# A Method for Outer Interval Solution of Systems of Linear Equations Depending Linearly on Interval Parameters

## Abstract

Consider the systems of linear interval equations whose coefficients are linear functions of interval parameters. Such systems, called parametrized systems of linear interval equations, are encountered in many practical problems, e.g in electrical engineering and structure mechanics. A direct method for computing a tight enclosure for the solution set is proposed in this paper. It is proved that for systems with real matrix and interval right-hand vector the method generates the hull of the solution set. For such systems an explicit formula for the hull is also given. Finally some numerical examples are provided to demonstrate the usefulness of the method in structure mechanics.
