Perhaps the customer changes the performance specifications, or perhaps a substitution of building materials leads to a redesign. In this homework assignment, we consider numerical methods that make it easier to reanalyze the design after small changes are made. For definiteness, we focus on truss design, but the same principles apply to any linear model
