# Homework 6

## Problem 1: Derive a method (20 points)

- Chapter 10, Exercise 2 (10 points)
- Chapter 10, Exercise 3 (10 points)

## Problem 2: An error study (10 points)

Complete chapter 10, Problem 6c.

## Problem 3: A new hire (15 points)

You have just been hired at Aperature Science Labs, one of the
premier institutes of numerical computing. One of their specialities
is evaluating numerical representations of complex phenomenon. You've
been brought on in a top-secret project that is going to study the
basics of numerical integration that underlie Aperature's advanced
simulations. Your goal: produce a report on the accuracy and computational
cost of evaluating
via numeric integration. Your report should contain a summary
recommendation on your findings with state-of-the-art methods to
evaluate this routine. It should include at least three different
methods; and some form of chart that your boss can present to the
weekly meeting.

## Problem 4: Sleepless nights (20 points)

- Chapter 11, Problem 3 (10 points)
- Chapter 11, Problem 8 (10 points)

## Problem 5: A choice! (15 points)

Please choose your own adventure! You only
need to do one of the following problems.

**Theory** Chapter 11, Problem 11 (You will have to read in the book about how
to show multi-step methods are convergent.)

**Experiment** Chapter 11, Problem 14. Here, you should use the version
of 4th order Runge-Kutta in Section 11.2.5. Make sure you show at least
one illustration of the numerical problem described with small .

## Problem 6: Look and explain! (10 points)

Take a look at the raptorchase code from the start of class.
Go through it an explain what each segment does! You may use
as much or as little granularity as you want.
