Theme of Workshop:

As part of the Isaac Newton Institute Programme on Discrete Integrable Systems (19 January - 3 July 2009), we are organising a satellite workshop 30 March - 3 April 2009 "Geometric Aspects of Discrete and Ultra-Discrete Integrable Systems" to be held in Glasgow.

The local organisers are Claire Gilson, Christian Korff and Jon Nimmo. Our contact with the organisers of the Newton Institute Programme is Prof Orlando Ragnisco (Roma Tre).

Our intention is to bring together different communities of researchers working on classical and quantum aspects of integrable systems as well as experts on combinatorial representation theory and crystals. The scientific programme we envisage at this stage has three strands:

  1. Birational Yang-Baxter maps, tropical R-matrices and geometric crystals
  2. Cellular automata, box and ball systems, combinatorial R-matrices and crystal bases
  3. Geometry associated with discrete integrable systems
