## Refactoring #1541

Is there need for a tolerance_factor? Probably not.

Are small numbers meant on a linear or a logarithmic scale? Is 1e-100 - 0 a small relative difference?

Why isn't get_relative_difference(a,b) symmetric in a<->b?

What are the consequences for simulations and fits?

-By By the way: areAlmostEqual is used only once in the new Fit/ directory, and should therefore be replaced by a local routine, so that Numeric.h can be moved to Core/.- Core/.
