Rounding Errors in Algebraic Processes
In this book I have attempted to present a number of simple analyses in a uniform manner. This has made it necessary to be somewhat selective in the choice of material but it is hoped that, in spite of this, the analyses are reasonably representative. It is my hope that in this way the ideas will be readily assimilated by anyone who can understand the techniques which are analysed.
