is the smallest positive machine‐precision number that can be represented in normalized form on your computer system.
- Machine-precision numbers smaller in magnitude than $MinMachineNumber have less than $MachinePrecision digits of accuracy.
- Accuracy[0.] equals Accuracy[$MinMachineNumber]. »
- In the underlying binary representation, numbers smaller in magnitude than $MinMachineNumber have significands that do not start with a leading 1. »
