Math Focus: Dynamical systems, analytic function theory, numerics
The inequality says that $f$ can't decrease faster than $f^2 + 1$. So $f$ can't blow up faster than the solution to the differential equation
$\dot u = u^2 + 1$ which blows up in finite time. Compute the blow up time and this must be a bound for the blow up "time" for $f$ which is of course $b-a$.
