Professor Rod Halburd, Professor of Mathematics, UCL

Roughly speaking, an equation (e.g., a differential or discrete equation or a cellular automaton) is said to be integrable if it is in some sense solvable or at least if its solutions can be characterized in a particularly nice way. The integrability of an equation is not always obvious. In this talk I will describe various properties that can be used as integrability detectors. In particular, I will describe the behaviour of solutions of some differential and difference equations in the complex plane and some number-theoretic properties of solutions of discrete equations. There will also be a quick look at “tropical” mathematics.
