http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=35301&ref=Feed
<p>On observe d'abord la divergence du polynôme de Lagrange interpolant la fonction densité de probabilité de la loi de Cauchy lorsque la <strong>subdivision est équirépartie</strong> sur [-1;1]. C'est le <u>phénomène de Runge</u>.<br />
<br />
On observe ensuite qu'en choisissant une <strong>subdivision de Chebychev</strong> le phénomène de divergence au voisinage des bornes disparait.<br />
<br />
Cette activité a été réalisé dans le cadre de la préparation à l'agrégation interne de mathématiques de Rennes le 10 Mars 2010.<br />
Les nouveaux programmes du concours incitent à proposer des exercices utilisant les TICE. Il semble difficile de proposer une preuve convaincante du phénomène de Runge pour une épreuve orale. Ceci justifie de ne s'en tenir qu'à la seule observation.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=35301/thumb.jpg" alt="Phénomène de Runge - subdivision de Chebychev" align="left"/><p>On observe d'abord la divergence du polynôme de Lagrange interpolant la fonction densité de probabilité de la loi de Cauchy lorsque la <strong>subdivision est équirépartie</strong> sur [-1;1].

<p>The worksheet demonstrates the use of Maple to compare methods of unconstrained nonlinear minimization of multivariable function. Seven methods of nonlinear minimization of the n-variables objective function f(x1,x2,.,xn) are analyzed:</p>
<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.

Maple includes a number of assistants that allows a user to experiment and easily perform key tasks. This Tips and Technique will focus on the Curve Fitting Assistant. This assistant provides a quick and easy method to fit a curve to a set of data points and to experiment to find the best curve for your data set. The assistant provides a graph showing both the points in your data as well as the curve returned by the choosen curve fitting algorithm.<img src="/view.aspx?si=5473/CurveFitting_12.jpg" alt="Curve Fitting with Maple" align="left"/>Maple includes a number of assistants that allows a user to experiment and easily perform key tasks.

In Maple 11, one of the new additions to the Assistants list is the Back-Solving Assistant. This Tips and Techniques will show you how to get the most out of this new tool.
The Back-Solving Assistant automatically generates a back-solver for your equation, allowing you to instantly solve for any variable in your formula, given the values of the other parameters. You can also plot the behavior of your formula as parameters vary.<img src="/view.aspx?si=5066/BackSolver3.jpg" alt="Back-Solving Assistant" align="left"/>In Maple 11, one of the new additions to the Assistants list is the Back-Solving Assistant.

<p>We describe the Fourier package announced by Karel Srot in a post to MaplePrimes on August 21, 2006. Although a significant portion of the functionality in this package is available elsewhere, the nuances of the commands make for a different feel to the package. In addition, there is a Fourier series Maplet that is worth considering. Instructions for downloading and installing the package are available at www.math.muni.cz/~xsrot/frady. Although the author notes that this site is primarily in Czech, installation instructions within the download are in English.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=4898/R-22TeachingFourierSerieswithMaple-Part4_46.jpg" alt="Classroom Tips and Techniques: Teaching Fourier Series with Maple - Part 4" align="left"/><p>We describe the Fourier package announced by Karel Srot in a post to MaplePrimes on August 21, 2006.
