Construct a sequence of interpolating values \(Y_n, to,f(1 + \sqrt{10})\), where \(f(x) = (1 + X^2)^{1}\) for
\(5 \leq X \leq 5\), as follows: For each n = 1,2, ... ,10, let h = 10/n and \(Y_n = P_n(1 + \sqrt{10})\),
where Pn(x) is the interpolating polynomial for f(x) at the nodes \(x_0^n, x_1^n,…,x_n^n\) and
\(x_j^n= 5 + jh\), for each j = 0, 1,2, ... ,n. Does the sequence {Y_n} appear to converge to
\(f(1 + \sqrt{10})\)
How would i set up this sequence?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like i just need to figure out what my x's wld be but with these h's and j's I am getting confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@swissgirl Not that I ever dealt with interpolating polynomials much, BUT 1) They are definitely NOT unique  even I know of at least 23 completely different such interpolating polynomials  Lagrange, Bezier curves http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%A9zier_curve, and Chebyshev polynomials 2) They are very oscillating beasts  don't behave well when forced too much

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lagrange of specified degree IS unique . But if Not lagrange or not specific degree  MULTIPLIQUE !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You find ur interp.ing values by simple 1st or 2nd degree Taylor approxim. THEN you costruct your Lagrange polyn. or whatever

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well I tried. Anyway , for me it very clear that the words "THE interpolating polynomial of degree 10" are ill defined.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Mikael it is not different. The assumption gives fix points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I vaguely remember tha on compact interval they do converge in most norms to the function  unless of course the function has unbounded variation. And this may be here because of vertic asymptote

Mikael

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the functionis bounded and continuous ==> bounded variation

Mikael

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I guess e can not solve it directly. So I guess it is not going to be zero because f(x) at interval [5,5] has no Tylor polynomial. and it just converge for interval with radios one around a fix point.
