Stability of rounded off inverses under iteration
Abstract: Let f be a monotone and strictly convex (or concave) function on a real interval and let g be the inverse function. Let . For a real valued function and N a positive integer let denote the rounding of to N significant figures. Let , the composition of and . It is shown that
