Maximilian,

this functionality is going to be part of the upcoming interval package
release, which is planned for December or January.

With the interval package you will be able to define a function, which
maps from your parameter space into your dataset space, and do a set
inversion for your constraints on the observed datasets. This sounds
more complicated than it is!

You will do the following:

function y = F (b1, b2)
A = [a_1; a_2; ...; a_n];
X = [x_1; x_2; ...; x_n];
y = A .* log (X) .* (b1 + b2 .* X);
endfunction

Y = [y_1; y_2; ...; y_n];
fsolve (@F, infsup ("[-10, 10] [-10, 10]"), Y)

Here I assume that you have datasets [x_1, y_1], ... [x_n, y_n], which
may either be exact values or ranges of values. Parameters a_1, ..., a_n
are assumed to be known and constant values or constant ranges
(otherwise you would have to add a to your parameter space, which only
contains b at the moment). The parameters b1 and b2 are searched for in
the interval [-10, 10]. The return value of fsolve will be an enclosure
of possible values for b1 and b2.

It is also possible to plot the possible values from the parameter
space. For example, the attachement shows a set inversion for the
dataset hypot (b1, b2) ∈ [0.5, 2].

The details will be explained in the documentation of the upcoming release.

Best regards
Oliver
