Nobutaka Nakazono

Nobutaka NakazonoI am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in integrable and near-integrable nonlinear systems at the University of Sydney. This position is supported by Prof. Nalini Joshi’s Georgina Sweet Australian Laureate Fellowship grant.

You can read my CV and my complete publications list.


I have studied discrete Painlevé equations, especially their special solutions, reductions, Weyl group symmetries and so on. My current interests are the relations between ABS equations and discrete Painlevé equations, general solutions to discrete Painlevé equations and Lax pairs of discrete Painlevé equations.
