CGAL module: interval arithmetics

Keyword: Arithmetic

Functional Description: This package of CGAL (Computational Geometry Algorithms Library provides an efficient number type for intervals of double and the corresponding arithmetic operations. It is used in the evaluation of geometric predicates for a first quick computation, which either provides the result with guarantees, or rarely answers that more precision is needed.

Release Functional Description: Partial rewrite to take advantage of SIMD instructions on recent x86 processors.
