This paper deals with the empirical convergence speed of inclusion functions applied in interval methods for global optimization. According to our experience the natural interval extension of a given function can be as good as a usual quadratically convergent inclusion function, and although centered forms are in general only of second-order, they can perform as one of larger convergence order. These facts indicate that the theoretical convergence order should not be the only indicator of the quality of an inclusion function, it would be better to know which inclusion function can be used most efficiently in concrete instances. For this reason we have investigated the empirical convergence speed of the usual inclusion functions on some test functions.
