Homework 5 Foundations of Computational Math 1 Fall 2011 The solutions will be posted on Friday, 10/14/11 Problem 5.1 Consider the following numbers: 122.9572 457932 0.0014973 5.1.a . Express the numbers as Foating point numbers with β = 10 and t = 4 using rounding to even and using chopping. 5.1.b . Express the numbers as Foating point numbers with in single precision IEEE format using rounding to even. It is strongly recommended that you implement a program to do this rather than computing the representation manually. 5.1.c . Calculate the relative error for each number and verify it satis±es the bounds implied by the Foating point system used. Problem 5.2 Consider the function f ( x ) = 1 . 01 + x 1 . 01 - x 5.2.a . ²ind the absolute condition number for f ( x ). 5.2.b . ²ind the relative condition number for f ( x ). 5.2.c . Evaluate the condition numbers around x = 1. 5.2.d
