The use of interval methods to solve numerical problems has been very
limited. Some of the reasons for this are the lack of easy access to software
and the lack of knowledge of the potential benefits. Until numerical analysts
and others become generally familiar with interval methods, their use will
remain limited. Mathematica is one way to educate potential users
regarding the usefulness of interval methods. This paper examines some
of the ways that intervals can be used in Mathematica.
