approximately_equal/3

Compares two numbers for approximate equality given an epsilon value using the de facto standard formula abs(Number1 - Number2) =< max(abs(Number1), abs(Number2)) * Epsilon. No type-checking.

Compilation flags:
static
Template:
approximately_equal(Number1,Number2,Epsilon)
Mode and number of proofs:
approximately_equal(+number,+number,+number) - zero_or_one

essentially_equal/3

Compares two numbers for essential equality given an epsilon value using the de facto standard formula abs(Number1 - Number2) =< min(abs(Number1), abs(Number2)) * Epsilon. No type-checking.

Compilation flags:
static
Template:
essentially_equal(Number1,Number2,Epsilon)
Mode and number of proofs:
essentially_equal(+number,+number,+number) - zero_or_one

tolerance_equal/4

Compares two numbers for close equality given relative and absolute tolerances using the de facto standard formula abs(Number1 - Number2) =< max(RelativeTolerance * max(abs(Number1), abs(Number2)), AbsoluteTolerance). No type-checking.

Compilation flags:
static
Template:
tolerance_equal(Number1,Number2,RelativeTolerance,AbsoluteTolerance)
Mode and number of proofs:
tolerance_equal(+number,+number,+number,+number) - zero_or_one

=~= / 2

Compares two floats (or lists of floats) for approximate equality using 100*epsilon for the absolute error and, if that fails, 99.999% accuracy for the relative error. Note that these precision values may not be adequate for all cases. No type-checking.

Compilation flags:
static
Template:
=~=(Float1,Float2)
Mode and number of proofs:
=~=(+number,+number) - zero_or_one
=~=(+list(number),+list(number)) - zero_or_one
