Unformatted text preview: Homework 5 Solution 1. Consider the following function: f ( x ) = 1 + 4 x- 2 x 2 + cos x (a) [2pt] Find an maximum using three iterations of the Golden Section search with initial guesses x l =- 5 and x u = 5. (b) [2pt] Find an maximum using three iterations of quadratic interpolation with initial guesses x =- 5 , x 1 =- 2, and x 2 = 3. (c) [2pt] Find an maximum using three iterations of the Newtons- method with an initial value x = 5. Solution. (a) Golden Section Method Iteration 1:Given initial guesses x l =- 5 , x u = 5 d = 5- 1 2 ( x u- x l ) = 6 . 18 x 1 = x l + d =- 5 + 6 . 18 = 1 . 18 , x 2 = x u- d =- 1 . 18 f ( x 1 ) = 3 . 3161 , f ( x 2 ) =- 6 . 1239 f ( x 2 )is smaller,let x l = x 2 =- 1 . 18 , x 2 = x 1 = 1 . 18 Iteration 2: d = 5- 1 2 ( x u- x l ) = 3 . 8195 x 1 = x l + d = 2 . 6395 , f ( x 1 ) =- 3 . 2521 f ( x 1 )is smaller,let x u = x 1 = 2 . 6395 , x 1 = x 2 = 1 . 18 Iteration 3: d = 5- 1 2 ( x u- x l ) = 2 . 3606 x 2 = x u- d = 0 . 2789 f ( x 2 ) = f (0...
