Numerical Stability Amplification or decay of numerical errors A numerical method is stable if error incurred at one stage of the process do not tend to magnify at later stages Ill-conditioned differential equation -- numerical errors will be magnified regardless of numerical method Stiff differential equation -- require extremely small step size to achieve accurate results
