Euler's Method Global Error: How to calculate $C_1$ if $error = C_1 h$

My textbook claims that, for small step size $h$, Euler's method has a global error which is at most proportional to $h$ such that error $= C_1h$. It is then claimed that $C_1$ depends on the initial ...

Local vs global truncation error

I was reading about local and global truncation error, and, I must be honest, I'm not really getting the idea of the two and what's the difference. Lets focus on the forward Euler method in ...
