Homework #2:
Intro to MATLAB
1.
[4 points] Write the script or
function mfile to compute , where indicates the summation from
n=1 to M and run the case M=10.
(a) Using
for/end,
but not array operators or
sum
. This is the standard.
(b) Using array operators and
sum
, but not
for/end
. [Hint: Create an array of ratios
,
using the array operator.]
Submit the codes and the numerical results.
2
. [3 points] Write a function mfile that calculates the roots of . Its synopsis is QuadRoots(a,b,c),
where a, b and c are allowed to be vectors. First, use the example below to get the results (and
show them), then give your own input of coefficient vectors a, b and c and perform the
calculation and show the results. Finally, check your results with the
roots
command, which is a
builtin MATLAB command to do the job.
For example
>> a=[1,2,3];
>> b=[2,3,4];
>> c=[3,4,5];
will produce the coefficients of three quadratic polynomials:
When you issue the command
