Computer reduction is one reason why many computer models of celestial mechanics exhibit chaotic behaviour. This makes the build-up of long-term prognoses of behaviour of small bodies in the Solar System more complicated. Utilizing stochastic variation in the initial conditions of the model within the accuracy of the computing system's bit grid we can smooth the influence of computer reduction and construct more valuable prognoses.
