Editorial Dear colleagues, On February 24–26, 1999, the first Workshop on Interval Applications to Systems and Control with special emphasis on Modal Interval Analysis, MISC’99, was held in Girona, Spain. 28 papers were presented at the workshop, covering the following topics related to intervals: mathematical research, applications to computational geometry, interval simulations, fuzzy systems, applications to robotics, stability analysis and control systems design. In this special issue, only a reduced selection of the papers presented at MISC’99 is included. Those who may be interested in the other presented papers, please ask us for the proceedings volume. The selected papers represent current research lines on intervals and some of their applications, dealing with the main shortcomings of classical intervals: the lack of fundamental algebraic properties and the computation of interval extensions of continuous functions. The first paper corresponds to the tutorial keynote talk given by Professor Miguel A. Sainz, University of Girona, Spain. The paper summarizes the most important results and features of Modal Interval Analysis. The second paper, by S. Markov, deals with the algebraic properties of interval vectors. In her paper, E. Popova presents distributive relation on multiplication and addition of generalized proper and improper intervals.
