New Proof Of The Fundamental Theorem Of Calculus



John,
If indeed your Average Tangent Theorem is true, then it would be a
far more efficient way of proving both the Mean Value Theorem as well
as the FTOC (fundamental theorem of calculus). And yes it wouold
provide a direct link between the derivative and integral.
I can't see any flaws with it but some of your opponents, eg. Graeme
McRae and others don't seem to think so. Perhaps your most vehement
arguments were those on Cuttheknot wher you refuted the
mathematician Vladimir. You have a very abrupt style of responding to
objections  if I may, you may try posing your responses as questions
rather than 'attacks' as has been interpreted by most.
I think McRae is not necessarily an opponent either because he plainly
admits he cannot understand your theorem.
I think you are on to something big here  at least as far as
understanding is concerned. Personally I have failed to see the direct
link even though I've always known there is one. An Archimedes may
have indeed known of differentiation should your theorem be proved.
Jason Wells.

Approximation Formula and much more. I invite you to check out:

It's done routinely since few, if any, real world problems come with a

sw usage. It's a subject of active research, and is also (hopefully) at
the very core of modern cae/cad toolsets. Search for "inverse problems"
to learn more.

There are many statistical procedures of this type as well.
Most Bayesian type problems need this, and it can be used
for classical procedures as well. There is a large
statistical literature here.

Re: Is this M=U^T D U factorization also called Crout factorization?

Quote:  In the 1987 edition of Thomas Hughes's "The Finite Element Method:
Linear Static And Dynamic Finite Element Analysis" (Chapter 11), he
describes a procedure that he called Crout Elimination and Crout
factorization. It factorizes a symmetric and positive definite matrix
into a nonsingular upper triangular matrix U, with unit diagonal
entries, and a diagonal matrix D. The algorithm does not look like the
Crout algorithm people usually refer to in performing a LU
factorization of a general matrix. And the resulting U and D certainly
are not the L and U that we get when we do a LU factorization. Do some
people also use "Crout" to refer to this M = U^T D U factorization?

there is an alternative to the LU decomposition, whereby a third matrix is
generated that only has nonzero elements along its diagonal. Its quite
easy to take an upper triangular matrix, and decompose that into a
'diagonal' matrix, and another upper triangular matrix which has 1's along
its diagonal.
This is someties used as a test for positive definiteness because if the
elements of the diagonal matrix are positive then indeed the matrix
decomposed is itself positive definite.
Anyway basically for a matrix A, then A = LU = LDU'
where D is a diagonal matrix, and U' another upper triangular matrix which
has 1's along its diagonal
If the matrix is symmetric or hermittian, then this LDU' decomposition
becomes LDL^T , which looks like what you have there.

Thanks...

unfortunately, the answer is "no", even for functions of one variable.
there are sufficient criteria of different flavor and power, but nothing
truly general.
for example: f continous and there are a,b such that f(a)*f(b)<0.
f continuously differentiable and 0<c<f'(x) for all x and some fixed c
f a polynomial of odd degree

Let me quote from page 314, the section "PostScript on things not
covered":
The book covers only univariate spline approximations [...] This is to
me the most painful omission since multivariate approximation is, at
present, an exiting area of research, and practical results,
particularly from the finite element method and from Computer Aided
Design, are already available.
In other words: his book, while mathematically fantastic, does not cover
the kind of splines you use in graphics.

Numerical Recipes in Fortran 77, section 4.4 has a discussion and

for this. You can download the pdf file from
http://www.library.cornell.edu/nr/ . One can use an "open"
quadrature
formula, which does not evaluate the function at the endpoints of
the
integration region. Alternatively, a variable transformation can
often
remove the singularity.
Thanks for the info.
The function I need to work on needs to be integrated in [0,\infty)
and has
a singularity at a finite x0 \in [0,\infty).
Assuming x0 is known, one can separately compute the integrals on
(0,x0) and (x0,+inf). The "classic" Fortran (77) quadrature library is
quadpack at http://www.netlib.org/quadpack/ , and I think that library
has codes to handle integrals with endpoint singularities and with
semiinfinite domains.
Some quadpack codes have been translated to F90style codes by Alan
Miller  search "integration" at http://users.bigpond.net.au/amiller/
.
Many Fortran codes for numerical quadrature by Alan Genz, a researcher
in the subject, are at
http://www.math.wsu.edu/faculty/genz/software/software.html . John
Burkhardt has some quadrature codes at
http://www.csit.fsu.edu/~burkardt/f_src/f_src.html .

Re: Graham's Scan Time Complexity



For the vertices that we pop off, comparison can be charged to the pop
operation.
For every vertex, we then are left with one extra orientation test,
which in total causes
only O(n) instructions.
It's just whom you charge the operation, that gets you O(n)
