I am porting some python code to java but got different results.
after long time debugging, I found the reason is numpy's result is not
the same as java(even the result of raw python codes)
one case is:
vector:[0.446141, 0.10414999999999996](that's not accurate)
it's binary representation of IEEE754 is:
dot product by java(or raw python) of x1*x1+x2*x2 is:
but the result of pynum: x*x.T is:
the last bit of mantissa is one difference.
I don't floating points always hard to make sure to get same result
in different environment(not only hardware but also software such as
compiler optimizing and reordering)
But I still want to know why, thanks.
