Abstract:

Triplex arithmetic is a variation of interval arithmetic in which a main or rounded value is computed in addition to the end-points of the containing interval. The main value may be considered, depending on the application, to be the most probable result of the computation, with the interval bounds indicating the possible error. This paper describes an implementation of Triplex arithmetic in single and multiple precision. The implementation is based on the Augment precompiler to obtain an easily used package. Author
