When doing computation, there are different types of solutions: analytical, closed form, iterative, algorithmic, exact, approximate, ... (there are probably more than I just listed and please don't hesitate to add more)
- I was wondering what these types mean?
- Are analytical and closed form solutions the same thing?
- Are analytical solutions and closed form solutions necessarily exact?
- What is the opposite to these types: analytical, closed form, iterative, algorithmic, ...? For example, is algorithmic solution the opposite of analytical solution? Is iterative solution the opposite of closed form solution?
Thanks and regards!
