  Interval (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intervals using the round brackets (or) as in the general interval (a,b) or specific examples (-1,3) and (2,4) are called open intervals and the endpoints are not included in the set.
Intervals using both square and round brackets [ and) or (and ] as in the general intervals (a,b] and [a,b) or specific examples [-1,3) and (2,4] are called half-closed intervals or half-open intervals.
Interval arithmetic, also called interval mathematics, interval analysis, and interval computation, is being developed by mathematicians since the 1950s and 1960s as an approach to putting bounds on rounding errors in mathematical computation and thus obtaining very reliable results.

Loosely speaking, an interval is a part of the real numbers that start at one number and stops at another number.

 Presentation of Modal Interval Analysis
From an interval point of view the common alternative of computing with single numbers is able to provide only an indication of the true result that could be reached using interval calculus: only a single value pointing somewhere inside the complete interval result.
For a rational function f(x1,...,xn) a rational interval extension fR(X1,...,Xn) is defined through the sintactic tree of f, with their numerical arguments x1,...,xn replaced by the interval arguments X1,...,Xn and with the numerical operations of f replaced by their corresponding interval operations, which in case of approximate computations must be externally rounded.

Interval Tournaments A directed graph is an interval digraph if to each vertex v there corresponds an ordered pair of intervals (S(v),T(v)) such that u beats v if and only if the intersection of S(u) and T(v) is nonempty.
We characterize the tournaments that are interval digraphs via the existence of a large transitive subtournament and by forbidden subtournaments.
A bipartite graph is an interval bigraph if to each vertex there corresponds an interval such that vertices are adjacent if and only if their corresponding intervals intersect and each vertex belongs to a different partite set.

 Interval Computations | Lambda the Ultimate
But I mention AD not as a competitor for interval arithemtic, but as a neat twist on interval arithmetic that has formal similarity and a similar implementation, but is useful for a slightly different, but related, class of problem.
And interval arithmetic can be combined with AD to give optimisation algorithms that are both efficient and are guaranteed not to miss optima because you can guarantee, say, that in a certain volume, the derivative of your objective function never reaches zero.
Interval arithmetic is, quite simply, one of the easiest ways to let your program automatically analyze its own algorithms, and provide truly rigorous results.

For a purely software interval implementation, the simple system described in this paper is a reasonable compromise between narrow interval results for special edge cases, and speed for cases that occur more frequently.
In interval mathematics, the distinction between constants and variables is even more important than it is in point mathematics.
Following this convention prevents an interval implementation from constructing narrow intervals when, for example, 0.1 is encountered in a double precision interval expression.

The use of interval mathematics in a knowledge-based system for electromagnetic device design is discussed.
It is shown that, through interval propagation, the expert designer can observe the consequences of imposing interval bounds on parameters so that the nonexpert user can then receive advice regarding the legal range of design specifications.
Interval techniques have proved to be valuable at various stages of the design process as a knowledge integrity tool and as an aid to end-users of the CAD (computer-aided design) system.

The aquifer transmissivity was represented by interval and the width of the resulting hydraulic head interval was used as a measure of uncertainty due to imprecise input parameter.
Analysis of the results indicated that degree of uncertainty associated with the predicted hydraulic head was found to increase as the width of the input parameter interval increased.
This approach was compared to the stochastic technique and the results indicated that the distribution of the width of the interval along the flow direction is similar to the hydraulic head variance distribution resulted from Monte Carlo simulation approach.
