5/5 - (3 votes)

The learning objective of this lab is to let student warm up for Java programing language on Eclipse platform. Furthermore,
you will have a chance to implement some mathematical operations at Java using recursive and iterative programming
approaches. Additionally, you will learn how to read a file and parse it in java 1.8. Throughout the experiment, we will use
Eclipse Neon IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for coding activities. Other environments are not being accepted
for this assignment.
The marking scheme is shown below. Evaluation of code section will involve different aspects. Moreover, the report for
your assignment must be submitted along with your code file.

1 Required environment: Eclipse Neon2 + JDK 8

Note: In your solutions, your algorithm and code should be as simple as possible. Algorithms, which are more complicated
than what should be, will get reduced marks.
In this assignment, we will develop a very simple application which do some mathematical calculations. Briefly, you will
write a Java application which covers the following operations:
 Integral computation via middle Riemann sum with in a range
 Numerical approximation of arcsinh(x) function by Maclaurin series
 Finding the Armstrong (narsist) numbers within a range
In order to make these operations, you will read your input.txt (commands) file. Remember that, this file will be provided
as a command argument and the name of the file may vary. You can use Scanner object to read your file. Information about
using command arguments and file I/O via Scanner object will be given in next sections.
In this section, details of the commands along with their theory have been provided.
2.1.1 Riemann Sum
Another numerical method for approximating an integral is Riemann sum which has been named after German
mathematician Bernhard Riemann. The sum is calculated by dividing the region up into shapes (rectangles, trapezoids,
parabolas, or cubics) that together form a region that is similar to the region being measured, then calculating the area for
each of these shapes, and finally adding all of these small areas together. This approach can be used to find a numerical
approximation for a definite integral even if the fundamental theorem of calculus does not make it easy to find a closedform solution [2].
Let f : D → R be a function defined on a subset, D, of the real line, R. Let I = [a, b] be a closed
interval contained in D, and let
be a partition of I, where
A Riemann sum of f over I with partition P is defined as

Notice the use of “a” instead of “the” in the previous sentence. This is due to the fact that the
choice of 𝑥𝑖

in the interval [𝑥𝑖−1
, 𝑥𝑖
]is arbitrary, so for any given function f defined on an interval
I and a fixed partition P, one might produce different Riemann sums depending on which 𝑥𝑖

chosen, as long as 𝑥𝑖−1 < 𝑥𝑖 ∗ < 𝑥𝑖 holds true.  If 𝑥𝑖 ∗ = 𝑥𝑖−1 for all i, then S is called left Riemann sum  If 𝑥𝑖 ∗ = 𝑥𝑖 for all i, then S is called right Riemann sum  If 𝑥𝑖 ∗ = 1 2 (𝑥𝑖 + 𝑥𝑖−1) for all i, then S is called middle Riemann sum In this experiment, you are supposed to employ middle Riemann sum rule. 2.1.2 Maclaurin Series for approximation of Arcsinh(x) Maclaurin Series are special cases of Taylor Series where the series are centered at zero. Each of these series are sum of infinite number of terms and used for calculating a special function. For this operation, you will implement arcsinh(x) function as Maclaurin Series. For function arcsinh(x) value of “x” will be given by user. After calculating result using formula above, you will print it to the console. Although the formula contains infinite number of terms, you need to add only first 30 terms. This will give you a precise enough result. Keep in mind that the formula is defined in |𝑥| < 1 𝑎𝑟𝑐𝑠𝑖𝑛ℎ(𝑥) = ∑ (−1) 𝑛(2𝑛)! 4 𝑛(𝑛!)2(2𝑛+1) 𝑥 ∞ 2𝑛+1 𝑛=0 for |𝑥| < 1 2.1.3 Armstrong Numbers In recreational number theory, a narcissistic number (also known as an Armstrong number, after Michael F. Armstrong) is a number that is the sum of its own digits each raised to the power of the number of digits [3]. For example 407 and 153 are both Armstrong numbers since, 407 = 43 + 03 + 73 153 = 13+ 53+ 33 In this assignment one of your task is to find out and print the Armstrong numbers whose digit number is below or equal to the given digit parameter (e.g 3, 5) SOFTWARE USAGE Your program will be a console application and read the input file. For each line there will be command to be executed. Upon execution, result of each command must be printed to console by using System.out.println function. Keep in mind that, your input file will be located at the same directory where .classpath and .project files are being located. Upon clicking the “Run” button, it must immediately execute/output the result of the listed commands and exit without any prompt or user interaction. Note that there is no limit for the number of commands and they will be syntax-error free. Moreover, each command is delimited by the character of whitespace. DETAILS OF THE COMMANDS In this experiment, your input file will have 4 kinds of commands with varying number of parameters. For each command, output must involve both command (with parameters) and its result. Please refer to the table below for the details. BBM 104 Lab 1 Page 4 of 5 1.

Their formulas are given below. Keep in mind that you must implement these functions as hardcoded. For the Func3, you have to use your own arcsinh(x) function. Func1(x) = 𝑥 2 − 𝑥 + 3 Func2(x) = (3 sin(𝑥)− 4) 2 Func3(x) = arcsinh(x) |𝑥| < 1 3 FILE READ WITH SCANNER There exist various ways to read a text file in Java. However, in this experiment you are supposed to use the most basic one. Scanner is a simple text scanner which can parse primitive types and strings using regular expressions. A Scanner breaks its input into tokens using a delimiter pattern, which by default matches whitespace. The resulting tokens may then be converted into values of different types using the various next methods. Since you are a beginner in Java, the example code has been given below. BBM 104 Lab 1 Page 5 of 5 public static void main(String[] args) { try { Scanner scanner = new Scanner(new File(args[0])); while(scanner.hasNextLine()){ String line = scanner.nextLine(); // do something with your line } scanner.close(); } catch (FileNotFoundException ex) { System.out.println("No File Found!"); return; } } 4 SAMPLE INPUT & OUTPUT Input.txt IntegrateReimann Func1 2 7 10 IntegrateReimann Func1 2 7 100 IntegrateReimann Func2 2 7 10 IntegrateReimann Func2 2 7 100 IntegrateReimann Func3 0.2 0.5 10 Arcsinh 0.8 Armstrong 3 Output window IntegrateReimann Func1 2 7 10 Result: 104.0625 IntegrateReimann Func1 2 7 100 Result: 106.43190624999957 IntegrateReimann Func2 2 7 10 Result: 126.77543832897483 IntegrateReimann Func2 2 7 100 Result: 126.84545266999328 IntegrateReimann Func3 0.2 0.5 10 Result: 0.10264104641331061 Arcsinh 0.8 Result: 0.73298321768061 Armstrong 3 Result: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 153 370 371 407 5 SPECIAL NOTES  Send your submission via a zip file.
