Xn as constants. 1. 11 (Partial derivative). The k-th partial derivative of f , notated given by differentiating f in its k-th input variable: ∂f d (x1 , . . , xn ) ≡ f (x1 , . . , xk−1 , t, xk+1 , . . , xn )|t=xk . ∂xk dt ∂f ∂xk , is 18 Numerical Algorithms f (x) = c f (x1 , x2 ) x2 (x, f (x)) x ∇f (x) Steepest ascent x1 Graph of f (x) ∇f (x) x2 x1 Level sets of f (x) We can visualize a function f (x1 , x2 ) as a three-dimensional graph; then ∇f (x) is the direction on the (x1 , x2 ) plane corresponding to the steepest ascent of f .

Furthermore, constants such as the speed of light or acceleration due to gravity might be provided to the system with a limited degree of accuracy. ). Simulation and numerical techniques can help answer “what if” questions, in which exploratory choices of input setups are chosen just to get some idea of how a system behaves. In this case, a highly accurate simulation might be a waste of computational time, since the inputs to the simulation were so rough. 2 (Computational physics). Suppose we are designing a system for simulating planets as they revolve around the sun.

7510 . 510 , 20 = 110 , and 21 = 210 . 1; as expected, they are unevenly spaced and bunch toward zero. 5 in this sampling of values; some Numerics and Error Analysis 31 number systems introduce evenly spaced subnormal values to fill in this gap, albeit with less precision. 25, the smallest displacement possible above 1. By far the most common format for storing floating-point numbers is provided by the IEEE 754 standard. This standard specifies several classes of floating-point numbers. For instance, a double-precision floating-point number is written in base b = 2 (as are all numbers in this format), with a single ± sign bit, 52 digits for d, and a range of exponents between −1022 and 1023.
