Three forms of interval floating-point arithmetic are defined in terms of absolute precision, relative precision, and combined absolute and relative precision. The absolute-precision form corresponds to the centered form of conventional rounded-interval arithmetic. The three forms are compared on the basis of the number of floating-point operations needed to generate error bounds for inner-product accumulation.
