Unformatted text preview: 18.085 Problem Set 2 Robert Yi February 17, 2011 Section 1.1: 12, 26. Section 1.2: 14. Section 1.3: 8, 10. Section 1.4: 7, 8, 12. Section 1.5: 2, 13, 23, 29 Section 1.1 12. Carry out elimination on the 4 by 4 circulant matrix C 4 to reach an upper triangular U (or try [ L,U ] = lu ( C ) in MATLAB). Two points to notice: The last entry of U is because C is singular. The last column of U has new nonzeros. Explain why this fill-in happens. Entering in the code [ L,U ] = lu ( C ) in MATLAB gives C = [ 2 -1 0 -1 ; -1 2 -1 0 ; 0 -1 2 -1; -1 0 -1 2 ] C = 2-1-1-1 2-1-1 2-1-1-1 2 >> [L, U]=lu(C) L = 1.0000-0.5000 1.0000-0.6667 1.0000-0.5000-0.3333-1.0000 1.0000 U = 2.0000-1.0000-1.0000 1.5000-1.0000-0.5000 1.3333-1.3333 0.0000 U is our upper triangular matrix, achieved via row reduction. The last entry of U is 0 (and hence the entire row) because C is singular. To preserve singularity, the fill-in must occur to make the row still add to one. 1 26. For which vectors v is toeplitz ( v ) a circulant matrx (cyclic diagonals)? Lets write the form of a generic circulant n by n matrix. We get For an n by n matrix, we have n 1 n 2 n 3 ... n n n n n 1 n n- 1 n n- 1 n n . . . n n- 2 . . . . . . n 2 n 3 ... n 1 But for a toeplitz matrix, we need this to be symmetric. So our restriction is n 2 = n n , n 3 = n n- 1 , n 4 = n n- 2 , etc. Or in other words, aside from the first entry of vector v , which has no restriction, the rest of the vector must be symmetric about its middle term (or lack thereof). E.g. in the vector [2- 10- 1], the vector, aside from the first entry 2, is symmetric about 0, the center of the remaining vector. Section 1.2 14 Part (a). Solve- u 00 = 12 x 2 with free-fixed conditions u (0) = 0 and u (1) = 0 . The complete solution involves integrating f ( x ) = 12 x 2 twice, plus Cx + D . Solving this without finite differences, but directly gives us- u 00 = 12 x 2 u =- 4 x 3 + C, and u (0) = 0 = C u =- x 4 + D, and u (1) = 0 =- 1 + D D = 1 u =- x 4 + 1 Part (b). With h = 1 n +1 and n = 3 , 7 , 15 , compute the discrete u 1 ,...,u n using T n : u i +1- 2 u i + u i- 1 h 2 = 12( ih ) 2 with u = 0 and u n +1 = 0 Compare u i with the exact answer at the center point x = ih = 1 / 2 . Is the error proportional to h or h 2 ? The MATLAB code for constructing matrix T and vector v , and solving for u is n=3; h=1/(n+1); Tn = toeplitz([2 -1 zeros(1,n-2)]); Tn(1,1) = 1; v=[1:n]; for i=1:n; v(i) = 12*(v(i)*h)^2; end u=(Tn/(h^2))\v 2 For n = 3, the output from MATLAB is: u = 0.9375 0.8906 0.6563 For x = ih = 1 / 2, or i = 1 / 2 1 / 4 = 2,...
