THESE SHEETS ARE TO BE HANDED IN WITH YOUR EXAM. Page 1 of 5 Please go on to the next page. . . Math 104A Final Exam Fall 2010 1. (10 points) Consider the following iterative method to solve f ( x ) = 0: x n +1 = g ( x n ) , where g ( x ) = x- f ( x ) f ( x )- 1 2 f 00 ( x ) f ( x ) f ( x ) f ( x ) 2 . (a) (5 points) Does the method converge? What is the rate of convergence of the method? Justify your answer. (b) (5 points) Find, using this method, and to within 10- 10 , the solution to e- x = sin( x ) located in the interval [0 , 1]. 2. (10 points) Find the coefficients a , a 1 , a 2 , and a 3 , such that a f ( x- 2 h ) + a 1 f ( x- h ) + a 2 f ( x + h ) + a 3 f ( x + 2 h ) = f ( x ) + O ( h 4 ) for any smooth function f . Check your answer with f ( x ) = e x cos( x ) at x = 0. Use several values of h and show numerically that the degree of accuracy of the formula that you have...
