Assignment 2 the 1.

Assignment 2 (Be sure to observe the rules about handing in homework) x1 x 2 x3 3 1. Solve: 6 x1 2 x 2 2 x3 2 3x1 4 x 2 x3 1 with (a) (10 pts) naive Gauss elimination (no pivoting), (b) (10 pts) Gauss with partial pivoting *You need to show all of the steps manually. MATLAB code alone is not acceptable. 2. (a) (10 pts) Solve the following system of equations by LU decomposition without pivoting. Show explicitly the L and U matrices found during the process. 8 x1 4 x 2 x3 11 2 x1 3x 2 x3 4 2 x1 x 2 6 x3 7 (b) (15 pts) Determine the matrix inverse in three steps (column by column) as taught in class. Check your results by verifying that [A][A]-1 = [I]. You may use MATLAB to verify your results. 3. Use least-squares regression to fit a straight line to x y 1 1 2 1.5 3 2 4 3 5 4 6 5 7 8 8 10 9 13 (a) (7 pts) Along with the slope and intercept, compute Sr, St, and the correlation coefficient r as described in lecture slides (slide#9 in Chap-17e.ppt). Plot the data and the straight line. Assess the fit. (b) (8 pts) Recompute (a), but use polynomial regression to fit a parabola to the data. Compare the results with those of (a) using the correlation coefficient r. Which one (a line or a parabola?) does provide a better fit? 4. Given the data x y 5 17 10 24 15 31 20 33 25 37 30 37 35 40 40 40 45 42 50 41 use least-squares regression to fit (a) (10 pts) a power equation, and (b) (10 pts) a saturation-growth-rate equation. Plot the data along with all the curves. Is any one of the curves superior? If so, justify by using the correlation coefficient r. (* Note that correlation coefficient r must be calculated using the original data and the fitted non-linear function. In other words, do not use the transformed values for the calculation of the correlation coefficient *) (*Important Note: Do not use package programs to find the answers. However, you may use the MATLAB programs to check the correctness of your answers.*) 5. (10 pts) Given the data x f (x) 1 3 2 6 3 19 5 99 7 291 8 444 Calculate f(4) using Newton’s interpolating polynomials of order 1 through 4, i.e. you will calculate f1(4), f2(4), f3(4), and f4(4). In each case, choose your base points to attain good accuracy (Hint: around the point of interest, i.e. 4). What do your results indicate regarding the order of the polynomial used to generate the data in the table? 6. (10 pts) Repeat the question above (Q.5) using Lagrange polynomials of order 1 through 3.
