As hybrid systems with mixed discrete-continuous behavior are often safety-critical applications, a rising interest in their safety verification resulted in the development of powerful tools implementing different approaches to determine the set of system states that are reachable from a given set of initial states. Besides approaches based on, e.g., theorem proving or SMT solving, flowpipe-construction-based reachability analysis is a well established method, which over-approximates the set of reachable states of a hybrid system by a union of state sets, each of them being represented by a geometric object of a certain shape (like boxes, polytopes, or zonotopes) or symbolically (like support functions or Taylor models).
