ii. Assume that there is 60% uncertainty on the coefficients of the s term of the
numerator and s
3
term of the denominator. Find a weighting function W such
that the multiplicative uncertainty represents the effect of the parametric
uncertainties on these coefficients as closely as possible.

2) For each of the following matrices compute a singular value decomposition and
show how the matrix maps the unit circle in x

For each matrix plot the unit circle and the associated ellipse. Show all important
singular vector information on the plots. Also find the eigenvalues of these matrices
and compare with the singular values.
