Do you seek a philosophical answer?

An elegantly succinct and informative answer using analogies from computer science! Kudos to you!

comment Incremental averageing
Can you elaborate on why precision errors are smaller in the second expression? Does the first expression contain a subtraction of nearly equal values?

comment Obtaining a bound on the differential operator
This almost makes sense. But the left hand side of the inequality uses $\frac{du}{dy}$, not $\left| \frac{du}{dy}\right|$. Unless it is somehow implicitly assumed that $\frac{du}{dy}>0$, I just can't see how we can conclude this.

comment Explaining the physical meaning of an eigenvalue in a real world problem
The question is about understanding and interpreting the eigenvalues/eigenvectors, not finding a method to solve the equation.
