## Comentarios

El valor de la Epsilon propiedad refleja el valor positivo más pequeño Double que es significativo en operaciones numéricas o comparaciones cuando el valor de la Double instancia es cero.The value of the Epsilon property reflects the smallest positive Double value that is significant in numeric operations or comparisons when the value of the Double instance is zero. Por ejemplo, el código siguiente muestra que cero y Epsilon se consideran valores distintos, mientras que cero y la mitad del valor de Epsilon se consideran iguales.For example, the following code shows that zero and Epsilon are considered to be unequal values, whereas zero and half the value of Epsilon are considered to be equal.

public static void Main()

double[] values = { 0, Double.Epsilon, Double.Epsilon * .5 };

Más concretamente, el formato de punto flotante consta de un signo, una mantisa de 52 bits o una mantisa y un exponente de 11 bits.More precisely, the floating point format consists of a sign, a 52-bit mantissa or significand, and an 11-bit exponent. Como se muestra en el ejemplo siguiente, cero tiene un exponente de-1022 y una mantisa de 0.As the following example shows, zero has an exponent of -1022 and a mantissa of 0. Epsilon tiene un exponente de-1022 y una mantisa de 1.Epsilon has an exponent of -1022 and a mantissa of 1. Esto significa que Epsilon es el menor valor positivo Double mayor que cero y representa el menor valor posible y el menor posible incremento para un Double cuyo exponente es-1022.This means that Epsilon is the smallest positive Double value greater than zero and represents the smallest possible value and the smallest possible increment for a Double whose exponent is -1022.

Sin embargo, la Epsilon propiedad no es una medida general de precisión del Double tipo; solo se aplica a Double las instancias que tienen un valor de cero o un exponente de-1022.However, the Epsilon property is not a general measure of precision of the Double type; it applies only to Double instances that have a value of zero or an exponent of -1022.

Nota

El valor de la Epsilon propiedad no es equivalente a la máquina épsilon, que representa el límite superior del error relativo debido al redondeo en aritmética de punto flotante.The value of the Epsilon property is not equivalent to machine epsilon, which represents the upper bound of the relative error due to rounding in floating-point arithmetic.

El valor de esta constante es 94065645841247e e-324.The value of this constant is 4.94065645841247e-324.

Dos números de punto flotante aparentemente equivalentes podrían no compararse igual debido a las diferencias en sus dígitos menos significativos.Two apparently equivalent floating-point numbers might not compare equal because of differences in their least significant digits. Por ejemplo, la expresión de C#, `(double)1/3 == (double)0.33333` , no se compara igual porque la operación de división en el lado izquierdo tiene precisión máxima, mientras que la constante del lado derecho solo es precisa para los dígitos especificados.For example, the C# expression, `(double)1/3 == (double)0.33333`, does not compare equal because the division operation on the left side has maximum precision while the constant on the right side is precise only to the specified digits. Si crea un algoritmo personalizado que determina si dos números de punto flotante se pueden considerar iguales, no se recomienda basar el algoritmo en el valor de la Epsilon constante para establecer el margen absoluto aceptable de diferencia para que los dos valores se consideren iguales.If you create a custom algorithm that determines whether two floating-point numbers can be considered equal, we do not recommend that you base your algorithm on the value of the Epsilon constant to establish the acceptable absolute margin of difference for the two values to be considered equal. (Normalmente, ese margen de diferencia es muchas veces mayor que Epsilon ). Para obtener información sobre cómo comparar dos valores de punto flotante de precisión doble, vea Double y Equals(Double) .(Typically, that margin of difference is many times greater than Epsilon.) For information about comparing two double-precision floating-point values, see Double and Equals(Double).

### Notas de la plataformaPlatform Notes

En los sistemas ARM, el valor de la Epsilon constante es demasiado pequeño para que se detecte, por lo que es igual a cero.On ARM systems, the value of the Epsilon constant is too small to be detected, so it equates to zero. En su lugar, puede definir un valor de épsilon alternativo que sea igual a 2.2250738585072014 E-308.You can define an alternative epsilon value that equals 2.2250738585072014E-308 instead.
