On a Theoretical Justification of the Choice of Epsilon-Inflation in PASCAL-XSC

On a Theoretical Justification of the Choice of Epsilon-Inflation in PASCAL-XSC In many interval computation methods, if we cannot guarantee a solution within a given interval, it often makes sense to "inflate" this interval a little bit. There exist many different "inflation" methods. The authors of PASCAL-XSC, after empirically comparing the behavior of different inflation methods, decided to implement the formula [x-,x+]ε = [(1 + ε)x- - ε · x+, (1 + ε)x+ - ε · x-]. A natural question is: Is this choice really optimal (in some reasonable sense), or is it only an empirical approximation to the truly optimal choice? http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Reliable Computing Springer Journals
