Title: Numerical Errors in DNS: Total Run-Time Error

Abstract

Understanding numerical errors in simulations is critical for many reasons. First and foremost, one must some estimate concerning the reliability of the final result. Simply put, numerical errors add up over time and in most cases the increase is a linear process. It is quite possible that running a code for a very long time can lead to a solution which is completely meaningless even though it may look reasonable. This manuscript will begin a technical discussion on these issues.
