New "equals" method in "MathUtils"
----------------------------------

                 Key: MATH-264
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-264
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Gilles
            Priority: Minor


Hello.

The article

  http://www.cygnus-software.com/papers/comparingfloats/comparingfloats.htm

proposes a robust way of comparing floating-point numbers (look for "AlmostEqual2sComplement").
It provides an implementation (in C) for type "float", which should be adapted to take 2 "double"s
instead.

Gilles
