Problem 1 (25 points) Suppose B R n × n is a symmetric positive definite tridiagonal matrix of the form B = D r L L T D b where n = 2 k , D r and D b are diagonal matrices of order n/ 2, L is a lower triangular matrix with nonzeros restricted to its main diagonal and its first subdiagonal, and U is upper triangular matrix with nonzeros restricted to its main diagonal and its first superdiagonal. Assume that Ax = b can be solved using Jacobi’s method, i.e., the iteration converges acceptably fast. Partition each iterate x i into the top half and bottom half, i.e., x i = x ( top ) i x ( bot ) i 1.a . Assume an initial guess x 0 is given and identify what information, i.e., the pieces

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
