Description for Cambridge Texts in Applied Mathematics: Series Number 54: Discrete Systems and Integrability hardcover. A first introduction to the theory of discrete integrable systems at a level suitable for students and non-experts. Series: Cambridge Texts in Applied Mathematics. Num Pages: 458 pages, 68 b/w illus. 2 tables 98 exercises. BIC Classification: PBKJ. Category: (P) Professional & Vocational. Dimension: 186 x 254 x 31. Weight in Grams: 964.
This first introductory text to discrete integrable systems introduces key notions of integrability from the vantage point of discrete systems, also making connections with the continuous theory where relevant. While treating the material at an elementary level, the book also highlights many recent developments. Topics include: Darboux and Backlund transformations; difference equations and special functions; multidimensional consistency of integrable lattice equations; associated linear problems (Lax pairs); connections with Pade approximants and convergence algorithms; singularities and geometry; Hirota's bilinear formalism for lattices; intriguing properties of discrete Painleve equations; and the novel theory of Lagrangian multiforms. The book builds the material in ... Read more

About Jarmo Hietarinta
J. Hietarinta is Professor Emeritus of Theoretical Physics at the University of Turku, Finland. His work has focused on the search for integrable systems of various forms, including Hamiltonian mechanics, Hirota bilinear form, Yang-Baxter and tetrahedron equations, as well as lattice equations. He was instrumental in the setting up of the nlin.SI category in arxiv.org and created the web pages ... Read more
