Numerical Techniques for the Study of Long-Time Correlations [article]

Charles F. F. Karney
2004 arXiv   pre-print
In the study of long-time correlations extremely long orbits must be calculated. This may be accomplished much more reliably using fixed-point arithmetic.  ...  Use of this arithmetic on the Cray-1 computer is illustrated.  ...  Indeed if Q * has enough of the "interesting" properties of Q, we might tolerate quite a large error in a single iteration.  ...
