1694e + 13. It is not difficult to see that the exact values all satisfy 0 < yn < 1, and hence the computed solution, at least for n ≥ 18, is meaningless! 6 will not occur in any of the algorithms developed in this text from here on. Specific exercises for this section: Exercises 4–5. 4 Exercises 0. 1, between scientific computing and numerical analysis? (b) Give a simple example where relative error is a more suitable measure than absolute error, and another example where the absolute error measure is more suitable.

Roundoff error accumulation Even if number representations were exact in our floating point system, arithmetic operations involving such numbers introduce roundoff errors. These errors can be quite large in the relative sense, unless guard digits are used. These are extra digits that are used in interim calculations. The IEEE standard requires exact rounding, which yields that the relative error in each arithmetic operation is also bounded by η. Given the above soothing words about errors remaining small after representing a number and performing an arithmetic operation, can we really put our minds at ease and count on a long and intense calculation to be as accurate as we want it to be?

I=1 (a) Which of the two methods to calculate s 2 is cheaper in terms of overall computational cost? Assume x¯ has already been calculated and give the operation counts for these two options. (b) Which of the two methods is expected to give more accurate results for s 2 in general? (c) Give a small example, using a decimal system with precision t = 2 and numbers of your choice, to validate your claims. 20. , for two floating point numbers x and y, fl(x + y) = (x + y)(1 + ), | | ≤ η. But is this true also for elementary functions such as sin, ln, and exponentiation?
