Using Hermite interpolation to build a transition function
Suppose we have a quantity K(t) that we want to model. We know the value of K for
early time, for later time K, but we dont know exactly how the transition occurs. Ther

Homework Set 1 ANSWER KEY
1. 3.04569433 104 .
2. We want < 1022 . Since = 2t , we get t ln 2 > 22 ln 10, so t > 73.08; use t = 74
digits. We want the largest machine number to be greater than 10300 . The l

Homework Set 2 ANSWER KEY
1. Since x = .9750, then x2 = .9506 in the machine. To get x3 , you multiply x together 3
times. The first product gives .9506; multiplying this by x gives .926835 which is conver
