- An optimal, stable continued fraction algorithm for arbitrary dimension (1996)
- We analyse a continued fraction algorithm (abbreviated CFA) for arbitrary dimension n showing that it produces simultaneous diophantine approximations which are up to the factor 2^((n+2)/4) best possible. Given a real vector x=(x_1,...,x_{n-1},1) in R^n this CFA generates a sequence of vectors (p_1^(k),...,p_{n-1}^(k),q^(k)) in Z^n, k=1,2,... with increasing integers |q^{(k)}| satisfying for i=1,...,n-1 | x_i - p_i^(k)/q^(k) | <= 2^((n+2)/4) sqrt(1+x_i^2) |q^(k)|^(1+1/(n-1)) By a theorem of Dirichlet this bound is best possible in that the exponent 1+1/(n-1) can in general not be increased.

- A Stable Integer Relation Algorithm (1994)
- We study the following problem: given x element Rn either find a short integer relation m element Zn, so that =0 holds for the inner product <.,.>, or prove that no short integer relation exists for x. Hastad, Just Lagarias and Schnorr (1989) give a polynomial time algorithm for the problem. We present a stable variation of the HJLS--algorithm that preserves lower bounds on lambda(x) for infinitesimal changes of x. Given x \in {\RR}^n and \alpha \in \NN this algorithm finds a nearby point x' and a short integer relation m for x'. The nearby point x' is 'good' in the sense that no very short relation exists for points \bar{x} within half the x'--distance from x. On the other hand if x'=x then m is, up to a factor 2^{n/2}, a shortest integer relation for \mbox{x.} Our algorithm uses, for arbitrary real input x, at most \mbox{O(n^4(n+\log \alpha))} many arithmetical operations on real numbers. If x is rational the algorithm operates on integers having at most \mbox{O(n^5+n^3 (\log \alpha)^2 + \log (\|q x\|^2))} many bits where q is the common denominator for x.

- Computation of highly regular nearby points (1995)
- We call a vector x/spl isin/R/sup n/ highly regular if it satisfies =0 for some short, non-zero integer vector m where <...> is the inner product. We present an algorithm which given x/spl isin/R/sup n/ and /spl alpha//spl isin/N finds a highly regular nearby point x' and a short integer relation m for x'. The nearby point x' is 'good' in the sense that no short relation m~ of length less than /spl alpha//2 exists for points x~ within half the x'-distance from x. The integer relation m for x' is for random x up to an average factor 2/sup /spl alpha//2/ a shortest integer relation for x'. Our algorithm uses, for arbitrary real input x, at most O(n/sup 4/(n+log A)) many arithmetical operations on real numbers. If a is rational the algorithm operates on integers having at most O(n/sup 5/+n/sup 3/(log /spl alpha/)/sup 2/+log(/spl par/qx/spl par//sup 2/)) many bits where q is the common denominator for x.
