The quadratic f ( x ) = ( x 0.3)( x 0.5) obviously has zeros at 0.3 and 0.5.
(a) Why is the interval [0.1, 0.6] not a satisfactory starting interval for
bisection?
Ans :
f(0.1) = 0.08 and f(0.6) = 0.03 f(0.1)*f(0.6) > 0

(b) If you start with [0, 0.32], which root is reached with bisection?

## The iteration scheme of Newtons method for root finding is

f ( xk )
x k +1 = x k
f ( x k )
(a) Please describe under what kind of conditions the algorithm does not
converge.
Ans :
1.
f ( x ) = 0
2.
f(x k + i ) = f(x k ) for some i > 0 (loop , see slide chap 1 page 19)
(b) Please show that Newtons method is also an example of the fixed point
method . (express Newtons method in the iteration scheme of the
fixed-point method)
Ans :
f ( xk )
x k +1 = g ( x k ) = x k
f ( x k )

Q UT is a lower-triangular matrixand LT is a upper- triangular matrix
Let L1 = UTU1= LT

First we get y = U1x from L1y = b by forward-substitution
then we get x from y = U1x by backward substitution.
