Workshop on Differential Algebra

This workshop is dedicated to interactions between nonlinear algebra and the study of differential equations, with a particular focus on computations and applications. Topics include linear PDE with constant coefficients, algebraic dynamical systems, D-modules, control theory, and the Ritt-Kolchin theory of differential polynomials.

The event will be streamed, too. Streaming information will be distributed a few days before the workshop.
