Michael Jampel asked: Would anyone like to comment on the integration of Newton's approximation method with interval constraint solvers? Pascal Van Hentenryck <pvh@cs.brown.edu> replied: You may want to look at our recent technical report CS-94-18: CLP(Intervals) Revisited F. Benhamou, D. McAllester, and P. Van Hentenryck which describes precisely a smooth integration of Newton method into a CLP(Intervals) language. The language, called Newton, was applied to some traditional benchmarks in this area and compared with specific tools.
