The errors in the eigenvalue approximations. The error ratios are as follows: lambda j Mesh 1 vs. 2 Mesh 2 vs. 3 Mesh 3 vs. 4 j = 1 3.95e+00 3.98e+00 3.99e+00 j = 6 3.98e+00 3.98e+00 3.99e+00 j = 11 4.02e+00 4.00e+00 4.00e+00 j = 16 4.04e+00 4.01e+00 4.00e+00 j = 21 4.05e+00 4.01e+00 4.00e+00 Therefore, the error is reduced by a factor of 4 as the side of each triangle is reduced by a factor of 2, so the error is O ( h 2 ), as expected, but the larger the eigenvalue,
