Consider the following equation.

\n\t

\$\\simplify[std]{e^({m}x)+{b}x-{a}=0}\$

Find the approximate solution in the range $0 \\le x \\le 1$ by using the Newton-Raphson method.

The following diagram demonstrates the method.

a)

\n\t

Recall that the Newton-Raphson method is defined by:
\$x_{n+1}=x_n-\\frac{g(x_n)}{g'(x_n)}\$
where we would like to find the root of the equation $g(x)=0$

\n\t

In this question we have:
\$\\simplify[std]{g(x) = Exp({m} * x) + {b} * x + { -a}} \\Rightarrow \\simplify[std]{g'(x) = {m}*Exp({m} * x) + {b}}\$
Substituting these expressions into the formula we have:
\$x_{n+1} =\\simplify[std]{ x_n -((Exp({m} * x_n) + {b} * x_n + { -a}) / ({m} * Exp({m} * x _n) + {b}))}\$

\n\t

which can be rearranged to give:
\$x _{n + 1} = \\simplify[std]{(({m} * x_n -1) * Exp({m} * x _n) + {a}) / ({m} * Exp({m} * x _n) + {b})}\$

\n\t

(In your answers you would input $x$ rather than $x_n$.)

\n\t

In the following let $\\displaystyle f(x)=\\simplify[std]{ (({m} * x -1) * Exp({m} * x ) + {a}) / ({m} * Exp({m} * x ) + {b})}$

\n\t

b)

\n\t

If $x_0=2$ then $x_1$ is simply given by:
\$\\simplify[std]{x_1 = (({2*m} -1) * Exp({2*m}) + {a}) / ({m} * Exp({2*m}) + {b})}\$

\n\t

which to 4 decimal places is: $\\;\\;x_1= \\var{ans}$

\n\t

We find on running the iteration that the first six values are:

\n\t

\\\begin{align}x_1&=f(x_0)=f(2)&=\\var{results}\\\\x_2&=f(x_1)=f(\\var{results})&=\\var{results}\\\\x_3&=f(x_2)=f(\\var{results})&=\\var{results}\\\\x_4&=f(x_3)=f(\\var{results})&=\\var{results}\\\\x_5&=f(x_4)=f(\\var{results})&=\\var{results}\\\\x_6&=f(x_5)=f(\\var{results})&=\\var{results}\\end{align}\

\n\t

So the solution to the equation to four decimal places for $0 \\le x \\le 1$ is $x=\\var{precround(ans1,4)}$

\n\t

Here we see the graph of $\\simplify{e^({m}*x)+{b}*x-{a}}$ and the first four successive approximations to the root:

\n\t

{test(m,b,a,maxy)}

\n\t

\n\t

Note that you can slide the first approximation $x_0$ along the x-axis to see the effect of changing the starting value.

Using the Newton-Raphson formula, if $x_n$ is the $n$th estimate for this root, show that the next estimate can be written in the form \$x_{n+1}= \\frac{p(x_n)}{g'(x_n)}\$
Enter $p(x_n)$ and $g'(x_n)$ in the boxes below.
