Olivier Hénot
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at École Polytechnique, affiliated with the Center of Applied Mathematics (CMAP), where I work with Maxime Breden.
I specialize in the study of nonlinear differential equations, particularly those set on infinite dimensional spaces, such as delay and partial differential equations.
I investigate aspects of dynamical system theory, with a focus on invariant manifolds, connecting orbits, as well as bifurcation analysis.
This research employs numerical simulations to explore intricate dynamics, which are then rigorously coupled with analytic methods to prove ‘‘what is seen on the screen’’.
This process draws from several fields, such as numerical analysis, functional analysis and approximation theory.
I also have a particular interest for applications, specifically in celestial mechanics.
