Exercise 1: Numbers and Arrays

Consider the following function, which depends on the integer and the real variable :

a. Evaluate this function for the six values corresponding to N=1,2,3 and x=1,2 using python as a

calculator. Create a separate jupyter cell for each result.

# HINT: exponentiation is accomplished with **

b. Now let's create a python function that takes two arguments, N and x, and returns .

def eN(N, x):

"""Compute e_N(x) = (1+x/N)**N."""

val = # FILL HERE

return val

c. Use your function to evaluate for the 6 values of part a.

# FILL HERE

d. Many of you will know that

If you don't, you should remember it -- it's easy to derive:

where we used the leading Taylor expansion of for small in the

exponent.

Let's check this numerically.

Make an array of the values of for .

# create an array of N values from 1 to 100

Ns = r_[1:101]

# for loop method

# create an empty (zero) matrix of the right shape

eNs = zeros((len(Ns),), dtype=float)

# iterate over the N values using a for loop

for (i,N) in enumerate(Ns):

eNs[i] = # FILL HERE

Display the array values.

Plot the values versus . Make sure to label the axes on your plot and set the

marker for the points to be 'x' with no line drawn between the points.

Exercise 2: Discretizing Real Derivatives

In this exercise, we will learn how to numerically represent, manipulate and plot functions of 1

variable in numpy.

Suppose that somebody has heated a 2m bar which reaches from to using a blow torch

such that the temperature in Kelvin,

has a Gaussian profile.

The first representation of such a function that we may want to use it is programmatic:

a. Define a pythonic function called temperature which accepts the position x as an argument and

computes the temperature at that point. Make sure to include a document string explaining what

it does in english.

# FILL HERE

b. Evaluate the temperature at the center and the ends of the bar.

c. In order to plot this temperature profile, we discretize our representation of it. That is, we will

create two one-dimensional arrays, the first of which represents the positions at which we

sample the temperature and the second the values of the temperature at those

positions.

Create an array called x with a regularly spaced grid of 100 points between -1 and 1 (inclusive).

(Hint: the functions arange, linspace and/or r_ might help.)

# FILL HERE

In order to evaluate the temperature at all the positions in x, we can exploit numpy's element-wise

mathematics. Simply pass x to your temperature function to get an array of temperature values at

each of the points x. Assign this to T.

# FILL HERE

d. Now let's take a look at what we've done. Use the plot function to plot the temperature along

the bar. Make sure to label your axes including the units of and .

# FILL HERE

e. Repeat the above but reduce the number of points in the grid to 5. One of the essential parts of

numerical computing is ensuring that discretization error is small enough for whatever purposes

is at hand. Is it small enough with a grid of 5 points for correct visualization?

f. Now let's consider the derivative of . Define a function diffTempAnalytic(x) which returns the

derivative by working out the functional form of analytically.

g. Let's compute a numerical representation of the derivative. Suppose we only have the values of

the function on a regularly spaced mesh of points , with running from 0 to the number of

points in the grid minus 1. There are many approaches to estimating the derivative. The simplest

is to approximate the derivative by the finite difference quotient

If is sufficently small, then this should be a good approximation to the value of

at any point in the range between and . If we associate the approximate derivative to the

point this is called a 'forward difference'; if we associate it to it is called a 'backward

difference'.

Use the forward difference method to estimate the derivative on a grid of 100 points and assign it

to the variable diffT. (Hint: you may find the diff function useful.)

h Now make a plot with both the gradient computed using the function defined in part f and the

numerically estimated gradient from part g. Do they agree? Don't forget to label your axes

including units.

i. What are the sources of error in the previous comparison? How could you improve this?
