I am working with some extremely small p-values and I want to capture
the corresponding quantiles.
I see the help file it says:
'qnorm' is based on Wichura's algorithm AS 241 which provides
precise results up to about 16 digits.
What happen after the 16th digits?
If I am running R in a server 64-bit, can that improve the chances that
beyond 16th digits to still have precision?
