    Sets functions and iterations

    I am new to algebra and help would be more than welcome to tell me if the process I have built is OK, and if my attempt to apply formula on two sets to create a new one is also OK. Context I have a database containing species records (e.g. 10 different species, with 100 rows by species ; in...

    Convergence of an iteration

    We have the following iteration: $x^{(k)}$ = G$x^{(k)}$ +b Spectral radius of A=10 and has eigenvalues > 5 Reason of not covergence is obvious. But how do we make it converge through either Jacobi, Gauss Siedel or SOR?

    Jacobi and Gauss-Seidel Iteration question

    One of my homework problems that I am stuck on. For the Matrix 1 2 -2 1 1 1 2 2 1 What is the spectrum for the Jacobi iteration matrix and the Gauss-Seidel iteration matrix. And are the methods convergent? Any information or help would be really appreciated.

    Hi, I've a big problem with an iterative exercice. Actually I don't know how to begin and it would be nice if someone could help me and say if I am wrong ... My problem is the following : $c_1, ..., c_n \in R^+_0 $ and $A$ a matrix nxn such as : $a_{i,i}=2+c_i$ $a_{i,i+1}=a_{i,i-1}=-1 $...

    Solving an integral equation by iteration

    Hello guys! I was given a Volterra integral equation y(x)=1/2*x^2+integral(0--->x) [t(t-x)y(t)]dt to solve using iteration. I have no idea how and where to start... The full problem goes as follows: Show that the solution y(x) of y''+xy=1, y(0)=y'(0)=1 also satisfies the integral equation...

    Common Iteration . Need help!

    Someone maybe can explain me how use common iteration, when equation is lnx-(1/x)+M=0 ( I understand that the equation to be transformed in a form g(x)=x and i did it, x=(e^1/x)*(e^-M) but what's next...i'm not understand )

    Reduce function value by iteration

    Given certain function f(X) which is quadratic in X, in order to obtain its min, I set the gradient to 0 to obtain [tex ]\nabla f(X) = AX-b [/tex] [1] So, the solution to the following linear system AX=b [2] with the unknown X would give me the value that minimizes f(X). Since...

    Order of Convergence of an Iteration

    Please assist me how to find convergence/ order of convergence, or if it will converge or not. Which of the following iterations will converge to the indicated fixed point A (provided Xo is chosen sufficiently close to A). If the iteration does converge, give the order of convergence. For...

    Numerical Analysis - Fixed Point Iteration

    Assume that g is a continuously differentiable function and that the Fixed-Point Iteration g(x) = x has exactly three ?xed points, ?3, 1, and 2. Assume that g'(?3) = 2.4 and that FPI started suf?ciently near the ?xed point 2 converges to 2. Find g'(1). Guess F(x) = x^3 - 7x + 6 where -3...

    Is there field of study dealing with function iteration?

    I'm wondering if anyone knows of some kind of resource or field in mathematics that can explain some of the behaviour of iterated functions ie. applying a function to itself over and over again. For example, if f(x) = 2x, f iterated n times on x (written as f^n(x)) would be (2^n)x. I tried...

    Using Iteration

    so I need to guess a formula for the sequence Bk=B?k/2? + 1 for all integers k >= 2 and B1=1 So B2=2 B3=3 B4=3 B5=4 B6=4 B7=4 B8=4 B9=5 B10=5 ...... now Im having a hard time coming up with a formula, I tried Bn=1 + log of ?n? in base 2. However, this works for B2,B3,...... but not for B1. Any...
