You are here: irt.org | FOLDOC | epsilon squared

<*jargon*> A quantity even smaller than epsilon, as small in
comparison to epsilon as epsilon is to something normal;
completely negligible. If you buy a supercomputer for a
million dollars, the cost of the thousand-dollar terminal to
go with it is epsilon, and the cost of the ten-dollar cable
to connect them is epsilon squared.

Compare lost in the underflow, lost in the noise.
