Computer Assisted Proof in Analysis
Part of my research deals with nonlinear analysis of operator equations coming from applied mathematics and dynamical systems theory. The computer is a powerful tool for studying these equations, and I am especially interested in methods for obtaining mathematically rigorous results in collaboration with the computer. Many of these methods have an `a-posteriori' flavor, i.e. first we computer a good numerical approximation and then we try to get explicit bounds between the approximate and the true solution. In practice this requires a delicate balance between deliberate numerics and pen and paper mathematical analysis.
