Optimal Multiplication of G-intervals

  • Lubomir V. KolevEmail author


Recently, a new formula for multiplication of dependent G-intervals (intervals in affine form) has been proposed. This formula has been shown to lead to smaller overestimation of the product interval in comparison with other previously known results. An alternative multiplication rule is suggested in this paper which yields no overestimation, if certain simple monotonicity conditions are valid.
