Comparison between LAGRANGE and Spline Interpolation
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153574&ref=Feed
<p>In this worksheet a comparison between the <em>LAGRANGE </em>and the <em>Spline Interpolation </em>has been discused based upon eleven interpolating points. In order to arrive at a <em><strong>smooth </strong></em>interpolation a <strong>cubic spline </strong>has been utilized. High-degree splines are similar to LAGRANGE polynomials. A spline of degree = infinity is identical to the LAGRANGE approximation.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=153574/4eafecf1baae01f83c8a823ac067d4fc.gif" alt="Comparison between LAGRANGE and Spline Interpolation" align="left"/><p>In this worksheet a comparison between the <em>LAGRANGE </em>and the <em>Spline Interpolation </em>has been discused based upon eleven interpolating points.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153463&ref=Feed
If P(s) is a parameter-dependent square matrix, what is the locus of its eigenvalues as s varies from, say, 0 to 1? For a non-square P, the eigenvalues can become complex, so the loci could exist as curves in the real or complex planes. To avoid these difficulties, consider only real symmetric matrices for which the loci of eigenvalues are real curves, but curves that could intersect. What does it mean to trace an individual eigenvalue of P(0) to P(1) if the eigenvalue has algebraic multiplicity more than 1?<img src="/view.aspx?si=153463/thumb.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Locus of Eigenvalues" align="left"/>If P(s) is a parameter-dependent square matrix, what is the locus of its eigenvalues as s varies from, say, 0 to 1?

As output, Maple can display the partial derivative ∂/∂<em>x f</em>(<em>x,y</em>) as <em>f</em><sub>x</sub>; that is, subscript notation can be used to display partial derivatives, and it can be done with two completely different mechanisms. This article describes these two techniques, and then investigates the extent to which partial derivatives can be calculated by subscript notation.<img src="/view.aspx?si=100266/thumb.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Partial Derivatives by Subscripting" align="left"/>As output, Maple can display the partial derivative ∂/∂<em>x f</em>(<em>x,y</em>) as <em>f</em><sub>x</sub>; that is, subscript notation can be used to display partial derivatives, and it can be done with two completely different mechanisms.

<p>1) minimum search by coordinate and conjugate directions descent; 2) Powell's method; 3) the modified Hooke-Jeeves method; 4) simplex Nelder-Meed method; 5) quasi-gradient method; 6) random directions search; 7) simulated annealing. All methods are direct searching methods, i.e. they do not require the objective function f(x1,x2,.,xn) to be differentiable and continuous. Maple's Optimization package efficiency is compared with these programs. Optimization methods have been compared on the set of 21 test functions.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=1718/SearchPaths2.PNG" alt="Comparison of Multivariate Optimization Methods" align="left"/><p>The worksheet demonstrates the use of Maple to compare methods of unconstrained nonlinear minimization of multivariable function.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=6873&ref=Feed
The Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) is a fascinating optimization problem in which a salesman wishes to visit each of N cities exactly once and return to the city of departure, attempting to minimize the overall distance traveled. For the symmetric problem where distance (cost) from city A to city B is the same as from B to A, the number of possible paths to consider is given by (N-1)!/2. The exhaustive search for the shortest tour becomes very quickly impossible to conduct. Why? Because, assuming that your computer can evaluate the length of a billion tours per second, calculations would last 40 years in the case of twenty cities and would jump to 800 years if you added one city to the tour [1]. These numbers give meaning to the expression "combinatorial explosion". Consequently, we must settle for an approximate solutions, provided we can compute them efficiently. In this worksheet, we will compare two approximation algorithms, a simple-minded one (nearest neighbor) and one of the best (Lin-Kernighan 2-opt).<img src="/view.aspx?si=6873/TSgif.gif" alt="Traveling Salesman Problem" align="left"/>The Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) is a fascinating optimization problem in which a salesman wishes to visit each of N cities exactly once and return to the city of departure, attempting to minimize the overall distance traveled.
