Outline

In a recent breakthrough, a particular multi-dimensional analogue of the two-dimensional continued fraction algorithm has been established by Lettington and his collaborators, which incorporates and extends the normal continued fraction construction of convergents to a point (x1,...,xm)∈Rm.

With the context briefly outlined, we can now state the main aim of this PhD project, which is to establish analytic bounds for the accuracy of the convergents for the multi-dimensional continued fraction algorithm, alongside exploring geometric properties of lattice point constructions for these convergents.
