Ma 449: Numerical Applied Mathematics Reading and Homework Assignment 1 Prof. Wickerhauser You are encouraged to collaborate on homework, and to work additional exercises from the indicated problem sections, although the homework grade will be based only on the exercises listed below. Please return your solutions to me by the end of class. LATE HOMEWORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Check your solutions to problems marked with an asterisk(*) against the values in the textbook's Answers section, pp.646--672. Read Chapter 1, Sections 1.1--1.3, of the text. Do Exercise 9(a*,b) of Section 1.1, p.12. Do Exercise 11(b*,c) of Section 1.1, p.12. Do Exercise 12(a) of Section 1.1, p.13. Do Exercise 2(c*,d) of Section 1.2, p.23. Do Exercise 3(a*,b) of Section 1.2, p.23. Do Exercise 1(a*,c) of Section 1.3, p.37. Do Exercise 5(c*,d) of Section 1.3, p.37. Do Exercise 11 of Section 1.3, p.38. [Note: there are two errors in this section: --p.25, example 1.15, (3a) approximates x to THREE significant digits. --p.647, answer to Ex.1(a) approximates x to FIVE significant digits. The formula in Def.1.8, p.25 is correct, but is misapplied in the text example and the exercise.] Do Algorithm 2(a,b,c) of Section 1.3, p.39. [Note: the third edition of the text has a misprint at part (b). The correct formula should be p(n) = (3/2)*p(n-1) - (1/2)*p(n-2) ]
