Pagination or Media Count:
The nature of generated machine error in finite digital calculations is discussed. The arithmetic of range numbers is developed, and examples are given demonstrating the use of range arithmetic as a tool for automatic error analysis. A computer program is developed, utilizing the TYPE OTHER feature of FORTRAN-63 in conjunction with the CDC-1604 digital computer, which enables the user to perform automatic error analysis during computation, and a number of programs are presented using this feature.
