is an option for various numerical operations which specifies how many effective digits of accuracy should be sought in the final result.
Basic Examples (2)
Approximate a numerical integral to at least 8 digits of accuracy:
Use precision (relative error) as the basis for error control in solving an ODE:
The relative error is small:
Without specifying the AccuracyGoal, the relative error is much larger:
