Implementing Euler's method for a 1D system
5 views (last 30 days)
I'm having trouble implementing euler's method for 𝑓(𝑥) = 𝑥^3 + 𝑥^2 − 12𝑥. I originally plotted the function just fine using this script:
x = [-5:0.1:5];
y = x.^3 + x.^2 - 12*x;
Then when I try to implement euler's method to this function, I'm not receiving the same graph and am confused why. If I change anything in the x constraint it says my arrays are incorrect. If I change N for my number of steps it says incorrect arrays. And anything I put into my initial condition y(1) alters where the graph ultimately lays but never correctly on the roots.
I did follow the basic steps for implementing euler's method that I am aware of, but it's not creating the graph I expect.
Ultimately I was supposed to plot the original function, then implement the 1D system using euler's method and x(t). But I can't get the code to run correctly for just the 1D system alone, let alone x(t).
