At the middle of many engineering difficulties is the answer of units of equa tions and inequalities, and the optimization of price features. regrettably, other than in designated instances, reminiscent of while a suite of equations is linear in its un knowns or whilst a convex rate functionality needs to be minimized lower than convex constraints, the consequences bought by way of traditional numerical tools are just neighborhood and can't be assured. this implies, for instance, that the particular international minimal of a value functionality will not be reached, or that a few worldwide minimizers of this fee functionality could get away detection. against this, period research makes it attainable to procure assured approximations of the set of all of the real suggestions of the matter being thought of. This, including the shortcoming of books offering period suggestions in one of these method that they can turn into a part of any engineering numerical device package, inspired the writing of this ebook. the journey all started in 1991 with the practise via Luc Jaulin of his PhD thesis, lower than Eric Walter's supervision. It persevered with their joint supervision of Olivier Didrit's and Michel Kieffer's PhD theses. greater than years in the past, after we awarded our booklet venture to Springer, we naively notion that redaction will be an easy subject, given what had already been completed . . .
