Programme Summary
The first week takes the form of the 2006 LMS Invited Lecture Series, a series of 10 expository lectures on the Galois Theory of Differential and Difference Equations delivered by Professor Singer and supplemented by courses and discussions on other related topics. Lectures are aimed at graduate students, post-docs and researchers from complementary areas.

The second week is a multi-disciplinary workshop which aims to promote interdisciplinary research in the areas of Differential Algebra and Differential Galois Theory, Model Theory, the Theory of Integrable Equations and Computer Algebra applications. It is the first attempt to integrate these rather distinct branches of Mathematics, focusing on the development of the algebraic theory of differential and difference equations. Attendance at the workshop is by invitation only.

This workshop is made possible by grants awarded to ICMS from EPSRC Mathematical Sciences Programme, the Scottish Higher Education Funding Council and the London Mathematical Society.

The London Mathematical Society funds Professor Singer's visit and the both the LMS and Edinburgh Mathematical Society provided grants to assist the participation of younger researchers in the first week. The Royal Society of Edinburgh provided support for the programme as a whole.
