I stumbled over the following weird behavior when comparing floating-point numbers close to 1.0:
qq = 1.0 + 60.0 $MachineEpsilon;
qq > 1.0
yields False. However,
qq - 1
which is far above $MachineEpsilon = 2.22045*10^-16 (the smallest number eps satisfying (1.0 + eps > 1.0)==True when using 8-byte floating point numbers). Changing the first command to
qq = 1.0 + 65.0 $MachineEpsilon;
Leads to the expected behavior of (qq > 1.0) == True.
I'm running Mathematica 10.4.0.0 under Windows on an Intel i5.
