Unformatted text preview: THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY PURE MATHEMATICS Linear Mathematics 2010 Tutorial 4 Solutions 1. You are given the following data points: x 1 0 1 2 y 4 1 2 1 Construct a Lagrange basis { p , p 1 , p 2 , p 3 } of P 3 using the x values from the data set. Hence find the unique cubic polynomial p ( x ) that fits the data exactly. Estimate the value of y when x = 1 2 . Solution By definition, the vectors in the Lagrange basis of P 3 are as follows: p ( x ) = x ( x 1)( x 2) ( 1)( 1 1)( 1 2) = 1 6 x ( x 1)( x 2) , p 1 ( x ) = ( x + 1)( x 1)( x 2) (0 + 1)(0 1)(0 2) = 1 2 ( x + 1)( x 1)( x 2) , p 2 ( x ) = ( x + 1)( x 0)( x 2) (1 + 1)(1 0)(1 2) = 1 2 x ( x + 1)( x 2) , p 3 ( x ) = ( x + 1)( x 0)( x 1) (2 + 1)(2 0)(2 1) = 1 6 x ( x + 1)( x 1) Hence the polynomial that fits the data is p ( x ) = 4 p ( x ) + p 1 ( x ) 2 p 2 ( x ) + p 3 ( x ) . This simplifies to p ( x ) = x 3 4 x + 1 . When x = 1 2 we estimate that y p ( 1 2 ) = 1 8 2 + 1 = 7 8 = . 875 . 2. The matrix J is a reduced row echelon form of the matrix A .

Solution a ) The first three columns of J are a basis for the column space of J , so the first three columns of A are a basis for the column space of A . So a basis for the column space of A is braceleftBiggparenleftBigg 1 2 4 8 7 parenrightBigg , parenleftBigg 2 5 10 19 17 parenrightBigg , parenleftBigg 3 7 9 19 parenrightBiggbracerightBigg .

As Null( A ) = Null( J ) , looking at J we see that x 4 and x 5 are free variables and that x 1 = 40 x 4 29 x 5 , x 2 = 18 x 4 + 12 x 5 , x 3 = 4 x 4 x 5 . Hence x = parenleftBigg x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 parenrightBigg = parenleftBigg- 40 x 4- 29 x 5 18 x 4 +12 x 5- 4 x 4- x 5 x 4 x 5 parenrightBigg = x 4 parenleftBigg- 40 18- 4 1 parenrightBigg + x 5 parenleftBigg- 29 12- 1 1 parenrightBigg , for all x 4 , x 5 R .
