4 it is clear that interval arithmetic is an extension of real arithmetic. 4 that the interval addition and interval multiplication are both commutative and associative. That is, if A, B, and C ∈ I ( ), then it follows that A + B = B + A, A · B = B · A, (A + B) + C = A + (B + C), (commutativity) (A · B) · C = A · (B · C). (associativity) The real numbers 0 and 1 are identities for interval addition and multiplication, respectively. That is, for any A ∈ I ( ), we have 0+A=A+0=A 1 · A = A · 1 = A.

The solution set of the equations ax = b with a ∈ [1, 3] and b ∈ [−1, 4] is given by { x = b/a| a ∈ [1, 3], b ∈ [−1, 4]} = [−1, 4]/[1, 3] = [−1, 4] which is different from the unique interval solution X = [− 13 , 43 ] of the equation AX = B. Note that [− 13 , 43 ] ⊂ [−1, 4]. In general, one can show that X ⊆ B/A as follows: if z ∈ X, then there exists a ∈ A and b ∈ B such that az = b ⇒ z = b/a ∈ B/A. ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ “k” — 2011/11/22 — 10:14 — page 38 — ✐ 38 ✐ NUMBER SYSTEM AND ERRORS The starting point for the application of interval analysis was, in retrospect, the desire in numerical mathematics to be able to execute algorithms on digital computers capturing all the round-off errors automatically and therefore to calculate strict error bounds automatically.

Input data to the program should be a function f (x), a, b, and the error tolerance . 5, 0]. What does your program do if the interval is reduced to [−1, 0]? 2. The roots of the polynomial p(x) = (x − 1)(x − 2) . . (x − 20) − 10−8 x19 are highly sensitive to small alterations in their coefficients. m to find this root.
