Affine arithmetic: concepts and applications

Jorge Stolfi | de Figueiredo, Luiz

**Keywords: **
interval arithmetic; range analysis; dependency problem

Affine arithmetic is a model for self-validated numerical computation that
affine arithmetic keeps track of first-order correlations
between computed and input quantities.
We explain the main concepts in affine arithmetic
and it handles the dependency problem in standard interval arithmetic.
We also describe some of its applications.
