The following equation can be used to compute values of y as a function of x: y = b  e?ax  sin(b  x)  (0:012  x4 ? 0:15  x3 + 0:075  x2 + 2:5  x) where a and b are parameters. Write the equation for implementation with MATLAB, where a = 2, b = 5, and x is a vector holding values from 0 to =24 in increments of x = =40. Employ the minimum number of periods (i.e., dot notation) so that your formulation yields a vector for y. In addition, compute the vector z = y2 where each element holds the square of each element of y. Combine x, y, and z into a matrix w, where each column holds one of the variables, and display w using the short g format. In addition, generate a labeled plot of y and z versus x. Include a legend on the plot (use help to understand how to do this). For y, use a 1:5-point, dashdotted red line with 14-point, red-edged white-faced pentagram-shaped markers. For z, use a standard-sized (i.e., default) solid blue line with standard-sized, blue-edged, green-faced square markers.

WEEKLY ASSIGNMENT #5.5/EXAM REVIEW YOU 1. True/False Answers Probably want to think about them before you read the answers: (a) fy(a; b) = limh!b f(a;y)?f(a;b) y?b is True (b) There exists a function f with continuous second-order partial derivatives such that fx(x; y) = x + y2 and fy(x; y) = x ? y2. This is False. (c) fxy = @2f @x@y . This is False, because order of differentiation matters (d) Dkf(x; y; z) = fz(x; y; z). This is True. (e) If f(x; y) ! L as (x; y) ! (a; b) along every strait line through (a; b), then lim(x;y)!(a;b) f(x; y) = L. This is False, because there could be a non-strait path that gives a different answer. (f) If fx(a; b) and fy(a; b) both exist, the f is differentiable at (a; b). This is False, read theorem 8 in 14.4 (g) If f has a local minimum at (a; b) and f is differentiable at (a; b), then rf(a; b) = 0. This is True. (h) If f(x; y) = ln y, then rf(x; y) = 1=y. This is false, since gradient of f is a vector function. (i) If f is a function, then lim (x;y)!(2;5) f(x; y) = f(2; 5): This is false, since f may not be continuous. (j) If (2; 1) is a critical point of f and fxx(2; 1)fyy(2; 1) < fxy(2; 1)2 then f has a saddle point at (2; 1). This is True (k) if f(x; y) = sin x + sin y then ? p 2  Duf(x; y)  p 2: This is True since the gradient vector will always have length less than p 2. (l) If f(x; y) has two local maxima, then f must have a local minimum. This is False. It is true for single variable continuous functions, but even if the f(x; y) is continuous this is still not true. Think a bit about why and consider the example (x2 ? 1)2 ? (x2  y ? x ? 1)2. From the review section of chapter 14 (question and answers attached) Do as many as you have time for and pay particular attention to the following : 8-11, 13-17, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35-37, 43-47, 51-56, 59-63. These bolded ones haven’t been collected on any homework, so make sure you can do these especially. I know that is a lot to study and I’m not expecting most people to do them all, but do a bunch and you should be good. 1 Questions from the exam will include true false, only from the above problems. The rest of the questions will come directly (or with minor changes) from the homework and from the review questions listed above from the chapter 14 review. 2
