Description

This undergraduate and postgraduate text will familiarise readers with interval arithmetic and related tools to gain reliable and validated results and logically correct decisions for a variety of geometric computations plus the means for alleviating the effects of the errors. It also considers computations on geometric point-sets, which are neither robust nor reliable in processing with standard methods. The authors provide two effective tools for obtaining correct results: (a) interval arithmetic, and (b) ESSA the new powerful algorithm which improves many geometric computations and makes them rounding error free.

Key Features

  • Familiarises the reader with interval arithmetic and related tools to gain reliable and validated results and logically correct decisions for a variety of geometric computations
  • Provides two effective methods for obtaining correct results in interval arithmetic and ESSA
