Revisiting the Human and Nature Dynamics Model
2020, vol. 25, no. 2, pp. 178198
Abstract
We present a simple model for describing the dynamics of the interaction between
a homogeneous population or society, and the natural resources and reserves that the society
needs for its survival. The model is formulated in terms of ordinary differential equations,
which are subsequently discretised, the discrete system providing a natural integrator for the
continuous one. An ultradiscrete, generalised cellular automatonlike, model is also derived.
The dynamics of our simple, threecomponent, model are particularly rich exhibiting either a
route to a steady state or an oscillating, limit cycletype regime or to a collapse. While these
dynamical behaviours depend strongly on the choice of the details of the model, the important
conclusion is that a collapse or near collapse, leading to the disappearance of the population or
to a complete transfiguration of its societal model, is indeed possible.

Seconddegree Painlevé Equations and Their Contiguity Relations
2014, vol. 19, no. 1, pp. 3747
Abstract
We study secondorder, seconddegree systems related to the Painlevé equations which possess one and two parameters. In every case we show that by introducing a quantity related to the canonical Hamiltonian variables it is possible to derive such a seconddegree equation. We investigate also the contiguity relations of the solutions of these higherdegree equations. In most cases these relations have the form of correspondences, which would make them nonintegrable in general. However, as we show, in our case these contiguity relations are indeed integrable mappings, with a single ambiguity in their evolution (due to the sign of a square root).

Quantum Painlevé Equations: from Continuous to Discrete and Back
2008, vol. 13, no. 5, pp. 417423
Abstract
We present a cascade of quantum Painlevé equations consisting in successive contiguity relations, whereupon starting form a continuous equations we obtain a discrete one, and continuous limits of the latter. We start from the quantum Painlevé V and in the process derive the quantum form of continuous P_{III} which was missing in previous studies.

Generating discrete Painlevé equations from affine Weyl groups
2005, vol. 10, no. 2, pp. 145152
Abstract
We show how, starting from the geometrical description of discrete Painlevé equations in terms of affine Weyl groups, one can generate new secondorder systems. We use this approach to introduce a new definition of the discrete Painlevé equations which eschews the reference to continuous systems.

The $q$discrete Painlevé IV equations and their properties
2004, vol. 9, no. 1, pp. 1320
Abstract
We present a detailed study of the properties of two qdiscrete Painlevé IV equations: singularity structure, bilinear forms, autoBäcklund/Schlesinger transformations, rational solutions as well as special solutions obtained through second or firstorder linear equations.

Integrable ThirdOrder Mappings and their Growth Properties
2001, vol. 6, no. 4, pp. 443448
Abstract
We study the degree growth of the iterates of the initial conditions for a class of thirdorder integrable mappings which result from the coupling of a discrete Painlevé equation to an homographic mapping. We show that the degree grows like $n^3$. In the special cases where the mapping satisfies the singularity confinement requirement we find a slower, quadratic growth. Finally we present a method for the construction of integrable $N$thorder mappings with degree growth $n^N$.

Asymmetric Discrete Painleve Equations
2000, vol. 5, no. 3, pp. 273280
Abstract
We investigate the possible integrable nonautonomous forms of a given class of mappings involving more than one dependent variable. These integrable discrete systems define "asymmetric" Painlevé equations. Our main tool of investigation is the application of the singularity confinement discrete integrability criterion. A new way of implementing it, first proposed for the singularity analysis of continuous systems, is also introduced.

The Hunting for the Discrete Painleve Equations
2000, vol. 5, no. 1, pp. 5366
Abstract
We review our findings on discrete Painleve equations with emphasis on the two direct methods we have proposed for their derivation: deautonomisation through singularity confinement and geometrical approach based on affine Weyl groups. The question of integrability of discrete Painleve equations is also addressed in terms of the existence of a Lax pair or of a description in the frame of the Grand Scheme. A list of discrete Painleve equations, as complete as possible but still not exhaustive, is also presented.
