Said Gamil Ahmed Sayed Ahmed, Hossein Jafari, Mukhtar Yagoub Youssif and Roberto Datja
In this chapter, we will focus on the meaning of error and try to define the
errors. Different and major types of errors, sources of errors, and efforts to reduce the
errors will be introduced. Also, we will show how a small error in the beginning of
computation will increase at the end.
Absolute error, Error definition, Error sources, Functions of several
variables, Random errors, Relative error, Systematic errors, Types of error.
