It's an extremely tough problem, but you might be interested in the
following papers:

"Static Analyses of the Precision of Floating-Point Operations",
Eric Goubault, Static Analysis Symposium 2001.

"Propagation of Roundoff Errors in Finite Precision Computations: a
Semantics Approach", Matthieu Martel, European Symposium on
Programming 2002.
