CGAL module: interval arithmetics

Keyword: Arithmetic

Functional Description: This package of CGAL (Computational Geometry Algorithms Library http://www.cgal.org) 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.
