Sorting Number: ______________________ Fall 2009 2 b) The table below provides numerical integration results for this problem obtained by using the trapezoidal rule with step sizes of 1, 2, and 4 across the entire interval [-1, 3]: Number of Segments Step size h Trapezoid Result 1 4 22 2 2 13.8 4 1 11 Using the initial trapezoid results from the table above, re-solve this integral by implementing Romberg integration as many times as necessary to obtain the highest accuracy integral possible. Record your Romberg results in the table above. Solution: a) Apply Simpson’s 1/3 rule to points 1, 2, 3 with step size 0.5 and to points 3, 4, 5 (or 4, 5, 6) with step size 1. Then apply Trapezoidal rule to points 5 and 6 (or 3 and 4) to complete the integral. First Simpson = (0.5/3)*(8.0+4*3.7+2.0) = 4.1333 Second Simpson = (1/3)*(2.0+4*1.4+2.1) = 3.2333 Trapezoid = (1/2)*(2.1+3.0) = 2.5500 Total = 9.9167 or First Simpson = (0.5/3)*(8.0+4*3.7+2.0) = 4.1333 Trapezoid = (1/2)*(2.0+1.4) = 1.7000 Second Simpson = (1/3)*(1.4 +4*2.1+3.0) = 4.2667 Total = 10.1000 b) Let I4 be the trapezoid results using a step size of 4, I2 the trapezoid results using a step size of 2, and I1 the trapezoid results using a step size of 1.
