I like to know a formal equivalent phrase for "is considered below". I spoke with a friend from Ireland, and he said that phrase is not correct for a scientific paper. But, he could not help me with that.

An example is the following.

"The solution of the problem ___________ [is considered below]"

Any suggestions?

A word which may help here is review. The ODO entry for review lists consider as a synonym if that helps.

"The solution to the problem is reviewed below."


review VERB

1.2 Survey or evaluate (a subject or past events)

‘in the next chapter we review a number of recent empirical studies’
