Abstract: imagine walking from one tile to another on a lattice defined by
reflections associate with an affine Coxeter or Weyl group. Examples
include triangular or hexagonal lattices on the plane. Recently, it was
discovered that translations on such lattices give rise to the Painlevé
equations, which are reductions of integrable systems that are more
familiar to applied mathematicians and mathematical physicists. I will
explain this surprising development through introductory examples and
explain the background to the discovery of the geometric theory of
continuous and discrete Painlevé equations.
