Interval

FilledSmallSquare Interval[min, max] represents the range of values between min and max.

FilledSmallSquare Interval[, , , , ... ] represents the union of the ranges to , to , ....

FilledSmallSquare You can perform arithmetic and other operations on Interval objects.

FilledSmallSquare Example: Interval[1, 6] + Interval[0, 2] LongRightArrow.

FilledSmallSquare Min[interval] and Max[interval] give the end points of an interval.

FilledSmallSquare For approximate machine- or arbitrary-precision numbers x, Interval[x] yields an interval reflecting the uncertainty in x.

FilledSmallSquare In operations on intervals that involve approximate numbers, Mathematica always rounds lower limits down and upper limits up.

FilledSmallSquare Interval can be generated by functions such as Limit.

FilledSmallSquare Relational operators such as Equal and Less yield explicit True or False results whenever they are given disjoint intervals.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 3.6.9.
