Dept. of Materials Science & Engineering Bill Knowlton Extra Credit Mathematical operators: An operator is a symbol that tells you to do something to whatever follows the symbol. Typically the operator will have a hat or caret symbol,^, over it. An example of an operator is the following: ˆ d A dx = The operation it performs is the derivative with respect to x. If we us it to operate on the function: f(x) = x , then: ˆ () 1 dd A fx x dx dx == = Pretty simple. Operators can also be complex. For instance, we can have the following: ˆ x Pi x =− = For the function: ikx f xe = then: ˆ ikx ikx x P f x i f x ii ke ke x −− = = 1. Your assignment is the following. I will give you a list of operators and a list of functions. I want you to use each operator and operate on each and every function . You will do so using Mathematica. Please use the Style Sheet ArticleModern and use various Styles to allow ease of reading your work.
