Ma 449: Numerical Applied Mathematics
Reading and Homework Assignment 9
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 7, Sections 7.3 through 7.5 of the text.
Do Exercise 4 of Section 7.3, p.390.
Do Algorithm 3 of Section 7.3, p.392.
Do Algorithm 1(c) of Section 7.4, p.399.
Do Exercise 9 of Section 7.5, p.406. [Note: an odd function actually
satisfies f(-x)= -f(x), instead of what is written in the hint.]
Problem H09.1. Write a program to compute the integral of a function
using adaptive quadrature with the composite trapezoidal rule. Let
the desired accuracy be specified by a parameter in the program.
