Model theory of difference fields and some remarks on Galois groups

Presented by: 
Z Chatzidakis [Paris 7]
Friday 15th July 2005 - 09:00 to 10:00
INI Seminar Room 1

In this talk I will present a short survey of the results known to-date on generic difference fields. I will also discuss Galois groups of difference equations, and why the model-theoretic Galois group coincides with the classical Galois group defined using Picard-Vessiot extensions
