Numerical Analysis 1 EE, NCKU Tien-Hao Chang (Darby Chang)

2
In the previous slide Why numerical methods? –differences between human and computer –a very simple numerical method What is algorithm? –definition and components –three problems and three algorithms Convergence –compare rate of convergence 2

3
In this slide Error (motivation) Floating point number system –difference to real number system –problem of roundoff Introduced/propagated error Focus on numerical methods –three bugs 3

4
Let’s start from error Numerical methods are generally designed to determine approximation solutions 3 categories of error types –modeling: made when you decide the algorithm –discretization/truncation: conversion from continuous to discrete and/or truncation of an infinite series –roundoff/data: not due to the formulation of a numerical method, caused by the data representation (in computer) 4

9
Restriction of d 1 9 d 1 must not be zero (except when the number being represented is 0 )

10
Floating point vs. real number Discrete vs. continuous –continuous means that between any two numbers, there are infinitely many other numbers Finite vs. infinite –number of element and range of values –a floating point number system contains its smallest/largest element underflow/overflow 10

11
Any Questions? 11

12
Floating point vs. real number Nonuniform vs. uniform –real numbers are uniformly distributed –in a floating point number system, the elements **** *** **** are more closely spaced think about the difference between two adjacent elements while the exponent changes 12 hint

Floating point vs. real number Nonuniform vs. uniform –real numbers are uniformly distributed –in a floating point number system, the elements near the zero are more closely spaced think about the difference between two adjacent elements while the exponent changes 14

15
Floating point system is 15 discrete, finite and nonuniform

16
Roundoff error When the number is outside the system Select an element to represent the number –chop –round A number to its floating point equivalent – y → fl(y) 16

24
Machine precision/epsilon The error bound is independent of the number, y It depends on –base ( β ) –the number of digits ( k ) The bound is a function of the hardware implementation Cause of roundoff error 24

28
So far, 28 we talked about floating point number systems in abstract

29
Then, 29 what systems are we likely to encounter in practice?

30
Real floating point system 1970s –begun to develop a standard binary floating point numbers to eliminate inconsistencies 1985 –IEEE –Binary Floating Point Arithmetic Standard 754 The IEEE Standard –F(2,24,-125,128), single precision –F(2,53,-1021,1024), double precision 30

31
IEEE standard single precision 31

32
Mathematics on the Computer: Floating Point Arithmetic

33
Motivation Floating point arithmetic stands for the mathematics on the computer, but why should we know that? The IEEE Standard – 5.96 x –seems pretty accurate However, 33

34
Numerical methods 34 perform a sequence of calculations on computer, where each operation introduces some roundoff error

35
35 when they are accumulated

36
Typical arithmetic Three steps –operand → its floating point equivalent –the exact arithmetic –result → its floating point equivalent 36

37
37

38
Not associative ( )+23.21= = ( )= =24.88 We should perform the arithmetic in ********* order to obtain the most accurate result 38 question

39
All 39 intermediate results have been rounded

40
Any Questions? 40

41
Not associative ( )+23.21= = ( )= =24.88 We should perform the arithmetic in ********* order to obtain the most accurate result 41

42
Not associative ( )+23.21= = ( )= =24.88 We should perform the arithmetic in Ascending order to obtain the most accurate result 42

43
In FP arithmetic, 43 always notice the number of significant digits and the least significant bits

44
Not distributive 44

45
45 Accumulation of roundoff error

46

47
Introduced/propagated error 47

48
Propagated error 48 can be large even if the introduced error is small

49
A notation in the analysis 49

50
In multiplication 50

51
In division 51

52
The relative error propagates slowly The absolute error can grow rapidly, when multiplying by a large number or dividing by a small number 52

53
Propagated error 53 in addition and subtraction

54
In addition and subtraction 54

55
Absolute vs. relative error Multiplication and division may result large absolute error Addition and subtraction may result large relative error –more crucial –cancellation error two nearly equal numbers are subtracted Algorithms should avoid the subtraction of nearly equal numbers 55

56
56 Recall that

57
Should be prevented Numerical methods are generally designed to determine approximation solutions 3 categories of error types –modeling: made when you decide the algorithm –discretization/truncation: conversion from continuous to discrete and/or truncation of an infinite series –roundoff/data: not due to the formulation of a numerical method, caused by the data representation (in computer) 57

58
To prevent, 58 we need to know the floating point system

78
Cascade of effects Cancellation error led to a small pivot element A small pivot led to a large multiplier A large and then led to loss of significant digits 78

81
Values of a function Even evaluating a function can prove difficult f(x) = e x – cosx – x, where x → 0 – e x → 0 – cosx → 0 81

87
More precision These bugs are under F(10,4,-,-) Just add more precision –FORTRAN REAL*8 → REAL*16 –C/C++ float → double Not always work –Introduced by Rump and reconsidered by Aberth, Precise Numerical Methods Using C++,

92
