(b) Consider the equidistributed pointsxj=-1 +j(2/n) forj= 0, ..., n. Write a computercode that uses (a) to evaluate and plotL(n)(x) (evaluateL(n)(x) at a large number ofpoints ¯xto have a good plotting resolution, e.g. ¯xk=-1 +k(2/ne),k= 0, ..., newithne= 1000) forn= 4, 10, and 20. Estimate Λnfor these three values ofn.(c) Repeat (b) with the nodes given byxj= cos(n),j= 0, ..., n. Contrast the behavior ofL(n)(x) and Λnwith those corresponding to the equidistributed points in (b).3.(a) Implement the Barycentric Formula for evaluating the interpolating polynomial for arbi-
