20 Sets the relative floating point (double) arithmetic precision.
21 By default the precision values are obtained from the standard functions
22 std::numeric_limits<double>::epsilon.
23 The values can optionally be computed directly using the ComputePrecision()
24 member function. For a IEEE standard floating point arithmetic the computed values and
25 the one from std::numeric_limits<double>::epsilon are the same.
26
27 SetPrecision() method can instead be used to override Minuit's own determination,
28 when the user knows that the {FCN} function Value is not calculated to
29 the nominal machine accuracy.
