 # How To Fix Rounding Errors With Finite Differences

Contents

Here are a few simple steps to help you solve the finite difference rounding error problem.

Rounding errors usually depend on the need to round (or hash) almost every number to a certain number of digits relative to the numeric calculation. Truncation errors occur when an infinite (in some sense) process is replaced by a deterministic process.

## How can we avoid rounding errors?

Identify and avoid rounding errors.Use symbolic calculations whenever possible.Perform calculations with increased accuracy.Compare symbolic and numeric results.Draw a function or expression.

Consider a centered finite principal difference approximation of the first derivative of a smooth function

It is known that many, if we see a plot of \$textloglog\$ errors against you, we will have an increment after a certain actual value of \$h approximately 10^-5\$ Any error starts with an increase. I wanted to understand that such methods can be predicted.

I showed this answer from user @LutzLehmann, from which he wrote that since functional opinions generate noise, the error is usually a combination of an approximation error and this noise, i.e. a factor like

Where \$M_0\$ is the absolute value in one function evaluation and \$M_3\$ is the absolute value in the next derivative function evaluation.

Then he writes that the error will be minimal if \$h approx mu^frac13\$(i.e., about \$10^-5\$ if \$mu\$ can run a double-precision machine), under the general assumption that \$M_0\$ and \$M_3\$ are certainly about the same. I can’t figure out “how” a particular person thinks I like it: I mean, let’sLet’s not start with \$M_0=M_3=M\$. Then we have an error like \$\$M(mu + h^3)\$\$

If I want to successfully minimize, I would say that \$h^3 is equal to – mu\$, which means that this step is negative, which doesn’t make sense. Why didn’t he have it without a signature?
