It is shown that discrete analogs of zc and log(z), defined via particular "integrable" circle patterns, have the same asymptotic behavior as their smooth counterparts. These discrete maps are described in terms of special solutions of discrete Painlevé-II equations, asymptotics of these solutions providing...

By associating polynomials and power series expansions with sln(C) modules we dscribe the theory of Padé approximants in terms of tensor products of representations and interpret their recurrence relations algebraically. The treatment links with the theory of Hirota derivatives and discrete integrable...

First, we recall the algebro-geometric method of construction of finite field valued solutions of the discrete KP equation, and next we perform a reduction of dKP to the discrete 1D Toda equation.

The theory of dynamic inclusions on a time scale is introduced, hence accommodating the special cases of differential inclusions and difference inclusions. Fixed point theory for set-valued upper semicontinuous maps, Green's functions, and upper and lower solutions are used to establish existence results...

The Somos 4 sequences are a family of sequences satisfying a fourth order bilinear recurrence relation. In recent work, one of us has proved that the general term in such sequences can be expressed in terms of the Weierstrass sigma function for an associated elliptic curve. Here we derive the analogous...

We describe a few families of orthogonal matrix polynomials of size N × N satisfying first order differential equations. This problem differs from the recent efforts reported for instance in [7] (Orthogonal matrix polynomials satisfying second order differential equations, Internat. Math. Research Notices,...

We show that the m-dimensional EulerManakov top on so (m) can be represented as a Poisson reduction of an integrable Hamiltonian system on a symplectic extended Stiefel variety ¯V(k, m), and present its Lax representation with a rational parameter. We also describe an integrable two-valued symplectic...

We prove bispectral duality for the generalized CalogeroMoserSutherland systems related to configurations An,2(m), Cn(l, m). The trigonometric axiomatics of the BakerAkhiezer function is modified, the dual difference operators of rational Madonald type and the BakerAkhiezer functions related to both...

It is known that many equations of interest in Mathematical Physics display solutions which are only asymptotically invariant under transformations (e.g. scaling and/or translations) which are not symmetries of the considered equation. In this note we extend the approach to asymptotic symmetries for...

A family of real Hamiltonian forms (RHF) for the special class of affine 1 + dimensional Toda field theories is constructed. Thus the method, proposed in [1] for systems with finite number of degrees of freedom is generalized to infinite-dimensional Hamiltonian systems. We show that each of these RHF...

It is shown that the 2-discrete dimensional Lotka-Volterra lattice, the two dmensional Toda lattice equation and the recent 2-discrete dimensional Toda lattice equation of Santini et al can be obtained from a 2-discrete 2-continuous dimensional Lotka-Volterra lattice.

In a recent paper we introduced a new 2 + 1-dimensional non-isospectral extension of the Volterra lattice hierarchy, along with its corresponding hierarchy of underlying linear problems. Here we consider reductions of this lattice hierarchy to hierarchies of discrete equations, which we obtain once again...

The problem of the classification of integrable truncations of the Toda chain is dicussed. A new example of the cutting off constraint is found.

In this paper one considers the problem of finding solutions to a number of Todtype hierarchies. All of them are associated with a commutative subalgebra of the k×k-matrices. The first one is formulated in terms of upper triangular Z×Z-matrices, the second one in terms of lower triangular ones and the...

For two-dimensional lattice equations the standard definition of integrability is that it should be possible to extend the map consistently to three dimensions, i.e., that it is "consistent around a cube" (CAC). Recently Adler, Bobenko and Suris conducted a search based on this principle, together with...

We present q-discretizations of a second order differential equation in two independent variables that not only go to the differential counterpart as q goes to 1 but admit Moutard-Darboux transformations as well.

We consider a longrange homogeneous chain where the local variables are the geerators of the direct sum of N e(3) interacting Lagrange tops. We call this classical integrable model rational "Lagrange chain" showing how one can obtain it starting from su(2) rational Gaudin models. Moreover we construct...

For positive parameters a+ and a- the commuting difference operators exp(ia±d/dz) + exp(2z/a), acting on meromorphic functions f(z), z = x + iy, are formally self-adjoint on the Hilbert space H = L2 (R, dx). Volkov showed that they admit joint eigenfunctions. We prove that the joint eigenfunctions for...

In this paper an extension of the q-deformed Volterra equation associated with linear rescaling to the general non-linear rescaling is obtained.

In this paper, we first present the Casorati and grammian determinant solutions to a special two-dimensional lattice by Blaszak and Szum. Then, by using the pfaffianiztion procedure of Hirota and Ohta, a new integrable coupled system is generated from the special lattice. Moreover, gram-type pfaffian...

We consider the generalized eigenvalue problem A = B for two operators A, B. Self-similar closure of this problem under a simplest Darboux transformation gives rise to two possible types of regular algebras of dimension 2 with generators A, B. Realiztion of the operators A, B by tri-diagonal operators...
