The desired higher-order approximation is the value of 0 the interpolating polynomial at = 0, i.e., q ( 0). The meaning of the superscript 0 will become clear shortly. The Aitken-Neville algorithm provides a simple way of generating the necessary approximations in the form a recurrence relation where higher-order solutions are obtained i from lower-order ones.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
