Linear Algebra Project : Dominant Eigenvalue Computation

a. Apply the Power Method to estimate the dominant eigenvalue and a corresponding eigenvector for the matrix A and initial vector x0 below. Stop at k = 5. You can use 5 decimal places maximum if you wish (using rounding). A = 8 0 12 1 −2 1 0 3 0 ; x0 = 1 0 0 (You can also choose any other 3 × 3 or 4 × 4 matrix instead of the matrix and initial vector above, if you wish. Do not use 2 × 2 matrix.)

b. Use the characteristic equation (as seen in class) to nd the exact value of the dominant eigenvalue. Compare with your estimate in part a).

Answer #1

Here are some vectors in R 4 : u1 = [1 3 −1 1] u2 = [1 4 −1 1]
u3 = [1 0 −1 1] u4 = [2 −1 −2 2] u5 = [1 4 0 1]
(a) Explain why these vectors cannot possibly be
independent.
(b) Form a matrix A whose columns are the ui’s and compute the
rref(A).
(c) Solve the homogeneous system Ax = 0 in parametric form and
then in vector form. (Be sure the...

1. Given an
n-element array A, Algorithm X executes an
O(n)-time computation for each even
number in A and an O(log n)-time computation for
each odd number in A.
What is the best-case running time of Algorithm X?
What is the worst-case running time of Algorithm X?
2. Given an array,
A, of n integers, give an O(n)-time algorithm that finds
the longest subarray of A such that all the numbers in that
subarray are in sorted order. Your algorithm...

Assume that we are working with an aluminum alloy (k = 180
W/moC) triangular fin with a length, L = 5 cm, base thickness, b =
1 cm, a very large width, w = 1 m. The base of the fin is
maintained at a temperature of T0 = 200oC (at the left boundary
node). The fin is losing heat to the surrounding air/medium at T? =
25oC with a heat transfer coefficient of h = 15 W/m2oC. Using the...

You are evaluating a project for The Tiff-any golf club,
guaranteed to correct that nasty slice. You estimate the sales
price of The Tiff-any to be $430 per unit and sales volume to be
1,000 units in year 1; 1,500 units in year 2; and 1,325 units in
year 3. The project has a 3-year life. Variable costs amount to
$240 per unit and fixed costs are $100,000 per year. The project
requires an initial investment of $174,000 in assets,...

Bardi Trucking Co., located in Cleveland, Ohio, makes deliveries
in the Great Lakes region, the Southeast, and the Northeast. Jim
Bardi, the president, is studying the relationship between the
distance a shipment must travel and the length of time, in days, it
takes the shipment to arrive at its destination. To investigate,
Mr. Bardi selected a random sample of 20 shipments made last month.
Shipping distance is the independent variable and shipping time is
the dependent variable. The results are...

Probability and Genetics Lab
In heredity, we are concerned with the occurrence, every time an
egg is fertilized, of the probability that a particular gene or
chromosome will be passed on through the egg, or through the sperm,
to the offspring. As you know, genes and chromosomes are present in
pairs in each individual, and segregate as they go into the gametes
(egg and sperm). There are two possible genes (alleles) that the
egg or sperm might obtain from each...

Procedure
Experiment 1: Standardize an NaOH Solution Using Benzoic
Acid as Primary Standard
Part 1: Prepare the NaOH Solution
Take a 250 mL volumetric flask from the Containers shelf
and a balance from the Instruments shelf and place them on the
workbench. Zero the mass of the volumetric flask on the
balance.
Take sodium hydroxide from the Materials shelf and add 1
g to the flask. Record the mass from the balance
display.
Place the volumetric flask on the workbench....

1) 2 point charges are separated by a distance of 8 cm. The left
charge is 48 mC and the right charge is -16mC. Using a full sheet
of paper: draw the 2 charges separated by 8cm, centered in the
sheet. (if you are missing a ruler estimate 8cm as ⅓ a paper sheet
length). [6] a) Draw field lines to indicate the electric fields
for this distribution. [4] b) Draw 3 equipotential surfaces, 1
each, that pass: -Through the...
