MAE 107 Assignment 2 Due Thursday, 7 Oct., 2010 Problems to hand in (Not all problems may be graded.) 1. Epperson, Section 2.1 problems: 1d, 4 (for 1d), 9 (for 1d). 2. Epperson, Section 2.2 problems: 2c, 3c, 5 ,8, 9 (for 3c), 14b. 3. Epperson, Section 2.3 problems: 2, 10a. 4. You need to compute sin( x ) for x [0 ] on a low-level processor/compiler. Only the operations + , - , × , ÷ are available. You’ve been told that it only has “roughly 6 digits” of accuracy. Your coworker has written the following pseudo-code (essentially MATLAB). input x; x 3 = x * x * x ; x 5 = x 3 * x * x ; x 7 = x 5 * x * x ; x 9 = x 7 * x * x ; x 11 = x 9 * x * x ; f 3 = 6; f 5 = 5 * 4 * f 3; f 7 = 7 * 6 * f 5; f 9 = 9 * 8 * f 7; f 11 = 11 * 10 * f 9; sinx = x - x 3 /f 3 + x 5 /f 5 - x 7 /f 7 + x 9 /f 9 - x 11 /f 11; This code will run many, many times, and so needs to be fast. Us- ing what you know about Taylor series and Horner’s Method, can you improve on your coworker’s code? (Do not go so far as table look ups and/or if/then logic.) Indicate what you would do. How many additions and multiplications are needed? Note the update to 6 digits! 5. Consider f ( x ) = e x cos(

Unformatted text preview: x ). Suppose we want to compute the derivative 1 at x = 0 using finite differences. Let D 1 ( h ) = f ( x + h )-f ( x ) h and D 2 ( h ) = f ( x + h )-f ( x-h ) 2 h . Let D 3 ( h ) denote the method from Problem 8 of Section 2.2 in the text-book. Compute all of these for h = 10-j , for j ∈ { 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 } . Let e k ( h ) denote the error in D k ( h ) for k ∈ { 1 , 2 , 3 } . Plot log 10 ( e k ( h )) versus log 10 ( h ) for k ∈ { 1 , 2 , 3 } . What does the slope tell you? Can you say anything about the minimums of the curves? All the above problems (if graded) are worth 5 points each, except the final two problems which are worth 10 points each.
