This report is concerned with the quality of the computed numerical solutions of mathematical problems. We give an introduction to ideas that are important in understanding and measuring the quality of computed solutions. In particular we review the ideas of condition, stability and error analysis, and their realisation in numerical software. A number of illustrative examples are given.
