The Anxiety-Driven Shadower

Chaotic processes have the property that relatively small numerical errors tend to grow exponentially fast. One may therefore question the validity of a computer study over times longer than this relatively short time. A relevant result in this regard is that of Anosov and Bowen who showed that systems which are uniformly hyperbolic will have the shadowing property: A numerical (or noisy) orbit will stay close to (shadow) a true orbit for all time. More recent results also apply to nonhyperbolic situations.
