## Test 1

Consider this notice for the test on Thursday 25 October at 8.20 p.m (just under two weeks away) (I have spoken with Ted and I think there is going to be making a change to his assignment so for now we are full speed ahead for Week 6. Note that there is still a small chance that this will be held in Week 7 Thursday 1 November at 8.20 p.m.).

Please find a sample test. I will give ye a copy of this Thursday night which will include the Finite Differences table and the Laplace Transform tables.

Note that the format will be the same as this.

- Forward Difference Methods (14 marks)
- Gaussian Elimination Methods including Partial Pivoting 7 marks)
- The Jacobi and Gauss-Siedel Method (7 marks)
- Laplace Transforms (7 marks)

Q. 4 will be covered Thursday night.

Student 22You have written but should this not be as you wrote in a previous example.

J.P. McCarthyI must have a made a mistake in the previous page because we usually want to write the Laplace transform as rather than to distinguish it easily from .

Recall that the Laplace Transform is a mapping that ‘eats’ functions of single (positive real) variable and ‘spits out’ functions of a single (complex) variable . If we write for the set of functions of a single positive real variable and for the set of functions of a single complex variable then we might write

.

In this example we could have been more careful and explicit and wrote that is the solution of the differential equation.

Now finally, rather than carry around the messy — the Laplace Transform of (in this case the Laplace Transform of the solution of the differential equation), we just use the notation
