comment Is computer science a branch of mathematics?
@sashang: It is difficult to say one way or another if this is an oversimplification or not without establishing a rigorous and unambiguous definition of the word "branch" as it is applied by the OP's question. If you can provide such a definition, I can respond to your "oversimplification" claim more adequately, one way or another.

@SpYk3HH: The point is that the lines are blurred nonetheless, in spite of what most people believe of both subjects.

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.
