BPR - Big proof

In the long run, we should be able to formalize most of the design of cyber-physical systems and robots, to help detecting flaws at early stages of design. Among the many questions that arise, there is the question of going from an abstract design to a concrete implementation. I wish to describe two experiments where this path is taken.

  •  A question going from mathematical analysis to computer arithmetic: computing record numbers of decimals of PI
  •  A question going from geometry to combinatorial structures: describe triangulations and Voronoi Diagrams.

Part of this work was done in collaboration with Clément Sartori.
