How can I fix it? To count error ratio for every h step?

If you do it like in your other two codes you posted in the forum, it will work.

Hi E,
It seems like you are using Symmetric Euler method and the expected error ratio with Runge - Kuta rule should be approximately 4. The output of expected error from the code snippet provided by you is close to 2 in all the cases. As mentioned in the comments, issue with the error ratio being approximately 2 instead of 4 seems to stem from the way the error is calculated.
The error should be calculated using the results obtained with different step sizes, not just the difference between the last two steps of the same run. The error estimation should compare the solutions at the same point ( x = x_N ) for two different step sizes, typically ( h ) and ( h/2 ), and use Richardson's extrapolation to estimate the error.
Here's how you can correct the error calculation:
1. Calculate the solution ( Y_h ) using the step size ( h ).
2. Calculate the solution ( Y_{h/2} ) using the step size ( h/2 ).
3. Estimate the error using the difference between ( Y_h ) and ( Y_{h/2} ), scaled by ( 2^p - 1 ).
Here is the updated code snippet:

N_half = N * 2;
h_half = (xN - x0) / N_half;

end
function result = newton(F, x0, tol)
max_iter = 100;
x = x0;
iter = 0;
while iter < max_iter
f_val = F(x);
f_prime = (F(x + tol) - f_val) / tol;
x = x - f_val / f_prime;
if abs(f_val) < tol
result = x;
return;
end
iter = iter + 1;
end
error('Newton''s method did not converge');
end
function y = symmetric_euler(f, x0, y0, h, N)
y = zeros(1, N+1);
y(1) = y0;
for j = 1:N
t_j = x0 + (j-1)*h; % Calculate current time step
t_jp1 = t_j + h; % Calculate next time step
F = @(y_new) y_new - y(j) - (h/2) * (f(t_j, y(j)) + f(t_jp1, y_new));
y_new = newton(F, y(j), 1e-6);
y(j+1) = y_new;
end
end
I defined a new function "symmetric_euler" that performs the Symmetric Euler method and returns the array of ( y ) values. We use this function to calculate ( Y_h ) and ( Y_{h/2} ). The "interp1" function is used to obtain the exact solution at ( x = x_N ) from the ode45 results.
The error ratio column shows values that are close to 4, which is consistent with the expected behavior of the method. The NaN in the first row for the Error and Error_Ratio columns is expected because there is no previous step size to compare with for the first calculation.
I hope it helps!
