Chapter 4

  • Page 165 / Exercise 4.6.4. The Sherman-Morrison formula is given incorrectly (specifically, the denominator). It should read:
    formula.
    (Thanks to Claudio Torres.)

Chapter 5

  • Page 190 / (5.3.5) and (5.3.6) The right-hand sides of both equations should be vectors, not diagonal matrices. (Thanks to Wei Cai.)
  • Page 199 / (5.4.11) The sum should start at k=0 to be in sync with the code (this formula is not needed elsewhere). (Thanks to Shahrokh Esmaeili.)
  • Page 201 / Exercise 5.4.5 The nodes in part (a) are given by t_j = 0.3 + jh. (Thanks to Shahrokh Esmaeili.)
  • Page 215 / Example 5.5.3 The first expression in the last line of the formula should have a negative sign in front. (Thanks to Peter Monk.)

Chapter 7

  • Page 305 / Theorem 7.2.2 Replace "an nonsingular" with "a nonsingular".

Chapter 8

  • Page 362 / Function 8.5.1 The function runs correctly as printed. However, the H and Q matrices there are initially allocated smaller than their final sizes. (MATLAB expands them anyway.) Also, to be consistent with the earlier arnoldi.m function, replace M with m and m with j.

Chapter 9

  • Page 387 / Figure in example 9.1.1 The y-axis label was not rendered correctly; it is the cardinal polynomial l_2.
  • Page 390 / (9.6.2) The last expression needs to be multiplied by 2. (Thanks to Wei Cai.)
  • Page 423 / Example 9.6.2 In the last line, the results "x_1" and "x_2" should be named "t_1" and "t_2".

Chapter 10

  • Page 415 / Exercise 10.1.1 The boundary conditions were left out of the problem statements. Suggestions: (a) u(0) = 2, u(1) = 3; (b) u'(0) = -1, u(4) = 2; (c) u(-1) = 2, u(1) = 3.
  • Page 416 / Exercise 10.1.2 (c) Typo in boundary conditions; they should be u(-1) = -1, u(1) = 1. (d) Typo in the ODE, use (1-x^2)u'' rather than (1-u^2)u''.
  • Page 467 / Equation (10.4.6a) The beta in this equation should be gamma.
  • Page 468 / Function 10.4.1 Line 15 in the function documentation should be deleted, as it references a nonexistent output argument.

Chapter 12

  • Page 540 / Example 12.4.1 The z-axis of the left-side plot was omitted and should be "u".

Chapter 13

  • Page 547 / Example 13.1.2 The example function should read f(x,y) = sin(xy-y).
  • Page 573 / Example 13.4.2 After the reference to (13.3.6), the next sentence should start, "The second term," not "The first term."
You can’t perform that action at this time.
