Discrete Systems and Integrability
Organisers: FW Nijhoff, J Hietarinta, PM Santini
Theme of the EuroWorkshop: The EuroWorkshop is dedicated to the subject of the integrability of difference equations and of discrete systems. The topics include: partial difference equations, ordinary difference equations, integrable dynamical mappings, discrete Painleve equations, quantum systems on the lattice, cellular automata, special functions and orthogonal polynomials, and applications. The purpose of the workshop is to provide a platform for presenting state-of-the art results as well as to critically discuss open problems in the subject area.
Expected Speakers: V Adler (Institute of Mathematics, Ufa), P Clarkson (Univ. of Kent, Canterbury), R Conte (Saclay), A Doliwa (Warsaw University), P Hydon (Univ. of Surrey), N Joshi (University of Adelaide), K Kajiwara (Doshisha University), M Kruskal (Rutgers University), M Noumi (Kobe University), A Ramani (Ecole Polytechnique, France), S Ruijsenaars (Amsterdam), J Sanders (Free University, Amsterdam), J Satsuma (University of Tokyo), A Shabat (Landau Institute), V Sokolov (Landau Institute), C Viallet (Universite Paris VI).
Location and Cost: The EuroWorkshop will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms at Wolfson Court, a hall of residence adjacent to the Institute. The workshop package costs £650 which includes registration fee, accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 2 September 2001 until breakfast on Saturday 15 September 2001, and lunches and refreshments on the days that lectures take place. Participation is limited to 30 participants, and applications for participation will be considered on the involvement of the applicant with the subject area.
Support: The EuroWorkshop is supported by the European Community and funding is available to support a limited number of young (under 35 years of age) researchers and overseas senior researchers who are nationals of EC Member States or of the Associated States (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Israel, Switzerland).
