra parameters” in the Matlab interactive help.) What we will do is first choose an initial x value: 1.2. We will optimize our function for y, with x set to 1.2, and use our Golden Section search from the previous assignment with the limits equal to [-2, 2]. We do this by parameterizing our function… we cannot pass @hw6funcG_myGtAccountId to our Golden Section function, because the Golden Section expects only one variable in the function, and we have two. So, parameterizing means passing the following to the Golden Section search as the “function”: @(y) hw6funcG_mstyczynski6(initialX,y) This means that we are passing a function handle (signified by the @ sign), but it will only be a function in one variable (indicated by the y in parentheses after the @ sign). The function we are passing is based on our hw6 function, but using a constant value in the x location (in our case, set to initialX, which we would have defined in a prior line as equal to 1.2). So, in total, our line of code would look something like this: firstY = goldenSectionMax_mstyczynski6(@(y) . .. hw6funcG_mstyczynski6(initialX,y),-2,2)
