Interval arithmetic and computational science: performance considerations

Rendell, Alistair; Clarke, William; Milthorpe, Josh

Description

Interval analysis is an alternative to conventional floating-point computations that offers guaranteed error bounds. Despite this advantage, interval methods have not gained widespread use in large scale computational science applications. This paper addresses this issue from a performance perspective, comparing the performance of floating point and interval operations for some small computational kernels. Particularly attention is given to the Sun Fortran interval implementation, although the...[Show more]
