  • $\begingroup$ @user10354138, the question is different but yes it is related to the question you referred. $\endgroup$ – Tushar Jun 21 at 12:14
  • $\begingroup$ I'd say that L4 is executed at most (number of mantissa bits) times, hence the erros accumulated in summing up $y$ are up to that times $\epsilon$, so e.g. with IEEE doubles, the relative error is $<52\cdot 2^{-52}\approx 1.2\cdot 10^{-14}$ $\endgroup$ – Hagen von Eitzen Jun 21 at 12:22
  • $\begingroup$ @HagenvonEitzen, thanks. And how are you so good at maths? $\endgroup$ – Tushar Jun 21 at 12:24
