A set of numbers which consists of those numbers that are greater than one fixed number and less than another and may also include one or both end numbers. For example, the interval [1.5, 3) consists of all numbers that are greater than or equal to 1.5 and smaller than 3. Note that the number 3 is excluded from this interval.

The time (in seconds) between elevator departures from the lobby during morning up peak. An interval of 30 seconds means that a car will be leaving the lobby every 30 seconds with a load of passengers. Traditional Elevatoring theory can be used to show that the interval is equal to the calculated round trip time divided by the number of elevators.

*[mathematics]* Real intervals play an important role in the theory of integration, because they are the simplest sets whose `size` or `measure` or `length` is easy to define. The concept of measure can then be extended to more complicated sets of real numbers, leading to the Borel measure and eventually to the Lebesgue measure. Intervals are...

*[music]* In music theory, an interval is the difference between two pitches. An interval may be described as horizontal, linear, or melodic if it refers to successively sounding tones, such as two adjacent pitches in a melody, and vertical or harmonic if it pertains to simultaneously sounding tones, such as in a chord. In Western music, inte...
