This may be classified as an error introduced by the numerical method, there is no mistake involved and the computer is operating properly; mistakes occur in programming, coding, data transcription, and operating, thus, usually humans make mistakes, e.g., assigning a wrong address when coding a problem; malfunctions occur in computers and are due to physical limitations on the properties of materials. An error is sometimes considered to be the differential margin by which a controlled unit deviates from its target value.
