Question for Joe Horn, Dieter, and other
Considering real numbers that are very close to integer. That is a real number R is close to an integer I:
R = I + e Where e = +/ a small number like 1e8 or even less. If I represent R using complex number notation (I, e), would the use of complex math operations (adding, subtracting, etc.) between two nearintegervalue floatingpoint numbers, yield more accurate results than straight forward operations between these same numbers? That is, for example: R1 * R1 is less accurate than? (I1, e1) * (I2, e2) Namir
