Irreducibility and generic ODEs Nagloo, Joel


The irreducibility of an ODE is a notion that was introduce by P. Painlevé at the turn of the 20th century and later refined by H. Umemura. Roughly, an ODE is irreducible if all of its solutions are â newâ functions. This notion is also almost equivalent to strong minimality, a central notion in model theory. In this talk we will go over the definitions of these concepts and discuss new methods to prove that ODEs with generic constant parameters are irreducible. We use the Painlevé equations as examples.
