Computation Contest #5 [2 SBI]
Here you can solve interesting problems using whatever programming language you like. Also you will earn SBI and sometimes STEM by doing so.
Also you might learn new things by doing so.
The tasks will be rather hard to solve without a programmable computer and some programming skills, but if you want to add a few million numbers by hand or similar, I would still give you the reward.
No upvote, No resteem, No follow required!
I will give the prize randomly to those who solved the problem.
If two pieces of code are to closely related I might consider the later of them as copied which results in no prize for that person.
You have 4 days to solve it.
Even though this is about computation I will also accept algebraic solutions if you find one.
In order to get accepted you need to somehow attach your code.
The problem of this contest is similar to what you did last week:
Integrate that function using a computer, but use a different technique:
- Generate the taylor polynomial at x=1(using your computer) for about 100 terms of the function you should integrate.
- Integrate that taylor polynomial using the power rule.
- Use that integral to calculate the integral.
Use that procedure to integrate said function from 0.9 to 1.1.
Compare the result to what the method from #4 gets.
In case no one gets a result(which I doubt), I will give away the prize to the person who makes the most constructive description why the problem is too hard in your opinion.
