Symmetries and Integrability of Difference Equations

Monday, June 14, 2010 - 5:00am to Friday, June 18, 2010 - 2:50pm

SIDE is a series of biennial conferences on the theory of difference equations, such as finite-difference equations, analytical difference equations and functional difference equations. Difference equations arise in various branches, usually distinct branches of mathematics and physics which they link together - algebraic geometry, complex analysis, representation theory, Galois theory, spectral analysis, the theory of special functions and orthogonal polynomials, graph theory, discrete time quantum systems and quantum mappings, difference geometry, field theory on space-time lattices.

The International House of Scientists is situated in the big international sea-side resort "StSt. Constantine and Elena" to the North-East of Varna (~10km from the city center).
