I have been studying dynamical systems using **topological** and **computational** methods.
My current interest is on the real and complex **Hénon map**, especially on the structure of its hyperbolic horseshoe locus and the monodromy representation of it.

A program which implements the algorithm given in "Rigorous Computations of Homoclinic Tangencies" by ZA and Konstantin Mischaikow is available as tangency.tar.gz. See README for the instruction.

To use BIAS and Profil on PowerPC G5 (PowerPC 970), you have to add some assembler code to the program. Here is an ad-hoc patch for BiasInt.h. Although this patch is for the BIAS package distributed with GAIO, I think you can easily modify it for other versions of BIAS.
