2018514 1. Say we have the floatingpoint system ( 2, 3, − 1, 2) and we want to find machine epsilon. According to my textbook, this can be found as ϵ m = β 1 − t = 2 1 − 3 = 0.25. However, my textbook also says that ϵ m represents the distance between number 1 and the nearest floatingpoint

c  Floating point arithmetic and machine epsilon 
2013417 float epsilon = 1.084202e19 Intermediate operations are done with the greatest precision (due to the value of FLT_EVAL_METHOD), so this result seems legit. However, this: // 2.0 is a double literal while ((float) (1 + floatEps / 2.0) != 1) floatEps /= 2; gives this output, which is the right one: float epsilon = 1.192093e07 but this one:

floating point  How to calculate machine epsilon ...
202146 In general, if you look at a machine number with base b, mantissa m (and exponent e ), you can define. e p s := b 1 − m 2. To your example: You would probably represent 4 normalized as ( 0.10000000) 2 ⋅ 2 3. The next number 4 + 1 32 is then represented as ( 0.10000001) 2 ⋅ 2 3, i.e. you have m = 8 and thus e p s = 2 − 8.

Theory behind floating point comparisons  1.74.0
2021416 half_epsilon = half of the 'machine epsilon value' for the appropriate floating point type FPT [9]. Conversion to binary presentation, sadly, does not have such requirement. So we can't assume that float (1.1) is close to the real number 1.1 with tolerance half_epsilon for float (though for 11./10 we can). Nonarithmetic operations either do not have a predicted upper limit relative rounding errors.

The Spacing of Binary FloatingPoint Numbers 
2015315 Machine Epsilon. I highlighted two values in the first table; these are known as machine epsilon in IEEE binary floatingpoint. Machine epsilon is determined by the precision; it equals 2 1p. For singleprecision, it is 223; for doubleprecision, it is 252. Machine epsilon is just the gap size in [1,2).
