On an interval-arithmetic matrix method
Hansen and Smith have proposed a method for solving linear algebraic systems with interval coefficients which produces good results if the intervals are narrow. In this paper we show that the error of their method isO(W2), whereW is the width of the set of coefficients. The effects of round-off errors are not considered.
