research focus

  • set-valued numerics
    (esp. interpolation, integration, approximation, selections and fixed points of set-valued maps)
  • differential inclusions
    (esp. reachable sets at a given time, approximation of trajectories, discontinuous differential equations, impulsive systems)
  • optimal control problems and control theory
    (esp. direct discretization methods, convergence of discretization methods, numerical computation of Lyapunov functions and invariant sets)
  • convex analysis
    (esp. representation of sets, arithmetic set operations, difference of convex sets and functins (DC), embeddings of convex compacts into a Banach space)
  • nonsmooth optimization
    (esp. nonconvex subdifferentials, DC and quasidifferentiable functions, optimality conditions)
