Complexity analysis of a semi-infinite optimization problem in interval arithmetic ## AbstractMany problems in interval arithmetic in a natural way lead to a quantifier elimination problem over the reals. By studying closer the precise form of the latter we show that in some situations it is possible to obtain a refined complexity analysis of the problem. This is done by structural considerations of the special form of the quantifiers and its implications for the analysis in a real number model of computation. Both can then be used to obtain as well new results in the Turing model. We exemplify our approach by dealing with a semi-infinite optimization problem.
