Pitfalls in computation, or why a math book isn't enough by George E Forsythe( Book )

9 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The floating-point number system is contrasted with the real numbers. The author then illustrates the variety of computational pitfalls a person can fall into who merely translates information gained from pure mathematics courses into computer programs. Examples include summing a Taylor series, solving a quadratic equation, solving linear algebraic systems, solving ordinary and partial differential equations, and finding polynomial zeros. It is concluded that mathematics courses should be taught with a greater awareness of automatic computation. (Author)

This is a survey of selected computational aspects of linear algebra, addressed to the nonspecialist in numerical analysis. Some current methods of solving systems of linear equations, and computing eigenvalues of symmetric and unsymmetric matrices are outlined. A bibliography containing 62 titles is included. (Author)

Variational study of nonlinear spline curves by E. H Lee( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper is an exposition of the variational and differential properties of nonlinear spline curves, based on the Euler-Bernoulli theory for the bending of thin beams or elastica. For both open and closed splines through prescribed nodal points in the Euclidean plane, various types of nodal constraints are considered, and the corresponding algebraic and differential equations relating curvature, angle, arc length, and tangential force are derived in a simple manner. The results for closed splines are apparently new, and they cannot be derived by the consideration of a constrained conservative system. There is a survey of the scanty recent literature. (Author)
Von Nuemann's comparison method for random sampling from the normal and other distributions by George E Forsythe( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author presents a generalization he worked out in 1950 of von Neumann's method of generating random samples from the exponential distribution by comparisons of uniform random numbers on (0,1). It is shown how to generate samples from any distribution whose probability density function is piecewise both absolutely continuous and monotonic on (negative infinity, infinity). A special case delivers normal deviates at an average cost of only 4.036 uniform deviates each. This seems more efficient than the Center-Tail method of Dieter and Ahrens, which uses a related, but different, method of generalizing the von Neumann idea to the normal distribution. (Author)

On the asymptotic directions of the s-dimensional optimum gradient method by Grace Forsythe( Book )

4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The optimum s-gradient method for minimizing a positive definite quadratic function f(x) on E sub n has long been known to converge for s> or = 1. For these s the author studies the directions from which the iterates x sub k approach their limit, and extends to s> 1 a theory proved by Akaike for s = 1. It is shown that f(x sub k) can never converge to its minimum value faster than linearly, except in degenerate cases where it attains the minimum in one step. (Author)
