Abstract

The basic concepts of consistency, stability and convergence of a numerical method will be introduced in a very general context in the first part of the chapter: they provide the common framework for the analysis of any method considered henceforth. The second part of the chapter deals with the computer finite representation of real numbers and the analysis of error propagation in machine operations.
