function s_hat = csum(x) % CSUM Sum of elements using a compensated summation algorithm. % % For large vectors, the native sum command in Matlab does % not appear to use a compensated summation algorithm which % can cause significant roundoff errors. % % This code implements a variant of Kahan's compensated % summation algorithm which often takes about twice as long, % but produces more accurate sums when the number of % elements is large. -David Gleich % % Also see SUM. % % % Matlab csum() example: % clear all % csumv = 0; % while ~csumv % v = randn(13e6,1); % rsumv = abs(sum(v) - sum(v(end:-1:1))); % disp(['rsumv = ' num2str(rsumv,'%18.16f')]); % [~, idx] = sort(abs(v),'descend'); % x = v(idx); % csumv = abs(csum(x) - csum(x(end:-1:1))); % disp(['csumv = ' num2str(csumv,'%18.16e')]); % end s_hat=0; e=0; for i=1:numel(x) s_hat_old = s_hat; y = x(i) + e; s_hat = s_hat_old + y; e = (s_hat_old - s_hat) + y; %calculate difference first (Higham) end return
