By Marius van der Put

This publication lays the algebraic foundations of a Galois thought of linear distinction equations and indicates its dating to the analytic challenge of discovering meromorphic capabilities asymptotic to formal ideas of distinction equations. Classically, this latter query was once attacked by means of Birkhoff and Tritzinsky and the current paintings corrects and vastly generalizes their contributions. additionally effects are provided about the inverse challenge in Galois conception, potent computation of Galois teams, algebraic houses of sequences, phenomena in confident features, and q-difference equations. The ebook is aimed toward complex graduate researchers and researchers.
