### Optimization and Systems Theory Seminar

####
Numerical solution of ODEs and robust control

In this talk some preliminary ideas about
the relationship between robust control and the
solution of ordinary differential equations will be
presented. Three problems will be discussed. The first
is just a toy example of solving $\dot{x}=\lambda x, \
x(0)=1$, the second is a more important example of
solving an equation whose solution should remain on
the unit sphere and the third is an example based on
using control theoretic smoothing splines as a
corrector in a predictor corrector algorithm.
