Scilab take cares with your numbers.
While most mathematic books deals with exact formulas,
Scilab uses algorithms which are specifically designed for
-computers.
+computers.
The difficulty is generated by the fact that, while
the mathematics treat with \emph{real} numbers, the
computer deals with their \emph{floating point representations}.
+This is the difference between the
+\emph{naive}, mathematical, approach, and the \emph{numerical},
+floating-point aware, implementation.
In this article, we will show examples of these problems by
using the following theoric and experimental approach.
