1 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos1 Lecture 2 Engineering Computation

2 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos2 Smearing Occurs when individual terms are larger than summation itself. Consider the exponential series with x = -10 Consider formulas such as: With 7-decimal-digit accuracy: exact answer = computed answer = – (45 terms) wrong sign ! Largest intermediate terms are: 9th = –2, & 10th = 2, Round-off Error due to Arithmetic Operations

3 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos3 Error caused by the nature of the numerical technique employed to approximate the solution. Example: Maclaurin series expansion of e x If we use a truncated version of the series: Then the Truncation Error is: Truncation Error

4 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos4 Approximations and Rounding Errors Precautions: –Sums of large and small numbers: due to equaling the exponent. They are common in sums of infinite series where the individual terms are very small when compared with the accumulated sum. This error can be reduced by summing first the small terms and using double precision. –Cancellation of the subtraction: The subtraction of very similar numbers. –Smearing: The individual terms are larger than the total sum. –Inner products: They are prone to rounding errors. Thus, it is convenient to use double precision in this type of calculations.

5 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos5 Error Propagation Errors which appear because we are basing current calculations on previous calculations which also incurred some form of error Stability and Condition Number Numerically Unstable: Computations which are so sensitive to round-off errors that errors grow uncontrollably during calculations. Condition: sensitivity to such uncertainty; "well conditioned" vs. "ill conditioned" Condition Number: measure of the condition; i.e., extent to which uncertainty in x is amplified by ƒ(x) C.N.  1 ===> "well-conditioned" C.N. >> 1 ===> "ill-conditioned"

6 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos6 Basic Idea: Predict the value of a function, ƒ, at a point x i+1 based on the value of the function and all of its derivatives, ƒ, ƒ', ƒ",… at a neighboring point x i Given x i, ƒ(x i ), ƒ'(x i ), ƒ"(x i ),... ƒ n+1 (x i ), we can predict or approximate ƒ(x i+1 ) Taylor Series Expansion

7 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos7 General Form: h = "step size" = x i+1 – x i R n = remainder to account for all other terms = O (h n+1 ) with x not exactly known "on the order of h n+1 " Note: f(x) must be a function with n+1 continuous derivatives with x i    x i+1 Taylor Series Expansion

8 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos8  0 th order T.S. approx. (n = 0): f(x i+1 ) = f(x i ) + O (h 1 )  1 st order T.S. approx. (n = 1): f(x i+1 ) = f(x i ) + hf '(x i ) + O (h 2 )  2 nd order T.S. approx. (n = 2):  n th order T.S. approximation will be exact for an n th order polynomial Taylor Series Expansion

9 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos9 Zero order First order Second order f(x i ) f(x i+1 )  f(x i ) f(x i+1 )  f(x i )+f '(x i )h f(x i+1 )  f(x i )+f '(x i )h+ )+f "(x i )h 2 /2! f(x i+1 ) True f(x ) x i+1 xixi h x Taylor Series Expansion

10 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos10 Objective: Evaluate the derivatives of function, ƒ(x i ), without doing it analytically. When would we want to do this? 1. function is too complicated to differentiate analytically: 2. function is not defined by an equation, i.e., given a set of data points (x i, ƒ(x i )), i=1,…,n i01234 x i ƒ(x i ) Numerical Differentiation from Taylor Series Expansion

15 E. T. S. I. Caminos, Canales y Puertos15 Subtracting 2*[2] from [1] yields: f(x i-2 ) – 2f(x i-1 ) = –f(x i ) + h 2 f"(x i ) + O (h 3 ) Rearranging: h 2 ƒ"(x i ) = f(x i ) – 2f(x i-1 ) + f(x i-2 ) + O (h 3 ) Second backward difference Backward Difference Approximation
