Expert Answer:

Delta before a digit signifies the absolute error in that particular digit. It is the difference in the true value and experimental value of the digit.
If m is the measured digit, then Δm is the absolute error in the measurement of m.
In higher mathematics and physics, delta before a digit also signifies a small change in that particular digit. This change may be with respect to time, space or any other physical quantity.
