Hi, Friends(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How to numerically do with step function? I mean, this function is very sensitive to the precision. For example, f(x) is a step function. When x is greater than some very small positive number, \delta, the numerical answer is 1, which agrees with the expected value. But when x < \delta, the computer cannot tell it from 0, therefore the numerical result, f(x), equals to ZERO, which is not what I want.

Thanks for help
