Introduction Euler’s Method Improved Euler’s Method Improved Euler’s Method - Algorithm Example Improved Euler’s Method Error Order of Error Example: Improved Euler’s Method 5 Solution: Comparison of the numerical simulations It is very clear that the Improved Euler’s method does a substantially better job of tracking the actual solution The Improved Euler’s method requires only one additional function, f ( t, y ), evaluation for this improved accuracy At t = 1, the Euler’s method has a - 5 . 6% error from the actual solution At t = 1, the Improved Euler’s method has a - 0 . 19% error from the actual solution Joseph M.

    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.
