relative error of value f1 in comparison with value f2 id defined as
rel_err = (f1-f2)/f1;
If we little simplify the situation
BOOST_CHECK_CLOSE_FRACTION( f1, f2, t )
checks that value f1 in comparison with value f2 do not exceed t.
In really it a one more step. it checks that relative error in both
direction (strong check) do not exceed t.
