INTLAB

Interval arithmetic library made by MATLAB

INTLAB (INTerval LABoratory) is an interval arithmetic library[1][2][3][4] using MATLAB. It is available in Windows and Linux, macOS. It was developed by S.M. Rump from Hamburg University of Technology. INTLAB was used to develop other MATLAB-based libraries such as VERSOFT[5] and INTSOLVER,.[6] It was also used to solve some problems in the Hundred-dollar, Hundred-digit Challenge problems.[7]
