Problem of the Week:
Due Wednesday, Sept. 17
Estimating Solutions to Parametric Differential Equations.
Read problem 12 on page 597 of Stewart. Do parts a and b.
Read pages 971-2 on Euler's method together with materials from Flashman
an Euler's method (Math 109 or Math 110).
Suppose x(0)=100 and y(0)=10 in problem 12. Estimate x(4) and y(4) using
Euler's method with n=4 with the following choices for the constants
a,b,k, and r. In each case discuss the quality of your estimate and the
relation of these to part a and b ot the problem.
(i) a = b = 1, k = 2, r = .5 ; (ii) a=.2 , b=.5, k=r=1.
