# Linear Interval Equations: Midpoint Preconditioning May Produce a 100% Overestimation for Arbitrarily Narrow Data Even in Case n = 4

Linear Interval Equations: Midpoint Preconditioning May Produce a 100% Overestimation for... We construct a linear interval system Ax = b with a 4 × 4 interval matrix whose all proper interval coefficients (there are also some noninterval ones) are of the form [−ε, ε]. It is proved that for each ε > 0, the interval hull $$[\mathop{x}\limits_{-},\mathop{x}\limits^{-} ]$$ and interval hull of the midpoint preconditioned system $$[\mathop{x}\limits_{=},\mathop{x}\limits^{=} ]$$ satisfy $$\bar{x}_1 =0.6$$ and $${\mathop{x}\limits^{=}}_1 =1.2$$ , hence midpoint preconditioning produces a 100% overestimation of $$\bar{x}_1$$ independently of ε in this case. The example was obtained as a result of an extensive MATLAB search. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Reliable Computing Springer Journals
