Abstractions lead to simpler (usually) discrete representations of dynamical systems. The obtained discrete model is then used to assert properties for the original dynamics using formal methods techniques. In this research direction, my goal is to develop data-driven approaches to construct abstractions of dynamical systems leveraging available data. The main representative papers are:
