I am writing the code involved in numerical computation. When I need a
float epsilon similar to FLT_EPS in C, eps in matlab, I fail to find
the equivalent in python. Could somebody here can give me some advices?
Have you searched the documentation? I you can't find anything there,
you can always calculate it yourself. Epsilon is usually defined as
follows:
eps = 1.
while 1. + eps != 1.:
.... eps /= 2.
.... eps
1.1102230246251565e-16
Then some people actually multiply the above number by 2. In other
words (on my machine), eps is math.ldexp(1, -52). YMMV
