The conference will focus on applying set-theoretic analysis in the interactions between Banach spaces and compact spaces. Every Banach space X induces the dual ball BX* which is compact in the weak* topology and through which X can be successfully investigated. On the other hand every compact space K induces the Banach space C(K) of continuous functions on K, the construction which has been used to produce numerous conterexamples in the general Banach space theory. Combinatorial analysis of the geometry of Banach spaces and set-theoretic topology in the context of weak* and weak topologies associated with Banach spaces are the methods which turned out to be particularly successful in investigating the above interactions.

#### Formal and Analytic Solutions of Differential, Difference and Discrete Equations

The theory of differential, difference and discrete equations in the complex plane is very rich. Many models of mathematical physics can be described by differential or difference equations (or integrable systems) and it is desirable to describe their solutions and their singularities, which often are related to critical phenomena. Most of the well-known special functions of mathematical physics solve differential/difference equations. Main topics: Ordinary differential equations in the complex plane. Formal and analytic solutions. Stokes multipliers. Difference and discrete equations, including the q-cases. Dynamic equations. Special functions (hypergeometric functions and others), orthogonal polynomials, continuous and discrete Painlevé equations. Formal solutions of PDEs (heat, semilinear heat, Burgers type, KdV, nonlinear Schrödinger). Holomorphic vector fields. Normal forms. Summability of WKB solutions, singular perturbations problems. Asymptotic expansions, Borel summability, Gevrey estimates. Summability of formal solutions of difference equations. Integrable systems. Applications in applied mathematics and mathematical physics.

#### Mathematics, Mechanics and Modelling. A tribute to Zbyszek Peradzyński

The progress in science is stimulated by a continuous flow of thoughts and ideas between researchers working on sometimes entirely different topics.

The scope of the conference embraces: integrable systems, mathematical modeling of plasma dynamics (ion thrusters), reaction-diffusion systems in biology ( travelling waves), hydrodynamics (superfluid helium).
