DON'T contact me, as too many students then decide I am their personal consultant if I allow it. Anyway. I won't answer questions. PERIOD. I don't do your homework. I won't do consulting by mail. A retired mathematician, numerical analyst, woodworker, bridge player.

Upper bound curve that passes through the extreme (highest) points
I would argue a convex hull is probably at least close to what is wanted. That it works here because the envelope is roughly a c...

Most efficient way to solve a symbolic equation system with more than 2k unknowns
Symbolic solvers are SLOW. Well, comparatively so. This is partly because they use high precision. The computations, if they are...

I want to ask how to define the partial fraction code single number located at the numerator?
Remember that MATLAB does not understand implicit multiplication. That is, 4x is not interpreted as 4*x. In MATLAB, 4x is just a...

How to extrapolate the data while some data is already supplied on one spine?
Extrapolation using a spline (in any form)? A terribly bad idea in general. Extrapolation over a long distance? Another terribl...

Orthogonality by Singular value decomposition "svd"
Seems easy enough. A = randi(5,[5,3]) rank(A) So A is a simple matrix, with rank 3. There are 3 vectors that would form a bas...
