He says “Thou shalt not kill.”
And the first mention of eye for eye, tooth for tooth and life for life in the Bible is refering to the baby in a woman’s womb.
The most natural way to measure rounding error is in ulps. For example rounding to the nearest floating-point number corresponds to an error of less than or equal to .5 ulp. However, when analyzing the rounding error caused by various formulas, relative error is a better measure. A good illustration of this is the analysis in the section Theorem 9 . Since can overestimate the effect of rounding to the nearest floating-point number by the wobble factor of , error estimates of formulas will be tighter on machines with a small .
