Numerical Methods
12.4. Use and Extension of the Tables We note that for n>6 there is a rapid loss of
significantfigures. On the other hand using 12.1.3
Example 1. Compute b(2) to 6D. From for 2=4 we find H9(4)=.0007935729, &(4)=
Table 12.1 IO(2)-b(2)=.342152; from Table 9.11 .00015447630 and backward recurrence with 12.1.9
we have 10(2)=2.279585 so that &(2)= 1.937433. gives
&(4) = .00367 1495 Ha(4) = A5800 94
Example 2. Compute &(lo) to 6D. From H7(4) = .O1510 315 H,(4) = 1.24867 6
Table 12.2 for z-'=.l. &(10)-Yo(10)=.06307~; &(4)=.05433 519 H1(4)=1.06972 7
from Table 9.1 we have Y0(10)=.055671. Thus, H5(4)= .16719 87 &,(4)= .13501 4
&(10)= .118743. a ( 4 ) = .42637 43
Example 3. Compute~Ho(t)dtfor 2=6 to Example 6. Compute L,(.5) for n=0(1)5 to
8s. From 12.2.1 we find L5(.5)=9.6307462X lo-',
5D. Using Tables 12.2, 11.1 and 4.2, we have L,(.5) =2.1212342X10-6. Then, with 12.2.4 we
get
b(.5)=3.82465 03X10-' &(.5)=.05394 2181
= -.125951+(.636620)(1.791759) b(.5)=5.36867 34X10-a &(.5)=.32724 068
+ A16764
Example 7. Compute L,(.5) for -n=0(1)5
=1.83148 to 6s. From Tables 12.1 and 9.8 we find &(.5) =
.327240, b(.5) = .053942. Then employing 12.2.4
Example 4. Compute H,(z) for 2=4, -n= with backward recurrence we get
0(1)8 to 6s. From Table 12.1 we have If,,(4)=
.1350146, H1(4)=1.0697267. Using 12.1.9 we find L-,(.5)= .690562 L-,(.5)=-75.1418
L-z(.5)= -1.16177 L-5( .5)= 1056.92
H-,(4) = -.433107 H-,(4) = .689652
L-a(.5) = 7.43824
H-z(4)= .240694 H-,j(4)=-1.21906
H-3(4) = .152624 H-7(4) = 2.82066 Example 8. Compute L,(z) for 2=6 and
H-4(4) = -.439789 &(4) =-8.24933 -n=0(1)6 to 8s. From Tables 12.2 and 9.8
we find &(6) =67.124454, L1(6)=60.725011.
Example 5. Compute H,(z) for 2=4, n= Using 12.2.4 we get
0(1)10 to 7s. Starting with the values of &(4)
and H1(4) and using 12.1.9 with forward recur- L-1(6)=61.361631 L-r(6)=16.626028
rence, we get L--p(6)=46.776680 L4(6) = 7.984089
L-a(S> =30.159494 L4(6) = 3.32780
&(4)= .13501 46 &(4) =.05433 54
H1(4)=1.06972 67 H7(4) =.01510 37 We nobe that there is no essential loss of accuracy
&(4)=1.24867 51 HS(4) =.00367 33 until n=-6. However, if further values were
Ha(4)= .85800 95 Hg(4) =.00080 02 necessbry the recurrence procedure becomes un-
H,(4)= .42637 41 H10(4)=.00018 \$6 stable. To avoid the instability use the methods
H5(4)= .16719 87 described in Examples 5 and 6.
