HW1: Pages 20-24, Problems 2(a,b,e,f,h,i), 3, 6, and 11. (Due Fri., Oct. 6)
NOTE: WED., OCT. 4: Class meets in Computer Lab, B027 Communications.
HW2: Pages 54-55, Problems 1, 4, 6, 7, and 8. (Due Fri., Oct. 13)
HW3: Pages 54-55, Problems 2, 10(a), 11, 12, 13.
Also, download routine complexnewton.m and modify it to find roots of a different cubic polynomial. [You will need to change the inline functions f and fprime, and you will need to change the roots. You may also need to modify parameters like the total number of iterations to be sure that you are getting the correct results.] Turn in the plot that you produce, along with an explanation of the results. (Due Fri., Oct. 20)
