Abstract

A new approach to the construction of the analytic theory of difference equations with rational and elliptic coefficients is proposed, based on the construction of canonical meromorphic solutions which are analytic along 'thick' paths. The concept of these solutions leads to the definition of local monodromies of difference equations. It is shown that, in the continuous limit, these local monodromies converge to monodromy matrices of differential equations. In the elliptic case a new type of isomonodromy transformations changing the periods of elliptic curves is constructed.
