In a previous paper, we introduced a generic solution to the problem of data degeneracy in geometric algorithms. The scheme is simple to use: algorithms qualifying under our requirements just have to use a prescribed blackbox for polynomial evaluation in order to achieve a symbolic perturbation of data. In this paper, we introduce the concept of an infinitesimal perturbation and show that our method is consistent relative to such perturbations.
