AMATH481: Lecture M 11/28

Note: This post is part of my scientific computing course (UW AMATH481) in autumn 2016. The course web page is here.

In this lecture, we began discussing Chebyshev nodes and Chebyshev polynomials. The material corresponds to Chapter 2 and parts of Chapter 3 of “Approximation Theory and Approximation Practice”, the first 6 chapters of which can be downloaded here. We will be working a lot with the Chebfun MatLab package which can be downloaded and installed following the directions here.

You can download the sketches and code from lecture here. For the code to run, be sure that you have downloaded Chebfun and have added the chebfun directory to your path. See the directions here.
