A Certificate-Based Approach to Formally Verified Approximations

Abstract

We present a library to verify rigorous approximations of univariate functions on real numbers, with the Coq proof assistant. Based on interval arithmetic, this library also implements a technique of validation a posteriori based on the Banach fixed-point theorem. We illustrate this technique on the case of operations of division and square root. This library features a collection of abstract structures that organise the specfication of rigorous approximations, and modularise the related proofs. Finally, we provide an implementation of verified Chebyshev approximations, and we discuss a few examples of computations.
