Updated package description
Line 1: Line 1: −
The GNU Octave [http://octave.sourceforge.net/interval/ interval package] provides data types and fundamental operations for real valued interval arithmetic based on the common floating-point format “binary64” a. k. a. double-precision.  It aims to be standard compliant with the (upcoming) [http://standards.ieee.org/develop/project/1788.html IEEE 1788] and therefore implements the ''set-based'' interval arithmetic flavor.  '''Interval arithmetic''' produces mathematically proven numerical results.

The GNU Octave [http://octave.sourceforge.net/interval/ interval package] for real-valued interval arithmetic.
 +
 
 +
The interval package provides data types and operations for
 +
verified computing.  It can be used to handle uncertainties, estimate
 +
arithmetic errors and produce reliable results. Also it can help find
 +
guaranteed solutions to numerical problems. Thanks to GNU MPFR many
 +
arithmetic operations are provided with best possible accuracy. The
 +
implementation of intervals in inf-sup format is based on interval boundaries
 +
represented by binary64 numbers and is standard conforming to the  
 +
(upcoming) standard for interval arithmetic
 +
[http://standards.ieee.org/develop/project/1788.html IEEE 1788].
