This module contains procedures and generic interfaces for computing the previous/next integer exponent for the given base that yields a number smaller/larger than the absolute input value.
For a given number \(x\) and base
\(b\), the next integer exponent \(p\) is defined as the smallest integer such that,
\begin{equation} b^{(p - 1)} < |x| \leq b^p ~~~ \forall x > 0 ~, \end{equation}
