About stdlib...
We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.
The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.
When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, wellwritten, studied, documented, tested, measured, and highquality code out there.
To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!
FLOAT32_EPS
Difference between one and the smallest value greater than one that can be represented as a singleprecision floatingpoint number.
Epsilon is defined as
where b
is the radix (base) and p
is the precision (number of radix bits in the significand). For singleprecision floatingpoint numbers, b
is 2
and p
is 24
.
Installation
npm install @stdlib/constantsfloat32eps
Usage
var FLOAT32_EPS = require( '@stdlib/constantsfloat32eps' );
FLOAT32_EPS
Difference between one and the smallest value greater than one that can be represented as a singleprecision floatingpoint number.
var bool = ( FLOAT32_EPS === 1.1920928955078125e7 );
// returns true
Examples
var abs = require( '@stdlib/mathbasespecialabs' );
var max = require( '@stdlib/mathbasespecialmax' );
var float64ToFloat32 = require( '@stdlib/numberfloat64basetofloat32' );
var randu = require( '@stdlib/randombaserandu' );
var FLOAT32_EPS = require( '@stdlib/constantsfloat32eps' );
var bool;
var a;
var b;
var i;
function isApprox( a, b ) {
var delta;
var tol;
delta = float64ToFloat32( abs( a  b ) );
tol = float64ToFloat32( FLOAT32_EPS * max( abs( a ), abs( b ) ) );
return ( delta <= tol );
}
for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
a = float64ToFloat32( randu()*10.0 );
b = float64ToFloat32( a + (randu()*2.0e6)  1.0e6 );
bool = isApprox( a, b );
console.log( '%d %s approximately equal to %d', a, ( bool ) ? 'is' : 'is not', b );
}
