Abstract

In this paper, we give the concepts of \(H\)-directional differentiability and \(D\)-directional differentiability of interval-valued functions. Then we discuss the properties of \(H\)-directional differentiable interval-valued functions and \(D\)-directional differentiable interval-valued functions. The necessary and sufficient conditions for the \(H\)-directional differentiability are given together with the sufficient conditions and the necessary and sufficient conditions for \(D\)-directional differentiability of interval-valued functions. Then we discuss the relationship between the two directional differentiability and prove these directional differentiability can be equivalent under a certain conditions.

Keywords
