Preprints
 Consistent systems of
linear differential and difference equations (with R.
Schaefke), Preprint, 2016
 Mahler equations and rationality
(with R. Schaefke), Preprint, 2016. This contains another
proof of a result of Adamczewski and Bell concerning Mahler
equations: A formal power series satisfying a p− and a q−Mahler
equation over C(x) with multiplicatively independent positive
integers p and q is a rational function. The proof presented
here is selfcontained and is essentially a compilation of
proofs contained in the preprint "Consistent systems of
linear differential and difference equations".
