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.
