Analysis and Improved Methods for the Error Estimation of Numerical Solutions in Solid and Multibody Dynamics
A posteriori error estimators are useful tools in general purpose numerical computations because they provide an automatic, quantitative assessment of the accuracy of the results. Without some sort of error estimation the validity of any numerical results relies solely on the analyst experience and good judgment. While these are also necessary, they fail to be quantitative and are thus prone to mistakes.
