In bisection method the interval from a to b into equal intervals ,no account is taken of the magnitude of .An alternative method that exploits this graphical insights is to join by a straight line.The intersection of this line with the Xaxis represents an improved estimate of the root.The replacement of the curve by a straight line gives a “ the origin of the name ,method of false position ,or in Latin ,Regula falsi .It is also called the linear interpolation method.

2 System of linear equation
Introduction
Many problems in
Engineering and science needs the solution of a system of simultaneous linear
equations .The solution of a system of simultaneous linear equations is
obtained by the following two types of methods
Direct methods (Gauss elimination and Gauss Jordan
method)
Indirect methods or iterative methods (Gauss Jacobi
and Gauss Seidel method)
(a) Direct methods are those in which
The computation can be completed in a finite number
of steps resulting in the exact solution
The amount of computation involved can be specified in advance.
The method is independent of the accuracy desired.
(b) Iterative methods (self correcting methods) are which
Begin with an approximate solution and
Obtain an improved solution with each step of
iteration
But would require an infinite number of steps to
obtain an exact solution without roundoff errors
The accuracy of the solution depends on the number
of iterations performed.
Simultaneous linear equations
The system of equations in n unknowns x_{1} , x_{2} , x_{3} ,..... x_{n} _{is given by}
The system of equation can be solved by using determinants (Cramer’s rule) or by means of matrices.
These involve tedious calculations. These are other
methods to solve such equations .In this chapter we will discuss four methods
viz.
(i)
Gauss –Elimination method
(ii)
Gauss –Jordan method
(iii)
GaussJacobi method
(iv)
Gauss seidel method
^{Ø}
GaussElimination method
This is an Elimination method and it reduces the
given system of equation to an equivalent upper triangular system which can be
solved by Back substitution.
Consider the system of equations
Gaussalgorithm is explained below:
Step 1. Elimination
of x_{1} from the second and third equations .If
a_{11 != 0 }the first equation is used to eliminate x_{1}
from the second and third equation. After elimination, the reduced system is
Step 2:
Elimination of x_{2 }from the third equation. If a’_{22 != 0 }We
eliminate x_{2} from third equation and the reduced upper
triangular system is
Step 3:
From third equation x_{3} is known. Using x_{3} in the second
equation x2 is obtained. using both x_{2}
And x_{3} in the first equation,
the value of x_{1} is obtained.
Thus the elimination method, we start with the
augmented matrix (A/B) of the given system and transform it to (U/K) by
eliminatory row operations. Finally the solution is obtained by back
substitution process.
2. Gauss –Jordan method
This method is a modification of GaussElimination
method. Here the elimination of unknowns is performed not only in the equations
below but also in the equations above. The coefficient matrix A of the system
AX=B is reduced into a diagonal or a unit matrix and the solution is obtained
directly without back substitution process.
Examples
method (2) Gauss
–Jordan method Ans: x=1; y=3; z=5
Iterative method
These methods are used to solve a special of linear
equations in which each equation must possess one large coefficient and the
large coefficient must be attached to a different unknown in that
equation.Further in each equation, the absolute value of the large coefficient
of the unknown is greater than the sum of the absolute values of the other
coefficients of the other unknowns. Such type of simultaneous linear equations
can be solved by the following iterative methods.
GaussJacobi method
Gauss seidel method
i.e., the coefficient
matrix is diagonally dominant.
Solving the given system
for x,y,z (whose diagonals are the largest values),we have
GaussJacobi method
If the r^{th} iterates are x^{(r} ^{)} , y
^{(r} ^{)} , z ^{(r} ^{)}
,then the iteration scheme for this method is
The
iteration is stopped when the values x, y, z start repeating with the desired
degree of accuracy.
GaussSeidel method
This method is only a
refinement of GaussJacobi method .In this method ,once a new value for a
unknown is found ,it is used immediately for computing the new values of the
unknowns.
If the r^{th} iterates are, then the
iteration scheme for this method is
Hence finding the values of the unknowns, we use the
latest available values on the R.H.S The process of iteration is continued
until the convergence is obtained with desired accuracy.
Conditions for convergence
Gaussseidel method will converge if in each
equation of the given system ,the absolute values o the largest coefficient is
greater than the absolute values of all the remaining coefficients
This is the sufficient condition for convergence of
both GaussJacobi and Gaussseidel iteration methods.
Rate of convergence
The rate of convergence
of gaussseidel method is roughly two times that of GaussJacobi method.
Further the convergences in GaussSeidel method is very fast in gaussJacobi
.Since the current values of the unknowns are used immediately in each stage of
iteration for getting the values of the unknowns.
Problems
1.Solve by GaussJacobi method, the
following system
3 Matrix inversion
Introduction
A square matrix whose
determinant value is not zero is called a nonsingular matrix. Every nonsingular
square matrix has an inverse matrix. In this chapter we shall find the inverse
of the nonsingular square matrix A of order three. If X is the inverse of A,
Then
Inversion by GaussJordan method
By Gauss Jordan method, the inverse matrix X is
obtained by the following steps:
Step 1: First consider the augmented matrix
Step 2: Reduce the matrix A in to the identity
matrix I by employing row transformations.
The row transformations used in step 2 transform I to A^{1}
Finally write the inverse matrix A^{1}.so
the principle involved for finding A^{1} is as shown below
Note
The
answer can be checked using the result

For every square matrix
A, there is a scalar λ and a nonzero column vector X such that AX= λ
X .Then the scalar λ is called an
Eigen value of A and X, the corresponding Eigen vector. We have studied earlier
the computation of Eigen values and the Eigen vectors by means of analytical
method. In this chapter, we will discuss an iterative method to determine the
largest Eigen value and the corresponding Eigen vector.
