About this product
- DescriptionThe NATO Advanced Research Workshop Painleve Transcendents, their Asymp- totics and Physical Applications , held at the Alpine Inn in Sainte-Adele, near Montreal, September 2 -7, 1990, brought together a group of experts to discuss the topic and produce this volume. There were 41 participants from 14 countries and 27 lectures were presented, all included in this volume. The speakers presented reviews of topics to which they themselves have made important contributions and also re- sults of new original research. The result is a volume which, though multiauthored, has the character of a mograph on a single topic. This is the theory of nlinear ordinary differential equations, the solutions of which have movable singularities, other than poles, and the extension of this theory to partial differential equations. For short we shall call such systems equations with the Painleve property . The search for such equations was a very topical mathematical problem in the 19th century. Early work concentrated on first order differential equations. One of Painleve's important contributions in this field was to develop simple methods applicable to higher order equations. In particular these methods made possible a complete analysis of the equation;; = f(y',y,x), where f is a rational function of y' and y, with coefficients that are analytic in x. The fundamental result due to Painleve (Acta Math.
