I should move that sentence earlier because, as you point out, it leads people to expect failure.sigfpehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08096190433222340957noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-65469430556175416422011-05-01T08:58:30.842-07:002011-05-01T08:58:30.842-07:00Um, ivt3 g produced 0.5 as expected when I ran you...Um, ivt3 g produced 0.5 as expected when I ran your code just now.

There were a lot of deltas and epsilons to keep track of. The main conclusion I came to was that I'd rather write this kind of code in cooperation with a theorem checker.sigfpehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08096190433222340957noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-26262184866437860702010-05-30T08:40:46.082-07:002010-05-30T08:40:46.082-07:00To amplify Andrej's comment, the paper has bee...To amplify Andrej's comment, the paper has been revised a lot, and in particular now contains a version of the IVT with the samer generality as the classical theorem (but a different formulation of the result) and a sketch proof of (essentially) the Brouwer fixed point theorem in R^n.Paul Taylorhttp://www.PaulTaylor.EU/ASD/lamcranoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-52665632881893245502010-05-30T06:30:43.220-07:002010-05-30T06:30:43.220-07:00Excellent!

They don't even use the delta and they make strong assumptions about the representation of the numbers (two numbers are inequal when their ith aproximation differ - even when the difference is less than delta)Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
