The workshop focused on recent advances in the analysis of lattice differential equations such as discrete Klein-Gordon and nonlinear Schrödinger equations as well as the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam lattice. Lattice differential equations play an important role in emergent directions of modern science. These equations are fascinating subjects for mathematicians because they exhibit phenomena, which are not encountered in classical partial differential equations, on one hand, but they may present toy problems for understanding more complicated Hamiltonian differential equations, on the other hand.
