Lattice differential equations are infinite systems of ODE's, modeled on an underlying spatial lattice with some regular structure, for example, the integer lattice in the plane. Such systems arise as models in many applications, including material science, image processing, and biology. As mathematical problems they in one sense lie between ODE's and PDE's, but very often they exhibit new phenomena not found in either of these fields. They raise a host of challengs to the researcher, and are of broad interest to scientists and mathematicians.
