Orders of infinities: asymptotic valued differential fields

Nigel Pynn-Coates (UIUC Math)

Abstract: Asymptotic valued differential fields go back to work of Hardy and are motivated by comparing the asymptotic behaviour of solutions to differential equations. I will introduce valued differential fields and discuss some of this history. We will see how versions of líHŰpitalís Rule show up as key properties in the subject. Along the way, I will draw some pictures to illustrate the topology of valued fields. Time permitting, I may mention some of my results or ongoing work.
