Homework 5 – Math 104A, Fall 2010 Due on Tuesday, November 9th, 2010 1. Given x i , i = 0 , 1 , . . . , n , consider the Lagrange polynomials L n,j for j = 0 , 1 , . . . , n . Prove that n X j =0 L n,j ( x ) = 1 for all x R . 2. The following data is taken from a polynomial. What is its degree? x -2 -1 0 1 2 3 p ( x ) -5 1 1 1 7 25 3. Consider the function e x on [0 , b ] and its approximation by an interpo- lating polynomial. For n 1, let h = b/n , x j = jh , j = 0 , 1 , . . . , n ; and let p n ( x ) be the n th degree polynomial interpolating e x on the nodes x 0 , . . . , x n . Prove that max 0 x b | e x - p n ( x ) | → 0 as n → ∞ . 4. Let x 0 , x 1 , . . . , x n be distinct real points, and consider the following interpolation problem. Choose a function P n ( x ) = n X j =0 c j e jx such that P n ( x i ) = y i , i = 0 , 1 , . . . , n, with the { y j } given data. Show there is a unique choice of c 0 , c 1 , . . . , c n . 5. Show there is a unique cubic polynomial
