Rigorous computing (validated computing): use numerical computations, but provide mathematical statements about the obtained result, such as sure, yet reasonably tight, error bounds. Build efficient symbolicnumeric objects, algorithms and software tools with direct applications in control of dynamical systems and in particular in the aerospace domain. Use and develop expertise and ideas from Computer Arithmetic and Computer Algebra.
A. Computer Arithmetic: With Valentina Popescu and JeanMichel Muller, we developed algorithms for fast and certified multiple precision arithmetic operations (also tuned for Graphics Processing Units). We targeted highperformance computing problems which require multiple precision e.g., the study of strange attractors such as the Hénon attractor [6]. Valentina defended her PhD thesis, cosupervised with JeanMichel Muller, on 6th of July
2017. Some related articles are [5], [2], [10], [11], [16]. Other goals: formally proven algorithms,
elementary functions implementation. Some talks: [ASAP14] [Henon13][SMC14][ICMS16]

B. Rigorous Polynomial Approximation (RPA): a polynomial approximation together with rigorous error bounds. Use Taylor Models [7, 25, 26, 20] and Chebyshev polynomial interpolation/series Models [22], [30, Chap. 4]. Adapt to rigorous computations many numerical algorithms based on Chebyshev/Taylor Series for solving ordinary differential equations, quadrature, etc. Recent results: compute rigorous uniform approximations based on Chebyshev Series for Dfinite functions, i.e. solutions of ordinary differential equations with polynomial coefficients [3] e.g., erf, exp, sin, Bessel, Airy functions. 

With Florent Bréhard and Nicolas Brisebarre, we developed a validated numerics method for the solution of linear ordinary differential equations (LODEs). A theoretical and practical complexity analysis of a socalled a posteriori quasiNewton validation method is given in [1]. Objectives: efficient implementation of operations with Chebyshev Models, extensions to multivariate functions; efficient finite precision evaluation of power series. Some talks: [RPA] [TAMADI][SeaMac][RAIM2017] 

C. Applications to Optimal Control and Aerospace:


With Denis Arzelier, Florent Bréhard, and JeanBernard Lasserre, we are currently attempting to approximately reconstruct the support of the initial collisionprone states in a twoobjects longterm encounter. Given a finite number of numerically computed moments for a measure with holonomic density, and assuming a real algebraic boundary for the support, we develop a method for obtaining the coefficients of a polynomial vanishing on this boundary.
