Painleve Equations and Monodromy Problems: An Introduction


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

Workshop Theme

This workshop will give an introduction to Painlevé equations and monodromy problems suitable for postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Topics to be covered include: History of the Painlevé Equations; Application of the Painlevé equations to Mathematical Physics; Differential Galois theory and the Painlevé equations; Discrete Painlevé equations; Asymptotics expansions for the Painlevé equations; Connection formulae and Riemann-Hilbert problems for Painlevé equations; Algebraic and rational solutions of the Painlevé equations; Random matrix and the Painlevé equations.
