### Numerical estimates for the convergence order of trapezoidal-like Runge-Kutta methods

I have to calculate approximations of the solution with the method $$y^{n+1}=y^n+h \cdot [\rho \cdot f(t^n,y^n)+(1-\rho) \cdot f(t^{n+1},y^{n+1})] ,\quad n=0,\ldots,N-1 \\ y^0=y_0$$ for various ...

### Rate of convergence of modified Newton's method for multiple roots

I've got a problem with a modified Newton's method. We've got a function $f \in C^{(k+1)}$ and $r$ which is it's multiple root of multiciplity $k$. Also $f^{(k)}(r) \neq 0$ and $f'(x) \neq 0$ in the ...

My numerical analysis textbook (Burden and Faires) derives Simpson's rule as \begin{align} \int_{x_0}^{x_2}f(x)\,dx&=2hf(x_1)+\frac{h^3}{3}f''(x_1)+\frac{h^5}{60}f^{(4)}(\xi_1) \\&=\frac{h}{...
I want to fit a curve of the form $y = ab^x +c$ where a, b and c are constant whereby i have a data of points $(x_i, y_i)$ I can reduced my primary equation into a form \$log(y - c) = log(a) + xlog(b)...
