The experiments are performed with round-off error control technique for ERKN64 integrator applied to the Jovian problem over a long interval of duration, as long as one million years, with the local error tolerances ranging from 10 -16 to 10- 8.
Furthermore, the computational implementation of (3) generates additional problems, related to the round-off error and also to accumulation of error in the subtraction of closed values.
5) For multistep calculations, keep as many digits as practical in intermediate results (at least 1 digit more than the final result) to avoid round-off error.
The round-off error introduced by this quantisation is fed back in the filter equation at next steps via [y.
In this research, the discretization error was caused by the formulation of the FDTD method, and the round-off error was caused by continuously rounding off the digits during the simulation.
the abscissa can be chosen to minimize a bound on the round-off error associated with evaluating w(x) for x [element of] [[Alpha], [Beta]],
Another example is the claim that the "calculator formula" to compute a variance is more accurate and less subject to round-off error than other formulas.
Thus, the additional round-off error induced by adding the w(j)'s potentially troublesome only when there are many summands (large [lambda]).
There's no paradox here: It's simply a matter of the calculator's round-off error.
The round-off errors in the calculation of q and r are propagated to s through Eq.
89t/m3 for sulphide, 2,59t/m3 for oxide; minor rounding errors; significant figures quoted do not imply precision and are used to minimize round-off errors.
