Math 300: Mathematical Computing

Python ICE 5

Write a Python function to evaluate \[ s_N=\sum_{n=0}^N \frac{(-1)^{n}x^{2n}}{2n!}. \] You should not use Sympy for this - just Numpy. Obviously it will take two arguments, and return one output. It should handle array arguments for \(x\) and the output, so we can plot results.

The "final exam" for this course will take place at 8:00 AM on Tuesday, 12 December. This will be an ordinary 50 minute test. It will be comprehensive, but weighted toward the latter half of the semester. As always, paper notes will be permitted, but no electronic devices will be allowed.

A Solution example is available for the quiz.

Assignment A is posted.
