Linear error propagation law and nonlinear functions. (English) Zbl 1513.62138

Summary: Linear error propagation law (LEPL) has been using frequently also for nonlinear functions. It can be adequate for an actual situation however it need not be so. It is useful to use some rule in order to recognize whether LEPL is admissible. The aim of the paper is to find such rule.
