#### 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.
