IEEE 1788.1-2017 - IEEE Approved Draft Standard for Interval Arithmetic (Simplified)

Description: This standard is a simplifed version and a subset of the IEEE Std 1788TM-2015TM for Interval Arithmetic and includes those operations and features of the latter that in the the editors' view are most commonly used in practice. IEEE P1788.1 specifes interval arithmetic operations based on intervals whose endpoints are IEEE Std 754-2008TM binary64 foating-point numbers and a decoration system for exception-free computations and propagation of properties of the computed results. A program built on top of an implementation of IEEE P1788.1 should compile and run, and give identical output within round off, using an implementation of IEEE Std 1788-2015, or any superset of the former. Compared to IEEE Std 754-2008, this standard aims to be minimalistic, yet to cover much of the functionality needed for interval computations. As such, it is more accessible and will be much easier to implement, and thus will speed up production of implementations.
