Dear Oliver,

Yes, this might be the way. In MATLAB I got around my rounding problem by using Sigfried Rump's interval toolbox INTLAB. Many thanks for your suggestion, and thanks to the Octave community for their amazing reactivity.

Best regards,

Many thanks for the time you took to answer me and for your suggestions.
Many somebody else will feel like doing the job.




you may install the interval package with

octave:1> pkg install -forge interval
octave:2> pkg load interval

Then you can access a function called “__setround__”. See “help __setround__” for instructions.

You might also be interested in the function @infsup/nextout to produce the next higher and next lower floating point numbers.


Best regards
