We will be concerned with a so-called dynamic equation on a time scale (a time scale is just a closed subset of the real numbers). If the time scale is the set of real numbers, then the dynamic equation is a differential equation, while if the time scale is the integers, then the dynamic equation is a difference equation. Hence our study will be a unification and generalization of these two areas of mathematics. No previous knowledge of time scales will be assumed, but we will particularly be interested in new developments and applications of this area of research. Anyone interested in either differential equations or difference equations will be interested in this 2009 Rocky Mountain Mathematics Consortium Conference.
