Although interval arithmetic is increasingly used in combination with computer algebra and other methods, both approaches  symbolicalgebraic and intervalarithmetic  are used separately. Implementing symbolic interval arithmetic seems not suitable due to the exponential growth in the "size" of the endpoints. In this paper we propose a methodology for "true" symbolicalgebraic manipulations on symbolicnumerical interval expressions involving interval variables instead of symbolic intervals. Due to the better algebraic properties, resembling to classical analysis, and the containment of classical interval arithmetic as a special case, we consider the algebraic extension of conventional interval arithmetic as an appropriate environment for solving interval algebraic problems. Based on the distributivity relations, a general framework for simplification of symbolicnumerical expressions involving intervals is given and some of the wider implications of the theory pertaining to inte...
