SciPy 3d plotting Integral of $\int x^y dx$ for $y$ in $[-4,4]$

Ideally, I would like to get the symbolic/algebraic integral of the function and plot the resulting surface in 3d. I am not sufficiently versed in SciPy to know if this is even really possible.

How to efficiently solve badly scaled linear equation system (regression)?

For a project I have to estimate parameters of a function in least-square sense. Up to now I did this with Matlab and lsqnonlin() what worked quite well. Now I have to use this regression-algorithm in ...

Derivative chain rule

Define a sequence $(\mathbf{y})_{i=0}^N$ in $\mathbb{R}^n$ such that: $$\mathbf{y}_{k+1} = \mathbf{y}_{k} + \lambda \nabla_\mathbf{y} E(\mathbf{y}_k,\mathbf{w}), \quad k=0,1,\ldots,N-1,$$ where $\...

Does the limit of $\frac{\partial f}{\partial u}$ at $u=0$ exist?

For an optimization routine I needed to compute the derivative of the right-hand side $\: f_u(x_k, u_k)$ of a discrete-time system $x_{k+1} = f(x_k, u_k)$. Since $\: f_u(x_k, u_k)$ includes terms that ...

Simpsons Rule 10<-6 Error

I am making a Java function to calculate $\int_{0}^{\pi/2}x/sin(x) dx$ using Simpsons rule. When the function equals $0$ or $0/\sin(0)$ should I just add $1$ (limit) or $10^{-10}$ (limit). My ...

I have a problem in finding the exact area and estimating the error [closed]

The program should first read from the keyboard the values of a and b then estimate the area under f(x) in the interval [a, b] using Simpson’s 1/3rd rule and display the estimated area and the error ...

Is there a relationship between the covariance matrix and the partial derivative?

Suppose that there are $N$ pieces of data, each of which contains $M$ parameter values such that $N >> M$. If we put this information into matrix form ($N$ rows, $M$ columns) and then compute ...
