C++ in DecemberWheaton College, Norton, MA [14F] [15M] [15W] [15F] [FINAL] [Sept] [Oct] [Nov] [Dec] 14F -- Fri, Dec 2
**READING**- two-dimensional (2D) arrays --
**matrices** - storing systems of equations
- multi-dimensional arrays -- can you picture a 6 dimensional array?
15M -- Mon, Dec 5
- We now know everything there is to know about C++ so we have the day off ...
- not!
**Quiz 10****Software Engineering**- a6 dataBase conversion- more on arrays of structs
- evaluating polynomials efficiently
- summary of
**numerical methods**- (c/a) * a = c
*in algebra*; (c/a*a == c)*maybe not be true computationally* - addition is not associative on a machine
- don't compare Reals -- use either:
if (fabs(x-y) < ABSOLUTE_ERROR)*or* if (fabs(x-y)/x < RELATIVE_ERROR) - always trap
- division by zero
- bad arguments to library functions, e.g., ln(-2), sqrt(-3)
- use explict casting
**overflow**(e.g., European Space Agency's Ariane 5 rocket crash)
- (c/a) * a = c
- evaluations
**Lab 13****Part V due**: completed move to your /www space?
**a6 due**- A peek into COMP 116 Data Structures ...
