Unformatted text preview: x1 < < x = bg converges to a higher order than it does globally. N Now, let us resume the search for special collocation points. Consider the case when = x , j = 0 1 : : : N , so that g(x x) is smooth and expand it in a Taylor's series on the subinterval (x 1 x ) to obtain g(x x) = g(x x 1 2 ) + g (x x 1 2 )(x ; x 1 2 ) + 1 g (x )(x ; x 1 2 )2 2 2 (x 1 x ): j j i; j j i i; = x j i; = i; = xx i j i; i i; = i Substitute this expansion into (9.1.18a) to obtain e (x ) = i Z xi j ;1 xi (x ; 1)(x ; 2) g(x x 1 2 ) + g (x x 1 2 )(x ; x 1 2 )+ i i j i; = x j i; = 1 g (x )(x ; x )2]dx: 12 2 The choice of 1 and 2 is now clear.
