  • Use the standard inf and sup for the bounds of the interval.

  • Prefer ..._up and ..._dw to mark the rounding of functions and RoundUp and RoundDown for the modules. Crlibm was updated accordingly.

  • Rename Interval as Interval_base as it conflicted with the Interval module in compiler libs (provoking a collision when this library was used in the REPL).

  • Add functions mag (magnitude) and mig (mignitude), mid (midpoint), singleton (creation of intervals containing a single value), is_singleton, diam (diameter), belong (x ∈ I), floor, ceil and hypot.

  • Renamed Interval_*.t as Interval_*.interval as to not import the short type t into the namespace (but still have access to the record fields).

  • Add functions RoundDown.dist and RoundUp.dist (downward/upward rounded distance).

  • Use Dune 2.0.

1.5.1 2019-05-01

  • Fix the implementation of exponentiation (xⁿ, n ∈ ℤ).

  • Deprecate the size… functions in favor of width….

  • Add functions mag (magnitude) and mig (mignitude).

1.5 2019-04-06

  • The library is now organized as 4 packages:

    • interval_base defines the module Interval that groups the functions that work on any IEEE-754 processor and offers basic module signatures;

    • interval_intel: defines a module Interval_intel using assembly instructions on Intel Processors;

    • interval_crlibm: defines a module Interval_crlibm using the library CRlibm to evaluate standard functions (sometimes a bit slower but proved enclosures in contrast to the Intel package for which enclosures are not always 100% correct).

    • interval: a meta-package that install all above three.

  • Interval.T is a module signature to form the base of what is expected of any interval package.

  • New functions: invx (extended inverse), cancelminus, cancelplus, inter inter_exn, low, high.

  • New binary relations equal, =, subset, <=, >=, precedes, interior, <, >, strict_precedes, disjoint.

  • New predicates is_bounded, is_entire.

  • New constants I.half_pi ∋ π/2 and I.entire for [-∞, +∞].

  • Interval_crlibm: functions expm1, log1p, log2, log10, cospi, sinpi, tanpi, acospi, asinpi, atanpi, not present in the Intel version.

  • The module I.U also restores inequality relations.

  • Speed and documentation improvements.

1.4 2018-03-01

  • Improved interface for the Interval library by using sub-modules and standard mathematical names. In particular, all operations — including infix operators — are in a sub-module I which can conveniently be used to introduce local scopes after issuing open Interval.

  • Improved pretty-printing functions allowing to pass the format of the interval bounds.

  • The library functions now signal errors by exceptions Division_by_zero and Domain_error that are local to Interval.

  • The Fpu module has been redesigned: the rounding up or down of functions is controlled by the sub-module (Low or High) to which they belong. This allows for natural expressions such as Low.(x**2. +. 2. *. x +. 1.).

  • Jbuilder/dune is used to compile and install the library.

  • TravisCI and AppVeyor continuous integration ensure the library works on a variety of OCaml versions and platforms.
