I recently stumbled upon a question on Cody (#1874), which asked the user to input the smallest in MATLAB. As per my knowledge, realmin was supposed to return the smallest number in MATLAB, however that number is the smallest normalized floating point number. According to this thread of Stack overflow, it says eps(0) returns the smallest denormal number available in MATLAB.
However, my question is how eps(0) is denormal?
> realmin returns 2.2251e-308, where as eps(0) returns 4.9407e-324
