1 COMPUTER SCIENCE 349A Handout Number 33 NUMERICAL DIFFERENTIATION FORMULAS USING TAYLOR'S THEOREM (Chapter 4, page 85 in 5 th ed. or page 90 in 6 th ed. and Chapter 23, page 632 in 5 th ed. and page 653 in 6 th ed.) In Chapter 4, Taylor’s Theorem was used to derive a numerical differentiation formula that was used to approximate a derivative in a mathematical model that was developed to determine the terminal velocity of a free-falling body (a parachutist). Recall Taylor's Theorem (with 2 = n ): ) ( ! 3 ) ( ) ( ! 2 ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 1 3 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 ξ f x x x f x x x f x x x f x f + + + = or (1) ) ( 6 ) ( 2 ) ( ) ( ) ( 1 3 0 2 0 0 0 ξ f h x f h x f h x f h x f + + + = + where 0 x x h = (and thus h x x + = 0 ) and 1 ξ lies between 0 x and h x x + = 0 . Solving for ) ( 0 x f from (1) gives ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 0 0 0 h O h x f h x f x f + + = . That is, h x f h x f x f ) ( ) ( ) ( 0 0 0 + with a truncation error that is ) ( h O ; see page 85 of the 5 th ed. or page 90 of the 6 th ed. This is called the forward difference approximation to ) ( 0 x f .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
