We study the deformations of the H equations, presented recently by Adler, Bobenko and Suris, which are naturally defined on a black–white lattice. For each one of these equations, two different three-leg forms are constructed, leading to two different discrete Toda-type equations. Their multidimensional consistency leads to Backlund transformations relating different members of this class as well as to Lax pairs. Their symmetry analysis is presented yielding infinite hierarchies of generalized…

Generalized symmetry integrability test for discrete equations on the square lattice
We present an integrability test for discrete equations on the square lattice, which is based on the existence of a generalized symmetry. We apply this test to a number of equations obtained in
Weak Lax pairs for lattice equations
We consider various 2D lattice equations and their integrability, from the point of view of 3D consistency, Lax pairs and Backlund transformations. We show that these concepts, which are associated
Discrete equation on a square lattice with a nonstandard structure of generalized symmetries
We clarify the integrability nature of a recently found discrete equation on the square lattice with a nonstandard symmetry structure. We find its L-A pair and show that it is also nonstandard. For

Continuous symmetries of difference equations
Lie group theory was originally created more than 100 years ago as a tool for solving ordinary and partial differential equations. In this article we review the results of a much more recent program:
