The Approximation Tower in Computational Science: Why Testing Scientific Software Is Difficult

Abstract : Numerical solutions of mathematical equations in scientific models are the result of several approximation steps. Konrad Hinsen uses a simulation of the solar system as an example for illustrating these approximations and explaining their role in the difficult problem of testing scientific software.
