Note: This semester we'll be using a new text, the Schaum's Outline on Numerical Analysis. You may look at the old class page, but be warned that the contents could change dramatically!

- HW Assigned Aug 30, 2006 (Due on Monday, Sep 4)
- Homework 1 Solutions
- HW Assigned Sep 4 (Due Sep 8)
- Homework 2 Solutions
- Homework 3: We're doing these in-class on 9/13, 9/15 and 9/18
- Homework 4 (to turn in): Exercises on Pages 5,6, 9, 10 of ``The Interpolation Problem''. (Due Friday, 9/29)
- Homework 5 (to turn in Friday, Oct 20) (Note that this was handed out as Homework 4 instead of 5).
- Homework 6: Problems 5.2, 1, 2, 3, 7, 10. Computer problems 5.2.6, 5.2.7 (Due Monday, Oct 30)
- Homework 6 Solutions
- Script File for the last Problem
- M-file for Composite Trapezoidal Rule
- M-file for Composite Simpson's Rule
- Homework 7 (Chapter 6, Section 1)

- Floating Point Computations
- Rates of Convergence. Contains exercises for Homework Set 3. (Sep 11)
- Notes on Error Analysis. Contains exercises for Homework Set 3. (Sep 13)
- The Interpolation Problem (updated 9/26 to include 10 pages. Chebyshev polys were taken to the document below).
- Chebyshev's Theorem
- Cubic Splines (Oct 6 2005)
- Differentiation and Integration: These are from the draft notes that say "Chapter 5"

- An Intro to Matlab
- M-file for Bisection: bisect.m
- M-file for Fixed Point Iteration: fixpt.m
- An M-file for Newton's Method in the Complex Plane. The function is a generic cubic, z^3+az+b. The a, b values can be changed in the code. To see the nice picture, just download the file and run it in Matlab.
- M-file for the Wilkinson Polynomial: wilkpoly.m
- M-file for computing the Lagrange Polynomial: lagrange.m
- Files for Newton's Divided Differences:
- Files for the Animated Pendulum: If you download the following, just run the main script file: PendScript. It will call the other functions.
- Main Script File: PendScript.m
- Animation function: animPend.m
- The Pendulum ODE function: Pend1.m
- Improved Euler Method: ImpEulerVec.m
- File for animating the double pendulum. To use this, obtain
the numerical solution, vector t and matrix y, then in Matlab
type: animDoublePend(t,y). The lengths of the rods are assumed
to be 1, and g=9.8.

Animation File: animDoublePend.m

- Files for the Tacoma Narrows Bridge Example:
