Interval Arithmetic

Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2091)


In this chapter the semantic interval extensions of the simplest elementary functions: the arithmetic operators (addition, multiplication, division), logarithm, exponential functions (including the hyperbolic functions), power function, and the trigonometric functions and their inverses, are considered, together with their most important properties and their arithmetic implementations.
