Read and understand the following Journal Paper: General Explicit Difference Formulas for Numerical Differentiation by Jianping Li
As your problem set: Show a derivation of the difference formulas shown in equations (5.1) to (5.4). Solutions must be complete.
As your machine problem implement algorithm 6.1 in Octave. Test your algorithm using equation (6.1). Take note that your results must exactly replicate the results of Table 1 – Table 4. Your Octave program must print the table of errors the same way as they are printed in the paper.
MP 2 is a REQUIREMENT TO TAKE EXAM 2.
Deadlines: April 8, 2016, 11:30 PM – for MP 2 and PS 4.
I know that you are not used to reading journal articles, but this part of your growth as students, as computer scientists. Please use the time (no more classes on March 15, March 17, Holy Week) to process the paper. You don’t need to understand the whole paper, but it is important that you understand how the formula is being derived.
