Rohn, Jiří
We consider the conjecture formulated in the title concerning existence of a symmetric singular matrix in a singular symmetric interval matrix. We show by means of a counterexample that it is generally not valid, and we prove that it becomes true under an additional assumption of positive semide niteness of the midpoint matrix. The proof is constructive.

Absolute Value Mapping
Rohn, Jiří
We prove a necessary and sufficient condition for an absolute value mapping to be bijective. This result simultaneously gives a characterization of unique solvability of an absolute value equation for each righthand side.

Report on the Last Work by Dr. Erich Nuding
Rohn, Jiří
This is a facsimile copy of a 1994 report on the unpublished last paper by Dr. Erich Nuding. It is being made public here in the hope that even after twentytwo years it may be of interest for researchers working in the area of interval computations because of the intriguing concept of the "fourth modality" which has not been rediscovered during a quarter of century which has elapsed since its original formulation.
